We love startups at StickerGiant. And not just because startups love stickers.
This set of high contrast black and yellow stickers for the Lean Startup Machine workshop includes three awesome quotes that get to the core of it:
- Fail Fast. Success Faster
- Invalidate My Assumptions, and
- What Took You Six Months Took Me 3 Days.
So what's it all about?
Lean Startup Machine is a workshop & educational series. Our focus is on teaching founders a process through case studies and hands-on mentoring. Three days is an extremely short amount of time to reliably validate a new product or service concept, yet it’s enough time to get a significant amount done.
There are upcoming workshops in Boston on December 7 – 9, New York on December 7 – 9, London on January 18 – 20, Los Angeles on January 18 – 20, Sao Paulo on February 1 – 3, and Miami on February 22 – 24.
Which brings us to our weekly trivia question ...
Q: What Percentage of Startups Fail?
A: It's anybody's guess!
Scott Shane, Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies at Case Western Reserve University, documented in a study for his book, Illusions of Entrepreneurship: The Costly Myths that Entrepreneurs, Investors, and Policy Makers Live By, that just 29 percent of new businesses had survived after ten years.
