Lean Startup Montreal is organizing a very interesting event, geared toward agile innovation and decision making. Their guest speaker, Davender Gupta is developping a strategic approach to help startups enter their first market and scale using Lean Startup principles. His approach reduces risk and accelerates progress while being agile and resilient. This is a project he is working on as part of his Executive MBA course at McGill-HEC Montréal.
Davender will share his findings with us and set the stage for the workshop. This promesses rich value added content!
