NEXT Update #17 - No, you don’t need a damn app for your MVP
By NEXT Amsterdam • Issue #17
This week we finished our work for our NY-based studio startup, achieving problem/solution fit. Now it’s time to start iterating towards product/market fit, one experiment at a time.
Have yourself a merry little christmas and we will see you next year!

Because there is much confusion about lean startup and it is generally harder to do than to read about, we decided to write a series of practical blogposts about Lean Startup, explaining all the steps involved. This is the first.
You do not need an app for your MVP, or even a developer, or a logo! Keep it simple and provide value for one customer. A MVP is a solution experiment, not a solution.
When facing constraints you can either give up or embrace your constraints. Audi won LeMans not with the fastest (they couldn’t build it), but with the most efficient car.  Startup life is no different.
