What we're about

Lean Startup Circle is dedicated to applying lean startup thinking and building lean startup leadership.

We bring the San Francisco lean startup community together in a variety of formats (many of which involve beer) to learn from each other.

What works? What doesn't? Is lean just a buzzword? Or can it really help build businesses?

Wasn't this called the Lean Startup Circle Unconference previously? *** Yes! Historically, this event was known as the Lean Startup Circle Unconference. In order to broaden the conversation and diversify the attendee base, we've decided to not merely focus the event on startups or exclusively on the topic of The Lean Startup, a popular business book that spearheaded a large movement in the world of business and product development. *** I can't make this event, how can I get on your mailing list? *** Sign up here: http://bit.ly/tpiu-email *** Tickets *** Buy tickets here: http://bit.ly/2MmqglO
