Lean Innovation Bootcamp: A Techstars Startup Weekend (Gold Pass Holders)
*Times are subject to change as we continue to add programming
Put all that Lean Startup knowledge into practice at Startup Weekend. This is an immersive experience crafted for our conference where you’ll collaborate in teams to put the methodology directly into use to create your own lean startups, with the goal of launching an MVP in 54 hours. This weekend-long interactive program — for everyone from startup to enterprise level — offers attendees the chance to gain the full entrepreneurial experience by pitching ideas and building teams on Friday, experiencing hands-on mentorship and heads-down hacking on Saturday, and wrapping things up with investor-style presentations on Sunday.
We’ll kick the weekend off with a keynote talk from Jim Hornthal, Executive Chairman, GLIDR by Launchpad.
