The Lean Startup Conference
On December 3 and 4, 2012, The Lean Startup Conference brings together innovators from startups and established companies alike to share lessons for building profitable lean organizations. With fresh case studies and talks from renowned practitioners, this event will help you jump-start your entrepreneurial practice or hone an existing one–whether you work for a startup or a mature company. We're adding new speakers every week; check our website for the latest.
This year, for the first time, we're including a day of workshops and site visits on December 4. We’re really proud to present the workshops, and we have detailed information about them on our site. Stay tuned for info on the site visits. Please note that to participate in the workshops, you must register for a Gold or Platinum Pass.
Two days of lean startup is good but 5 days are even better. We're excited to partner this year with 500 Startups' Warm Gun Design/UX conference and Lean Startup Machine to offer you a Platinum Pass for five incredible days of learning and networking in San Francisco.
