Author, entrepreneur Diana Kander to speak in Lincoln on Nov. 19

diana_kander_5x7New York Times bestselling author Diana Kander will be in Lincoln Nov. 19 to give a talk about how writing a book is like starting a startup.

The Spark Series talk is 9 a.m., Wed. Nov. 19 at Catalyst, 350 Canopy St., Suite 130. It appears the talk is full, but a wait list has been started on Eventbrite.

Kander, a serial entrepreneur and advisor to the Kauffman Foundation, will discuss using lean startup methodology to create one of the least lean products, a book.

She released “All in Startup” this summer and it quickly rose on the New York Times bestselling list.

The novel outlines lessons for launching successful products through a story of a struggling entrepreneur making his way through the World Series of Poker.

She’ll talk about how treating the book like a business and conducting interviews and experiments has made a big difference in its success.

A sought-out public speaker, consultant and writer, Kander has advised startup founders and Fortune 500 executives on her methodology for launching customer-focused products and services.
