“When I read Lean Startup, I was a filmmaker becoming an internet company founder and I was SO BUMMED I hadn’t read it before I produced my first film. When Ondi introduced me to the idea of Lean Content I was thrilled for the entire entertainment industry: we can learn to apply the creative business techniques that have helped to build thousands of flourishing companies. Lean Content is required for every content creator who wants to make a living doing what they love.”
