Lean Startup Summit

Called Europe’s “best two-day training for innovation teams,” Lean Startup Summit gathers experts, authors, founders, intrapreneurs and C-level leaders in one place to exchange the latest innovation and transformation methods, share best practices from their companies and learn from each other in interactive formats like keynotes, workshops, roundtable discussions and mentoring sessions.

The learnings you come away with happen on all levels, from the inspirational to the personal. Lean Startup Summit attracts a diverse audience from countries across Europe and beyond.
