Eric Ries is the founder and CEO of LTSE, the company that is affiliated with the SEC-approved Long-Term Stock Exchange, which seeks to build a new relationship between companies that are built to last and the stakeholders who believe in them. Eric is an entrepreneur who created the Lean Startup methodology and wrote the New York Times bestseller The Lean Startup. He was named by Fortune to its 2018 "40 Under 40."
Our conversation covers Eric’s early startup experience, the core principles of a Lean Startup, his path to creating LTSE, key components of its business philosophy, value proposition, and business model, and the application of Lean Startup principles to building this business.
LTSE’s mission is extraordinarily important to improve investment outcomes in public markets for all of our benefit. I encourage you to join the LTSE’s Long-Term Investor Coalition on its website ltse.com or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and ask questions of companies and managers you meet with to keep this movement top of mind.
