What is Lean Museum Startup?

Lean Museum Startup is a concept based on Eric Ries‘ (@ericries, co-founder of IMVU and founder of The Lean Startup [(Amazon UK – Amazon US)]) Lean Startup® and other concepts and methodologies like Alexander Osterwalder‘s Business Model Generation (Amazon USAmazon UK), Steve Blank‘s and Bob Dorf‘s The Startup Owner’s Manual (Amazon UK, Amazon US) or Design Thinking (Amazon US, Amazon UK) and more.

It differs from the Lean Startup® in the way as it addresses the specific preconditions of cultural institutions: Most of them are not profit oriented, cannot change their “business model” in the sense they cannot sell their exhibits and mutate to e.g. a theatre or a fish’n chips stand.
