MP3 File (run time 26:46)

tlecover Podcast #162    @pv and @BrantCooper, The #Lean Entrepreneur leanMy guests for episode #162 are Patrick Vlaskovits  (@pv)  and  Brant Cooper  (@brantcooper), previously guests on episode #99. I recently ran into them at the Lean Startup Conference and today we are speaking about their newest book (coming in February) The Lean Entrepreneur: How to Create Products, Innovate with New Ventures, and Disrupt Markets. You can learn more and pre-order via their website:

www.LeanEntrepreneur.co

If you pre-order, you have the chance to win some cool stuff or unique experiences.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • What is Lean Entrepreneurship?
  • How does Lean create disruptive innovations?
  • Why is it better to fail fast and learn your idea isn’t viable sooner rather than later?
  • Why is “follow your passion” really bad advice?
  • What’s a value stream in the context of a startup?
  • Why would data “inform decisions” rather than “make” them for you?

Their books:
