Lean Startup Machine (LSM) is an event where business players and innovators come together in order to validate their venture-concepts, using Lean Startup principles. Throughout the weekend, participants will join intensive workshops – that aim to shed light on their product testing capabilities. Attendees will be coached by the Lean Startup Machine team and work together with local VCs, angel investors, successful entrepreneurs as well as enterprise product managers.
As the biggest risk in starting a new business is not to be able to capture customers’ attention, LSM teaches innovators how to build something people want. Through six workshops and four speakers’ presentations, participants gain knowledge about the process of reviewing business ideas. The educational workshops have a strict curriculum, designed to challenge both, the experienced and inexperienced entrepreneurs.

LSM was started by Trevor Owens in 2010, when he realised there was a smarter way to build businesses. The author Eric Ries made the Lean Startup methodology and movement popular. It is based on the latest research in Customer Development, Agile Development, and Lean Manufacturing. The methodology can save entrepreneurs time and money, as they learn to discover if their products will succeed, before going to the market and waste effort.
Lean Startup Machine is in sum more expensive than most startup events, because it is more complex to produce and is limited to a smaller audience. Most of the workshops have a capacity of 50 participants to foster an intimate learning environment. General admission in Vienna is 200 euros.
Don’t miss your chance to test multiple business concepts, identify the one with the most potential, and even collect 4,500 dollars from customers. Participants from diverse backgrounds are all welcome.
