The Event

Lean Startup Machine (LSM) is a three-day workshop on building a successful business. Most new ventures fail because they build something no one wants. LSM teaches you a process for discovering which products will succeed in the marketplace and which won't. LSM is an immersive, 48-hour educational experience, NOT a conference and NOT a hackathon.
