After a huge year of Lean Startup Melbourne with all our events sold out, we come to the final one for the year. This will be the last meetup for 2013, so make sure you come along for the networking, the education, the beer and the pizza. Don't fret if you miss out though - we will be back bigger and better than ever in 2014.
Future Trends and Innovation in Melbourne Startups
The format of the night will be a number of Melbourne's best founders and entrepreneurs delivering a quick 5 minute lightning talk. The talk will be on a key future trend including product demonstrations, plus there will be plenty of opportunity for Q&A from the crowd.
We have already confirmed:
Lean Startup principles in manufacturing and the development of the TomCar. Steve has promised to have a car present on the night! Check them at www.tomcar.com.au
The Internet of Things and the Lifx Lightbulb. We will have one of the founders of Lifx present on the night, including a demonstration of their light bulb that is right now rolling off the production line. Lifx are a fantastic Melbourne success story, having raised over a million dollars on Kickstarter in under a week, as well as securing over $10 million in pre-sale orders.
We are confirming more speakers for the night, and we hope to cover Robotics, Health, Wearable Computing and 3D Printing. Stay tuned for more announcements closer to the night!
