Event Details

Der Livestream der Lean Startup Konferenz aus San Francisco in Karlsruhe!


On December 3, the biggest names in the Lean Startup world and a slew of entrepreneurs will gather at The Lean Startup Conference in San Francisco. "Lean Startup Meetup Karlsruhe" was named the official simulcast partner for Karlsruhe and will stream the entire single-track event at the University for Applied Sciences in Karlsruhe, free of charge. Join us to watch, learn and discuss how to be more innovative, use people’s time better, and be more successful.

Whether you’re new to Lean Startup methods or have been putting these practices to use in your organization, this event promises to educate and inform. The Lean Startup Conference brings together innovators from startups, Fortune 500 companies, government agencies and non-profit organizations to share lessons for building profitable lean organizations. More than 30 entrepreneurs will speak about their first-hand experiences, with keynotes including:

  • Marc Andreessen, co-founder and general partner at Andreessen Horowitz
  • Steve Blank, serial entrepreneur, author, lecturer at Stanford
  • Beth Comstock, chief marketing officer at GE
  • Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup

While knowledge about the new science of entrepreneurship has gone global, startup ecosystems are always local. Come to the University of Applied Sciences in Karlsruhe at 5pm to meet fellow Karlsruhe entrepreneurs interested in creating and managing successful startups.

Massive conference update



 The main day of the conference, December 3, includes more than 30 speakers. Some of them are entrepreneurship superstars like Steve Blank, Marc Andreessen, Drew Houston, Leah Busque, Scott Cook and Dave Binetti. Others are new voices in putting Lean Startup techniques to use and have great case studies to share. They include people like GE SVP and CMO Beth Comstock on bringing Lean Startup to a massive corporation. And Red Room founder/CEO Ivory Madison on popular metrics that everyone should stop using. And Sincerely’s Matt Brezina on the secrets of developing mobile apps quickly. And Tendai Charisika on creative ways to get out of the building. And LitMotors’ Danny Kim on the importance of testing the market before testing the technology—for a new kind of car. (By the way, Danny’s bringing a prototype of the vehicle right into the conference ballroom.)


 Once Monday’s talks have inspired your startup spirit, you can go straight to the source and visit some of the hottest young companies in San Francisco. On Tuesday, December 4, Gold and Platinum Pass holders can visit the headquarters of several of San Francisco’s hottest young companies—Airbnb, Rally, Sharethrough, Twilio. You’ll see the physical spaces of innovation, get a feel for what makes the teams there tick, and meet up with other entrepreneurs looking to create something new and big.
