For those of us who have done the rollercoaster ride of a startup that looks like it’s going up, up, and away only to crash back down to Earth when the reality of the marketplace hits I think you’ll find Eric Ries’ (of the fantastic blog Startup Lessons Learned) presentation from on Lean startups to be an enlightening video to watch.   If you’ve been there like I have you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll also learn a lot about how to take the lessons of Lean and apply them better to your next venture.
