Lean Startup Machine was recently mentioned in The New York Times.

Lean Startup Machine is a learning-intensive bootcamp where entrepreneurs and startup teams are taught how to identify key customers and iterate their products through a framework of Lean Startup tools and techniques. It's a no-hack-until-you-got-a customer-weekend which is focused on validating the market rather than building the product.

This is how the weekend will lay out:
  • Thursday evening you show up, have some pizza and drinks with other participants. Bring an idea to pitch so you get others to work with you OR bring your existing startup team (team discounts available) and work on what you are doing now! We will do some fun ice-breakers and you will get to know 50% of the participants in just the first night.
  • Friday evening you come back with and get rolling on documenting your assumptions and creating tests. A couple speakers will present to lay the foundation for the methodologies you’ll be using over the weekend. Ideally you’ll get out of the building and run your first test before the evening closes.
  • Saturday you’ll likely realize most of your assumptions are WRONG, so you will iterate at a crazy speed creating and validating new assumptions. You will generate a Minimum Viable Product, most likely a landing page to test the market and iterate until you will find the right market for your idea.
  • At last, Sunday afternoon you will present your learnings to the other teams and to a jury, this is not just a learning exercise, you will compete with the other teams and try to win against the others.

You will get the TOP brains in this space thinking about your idea, sharing insights into your market, helping tweak your messaging, looking at at working on your UX and even your code in just 48 hours. ONE HOUR of consulting with anyone of these people would be more than the price of admission!
