The discussion focuses on his book "Understanding Lean Startup" which can be found on Amazon here - https://www.amazon.com/dp/ B01FICKQ08
In this book and discussion learn about:
1. Learn the power of the Business Model Canvas (BMC) and its nine components.
2. Invest time searching, finding, and executing an idea before spending money.
3. Discover how validated learning trumps all other ways to start a new business.
4. Understand the importance of the product/market fit (a problem and its solution).
5. Establish demand by really listening to the customer then fund, expand, and scale.
6. Test the minimum feature that demonstrates a unique value, and just start.
