This Week the Lean Startup Machine, a weekend event which encourages education about the lean startup methodology, opened fifty early bird tickets to its first event Paris. The event series, similar to Startup Weekend in its grassroots adopting around the world, focuses less on product development and more on customer development and validating hypotheses.
To help as mentors during their first event, Lean Startup Machine has lined up some pretty awesome entrepreneurs from the Paris ecosystem, including Leetchi CEO Celine Lazorthes, HeyCrowd CEO Emmanuel Bellity, Dealissime founder and CEO of LivingSocial France Tatiana Jama, Alain Baritault from the Founder Institute Paris, and Alice Zagury of LeCamping.
Having helped organize three Startup Weekend Paris events this year alone, I can tell you that this event will be nothing like Startup Weekend – in fact, it’s not even meant for the same crowd. Lean Startup Machine is the Biz Guy equivalent of Startup Weekend’s “tech event.” The event will take your ideas and refine them on Friday, and on Saturday you will be asked to put your hypotheses to the test, and on Sunday, you will present what you’ve learned on Sunday. One concentrated Build-Test-Learn cycle with mentors, colleagues, and speakers to assist.
Tickets are limited, so get yours now!
