Lean Startup Machine, Intensive Entrepreneur Workshop, Coming to Beijing THIS WEEKEND

The #1 reason why startups fail is because they build products that no one wants. Lean Startup Machine is a competitive three-day workshop where attendees will learn how to apply Lean Startup methods in the real world. The Lean Startup methodology has been known to save entrepreneurs significant time that would otherwise be wasted.

Co-Founder, Trevor Owens explains, “Lean Startup philosophy takes a whole different perspective on starting new businesses. It basically says that everything traditionally being taught about entrepreneurship is completely wrong and there’s a much better, scientific way to do things.”

This event is not about coding — but learning to build things that people want. The hands-on approach will help entrepreneurs avoid pitfalls by teaching them to build things that customers will actually buy. According to TEDxChina Executive Director, Lawrence Wang, “Attendees will have many opportunities to learn, lead, and be challenged. It is also a wonderful experience being a part of helping them.” Participants will hear inspiring speeches and get advice from some of the startup community’s brightest minds.

Participants of past LSM workshops share what they have learned. “LSM weekend enables us to validate our assumptions and business idea over three days and create something that is truly what the market needs and wants. At the same time you get to know and work with friends from overseas that were totally dynamic, passionate and focused on learning and making a product.”

The goal of the workshop is not simply to create the winning team, but to enable participants to go through the process of generating and presenting a minimum viable product with mentorship and feedback from thought leaders in the industry. Participants from diverse backgrounds are all welcome! Serial innovators, students, designers, and business entrepreneurs alike are invited.

Some perks for attendance includes:
