Startup Weekend Amsterdam

So I'm at Startup Weekend in Amsterdam, learning about customer validation and lean startups. It's a pretty crazy environment, lots of energy and even a famous speaker to get us started:

Steve Blank makes a surprise appearance at #swams
After the pitches I joined a startup that helps researchers find foreign correspondents in hard to research countries.  The're doing some interesting things around quickly geolocating potential corespondents.

Right now my team are looking to talk to anyone who does foreign research e.g financial analysts, journalists, academics or perhaps an internationally expanding business.  If you or anyone you know does this kind of thing drop me a line via email (ben at or twitter @agileben.

Wish us luck, I'll let you know how it goes in this or future posts.
