Day 16: Startupfest Lean Workshop

May 6, 2013 at 8:58 pm

Every summer, over a thousand founders, analysts, investors, and entrepreneurs gather in Montreal for Startupfest, a sprawling week of events around launching new companies. Our friend and Mentor, Alistair Croll, helps put together the content for the event from elevator pitches in an actual elevator, to post-conference fireworks over the St. Lawrence River, to impromptu Q&A sessions with startup legends, to Montreal’s infamous nightlife.

Here’s a brief video of last year’s mayhem:

This year, Alistair and Ben Yoskovitz, authors of Lean Analytics, have teamed up with Brant Cooper and Patrick Vlaskovits, authors of the best-selling Lean Entrepreneur, to put on a one-day workshop immediately before Startupfest. Tickets are $90 if you’re also attending Startupfest, and $195 if you’re just coming for the workshop. The first 100 people to buy a ticket also get signed copies of Lean Analytics and The Lean Entrepreneur.

Marc Andreesen said “Markets that don’t exist don’t care how smart you are.” Whether you’re a startup founder trying to disrupt an industry, or an intrapreneur trying to provoke change from within, your biggest risk is building something nobody wants. This day-long workshop, happening in Montreal on July 10, will show you how to fix that.

Those of you looking for one hell of a learning experience, should continue to read more about the event here.
