"As well as giving a presentation on experiment design Robbert will be sticking around for Leancamp to run a Playing Lean session.
Playing Lean is a Lean Startup board game that helps to sumulate the experience of launching a successful product."
Startup founders often struggle to get going with Lean Startup. Firmhouse has been specializing in the craft of designing the right experiments and prioritizing on the riskiest parts of your startup business. Bob and Robbert are both entrepreneurs and are enrolled as mentors in many Dutch accelerators, incubators and such. We've been specializing in Experiment Design for Lean Startup throughout the years. The presentation sketches a path from Customer Discovery to Confirmation Experiments to an MVP.
This talk will cover: A complete overview of possible experiments startup founders can execute to test their ideas and assumptions, learning how to prioritize and how to design a suitable experiment and examples from other startups straight from Bob & Robbert's practice as mentors.
