Lean Startup is not about money — in fact, this is NOT an article about ROI through displacement. If that topic interests you, your local Salesforce sales rep would be happy to tell you more.
For the uninitiated, Lean Startup is all about customer discovery and iterative learning. Before we get into how we’ve utilized expensive software to to do that, let me point out a few nuances about our business.

Each year, SDVG opens applications to the community, gathering hundreds of the most exciting businesses, ready to raise Seed, Series A and Series B funding. Then with an expert selection committee sourced from the community, SDVG picks the top 30 to 40 companies with greatest potential and revolutionary to their industry — and dubs them ‘cool.’ Startups selected to be Cool Companies are invited to attend private settings with Venture Capitalists. SDVG’s Cool Companies from 2016 and 2017 have collectively since raised over $100M. In terms of companies attracting capital, the 30 SDVG Cool Companies of 2017 outperformed the 200 companies in last year’s TechCrunch program in San Francisco.
