This week we interview Ash Maurya. Ash was brought in by PropelICT as part of their launch36 initiative. Ash held a bootcamp in Saint John last week that was attended by over 50 people from the Maritimes. It was an excellent workshop. His talk about Lean Startups was excellent.
One of the parts I enjoyed the most was the Lean Canvas which is available here - http://leancanvas.com/ for free. I filled in our canvas for Startup Kitchen and it made me really think about why we are doing what we are doing. We will be redoing our canvas and putting it up here soon. It would be great to see other canvases.
Unfortunately, this interview was not planned very well and I had to do this interview by a water fountain, :-) so apologies for the background noise. Some of the background noise has been edited out in the audio file but it is still not the best. But, it is a lesson learnt and we will be more proactive in the future to find good locations for interviews.
Despite the background noise, we believe that there is a lot of useful information here. I found it to be very inspiring and found him very convincing. You can also pre-order Ash's upcoming book via this link
