Exchange ideas, learn what works and what does not, brainstorm with peers, and find partners are the main ideas for Lean Startup Breakfast Singapore Group meetup. Their next meetup will be held next month, 8 July with topic Customer Acquisition. Focusing only on tech startup, the first meetup was held last month, May. This group is organized by Deric Loh of TheEZSuite.com, a joint venture between SingPost and Paypal.
