Hello and welcome to our meetup! This introductory meeting is a short, powerful overview to our "view of the world" and vocabulary of the early-stage startup. We do this introduction everytime so that new people coming in can "catch up" and "be on the same page." Regular attenders (who have heard it a few times) might come in right at the end of it and together we launch into the topic of the day.
What we cover -- We start with a map of the stages of a startup and explain concepts like "product-market fit,' the importance of "the offer", "customer development," and other concepts that help with perspective and priorities. You will see many ideas that you have heard from different sources come together into one picture. Once we have this, we can get deeper into the topic of the meetup using the same context.
