The Lean Startup method is now being used by entrepreneurs and social enterprises of all levels to create scalable, sustainable models for social impact.
According to Eric Ries, Author of the Lean Startup and Founder of the Lean Startup movement, “Lean Impact is turning Lean Startup into a road map for social good organizations...”
Creating social change is slightly different than running a startup, so the Lean Impact and Lean thinking movement is adapting Lean principles to the unique challenges and opportunities of organizations working for the social good.

Lean Impact still encourages testing and experimentation, it values customer feedback over intuition, and uses iterative methods instead of “waterfall” development but now for the social good. For more information visit www.innovatorsplussocialgood.org
