Launching a new enterprise whether it’s a tech start-up, a small business, or an initiative within a large corporation has always been a hit-or-miss proposition. According to the decades-old formula, you write a business plan, pitch it to investors, assemble a team, introduce a product, and start selling as hard as you can against all odds.  A countervailing approach with the “lean start-up” has emerged to streamline the process of starting a company while reducing risky. Favouring  experimentation over elaborate planning, customer feedback over intuition, and iterative design over traditional “big design up front” development, its “minimum viable product” and “pivoting” has quickly taken root in the start-up world. 

From Startup to Standout will plug you into the lean startup insiders scoop of going from a kitchen napkin idea to a $37 million powerhouse.  Equip your entrepreneurial tool belt with strategies on growth hacking, VC funding, and virtual international rollouts; Develop an approach towards attracting entrepreneur rock stars like Sean Parker and Andreessen Horowitz to invest in your startup; Get a roadmap on propelling a startup with a disruptive technology to attract fast growth and media coverage. And finally, what's the difference between VC funding in the US and in Canada?
