Podcast #219 – Tristan Kromer (@TriKro), #LeanStartup Coaching

MP3 File (run time 41:30)

kromerJoining me for episode #219 is Tristan Kromer, a professional “Lean Startup” coach who works with startups around the world and volunteers for the non-profit Lean Startup Circle.

In this episode, we discuss topics including how he got involved in the Lean Startup movement, the difference between a coach and a consultant, and lessons from various startups. When are you “pivoting” versus just giving up on an idea? Tristan also talks about why being data driven and scientific “is the aspiration” and why somebody who “starts from a profound state of ignorance” can be helpful by asking the right questions.

You can find Tristan on Twitter @trikro and via his blog. Read his bio here.
