Alongside Wamda’s Mix N’ Mentor Amman on May 24th, serial entrepreneur Calvin Chin will lead a Lean Startup Workshop for the event’s attendees at Mirage, in Kan Zaman Village. The event is free for those who register for MnM Amman.
The Lean Startup is a specific business approach coined by Eric Ries, which uses a flexible, agile structure that encourages frequent iteration, based on customer interviews and feedback.
Chin will dive into how to adopt this approach for your startup, at any stage in your development, to focus on customer development and create a product that people actually want to buy.
Join the workshop to learn more about how to listen to customers, how to scale through validated learning, and to hear common mistakes that other entrepreneurs make along the way.
