The Lean Startup Suite

Lean for Games. Lecture

Developing games costs money and time. How can creatives, developers and content producers use lean startup principles to define their product, test their market and build community. Could building a ”minimum viable game” give you access to information you need to know now. What about monetization and finance, could using lean lessen the risk and prove you have developed something worthwhile and valuable, while costing you a whole  lot less?
This discussion will look at how games companies and content developers can apply lean startup principles to develop their business and to get to market with a product users really want.
