Steve Blank and the Lean Startup
One of my favorite comedies is the movie Old School. I only make mention of it because in the movie the main character is referred to as the “Godfather”. They never really explain why or how he got the name, but we are led to believe it is because he started the fraternity in the movie.
Steve Blank is the Godfather of the Lean Start-Up and recently shared his insights with Cofounder magazine. It would be wrong to call him old school because his innovative ideas surrounding entrepreneurship and customer development are a break from conventional wisdom. However, in terms of unconventional thinking he is the authority for today's entrepreneurs.
