‘Lean Start-up’ expert to hold workshop in Dublin

26 Oct 2011

Ash Maurya

Author of ‘Running Lean’ and founder of USERCycle.com Ash Maurya is running a two-day workshop focusing on how lean principles can be applied to Irish start-ups on 11 November.

Thousand Seeds and NDRC in collaboration with the Irish Software Association are making the workshop, to be held at Chartered Accountants House, as part of Innovation Dublin.

Its aim is to provide 100 of Ireland’s innovators with an insight into what it takes to build game-changing products and companies on a local and global basis. 

Maurya will go beyond the typical overview of the ‘Lean Startup’ methodology, focusing on in-depth queries ranging from start-up challenges to successful lean-start-up solutions. He will provide real-time examples and practical tools for attendees to utilise in moving their concept to market-ready status.

“As part of NDRC LaunchPad, we use Maurya’s Business Model Canvas to help our start-ups develop a customer-centric approach,” said NDRC LaunchPad lead mentor Gary Leyden.

“As well as high-touch mentorship, a small level of investment, and a space within NDRC for 12 weeks, NDRC LaunchPad is committed to providing start-ups with a sensible framework to iterative product development.”
