Show #82 Ash Maurya: the one person lean startup

The Startup Success Podcast

The Startup Success Podcast

This week Bob and Pat wrap up our interview with Ash Maurya about applying Lean Startup practices to a one person startup for fun and profit, testing your startup, how to pivot if you are not getting results and more.

Ash is both a leading light in the Lean Startup movement and is the founder of BoxCloud.com, CloudFire.com and CloudStack.com.

And a quick word about our sponsor, InfluAds. If your startup’s market is other startups, web developers and designers why not reach out to them through with a small, tasteful ad at sites they already read? That’s how InfulAds works. Act now, mention “SSP” and save 20% on you first ad buy. InfluAds.com – ads for startups by a Startup.

Show #81 Ash Maurya: Effective Startup Market Research

The Startup Success Podcast

The Startup Success Podcast

This week in the first of a two-part podcast, Bob and Pat talk with Ash Maurya about both the Lean Startup theory and the gritty details of how and why you should do market research before you start cranking out code. If you’ve never done market research for your startup, you are going to want to take notes – this is what you need to hear, and do. Ash is both a leading light in the Lean Startup movement and is the founder of BoxCloud.com, CloudFire.com and CloudStack.com.

Apologies for not having a show the past two weeks: work demands and family issues for both Bob and Pat got in the way. Now that things are somewhat back to normal, we will be taking steps to make sure there’s a new Startup Success Podcast every Monday afternoon (PT).

Show #49 Eric Ries, Lean Startup and product/market fit

The Startup Success Podcast

The Startup Success Podcast

This week Bob talks with Eric Ries about his Lean Startup concept and taking an entirely different approach to building your startup. Is 1 success and 9 failures the only way to build software startups? Eric doesn’t think so, and he convinced me. This is an approach to building your startup that I predict will get a lot of attention in 2010.

Patrick focuses on the new Microsoft Silverlight 4 beta and Bob’s staff chimes in during the main interview to wish you from all of us a Happy New Year!
