Lean Startup Circle is a community of entrepreneurs who are interested in lean startup methodology.

Basically it's a group of (mostly tech) entrepreneurs starting businesses who help each other out.

It is a playful group, but startups are about late nights full of caffeine. I tried to do a simple logo with a coffee stain for the circle, but could not get it to look quite right.
The "circle" in this case refers to:
- simplicity of zen
- a circular table where you might have a meeting of equals (like King Arthur's round table)
- The build-measure-learn loop that is used in lean startup. This is an iterative process of continuous improvement through small steps.
Please feel free to send very very rough sketches. I will give quick feedback. I do not mind very rough sketches and can get an idea of the direction very quickly without a lot of fine polish.
