Sam McAfee focuses on quantitative risk modeling approaches when developing new products or services that do not have a well understood product/market fit scenario. Using modeling approaches like Monte Carlo simulations and Cost of Delay scenarios, he explores how lean innovative teams can bring scientific rigor back into their Lean Startup process.

He co-founded a web development agency in 2002 which he ran for a decade, before joining as the Director of Web Engineering in 2012, and then serving as VP of Engineering for Luxr in 2013.
