Lean Startup Conference 2019 — Call for Sponsors

Partner with The Lean Startup Co.

As planning continues for this year’s flagship conference in San Francisco, we’re looking for diverse partners to bring their energy and expertise to the Palace of Fine Arts on October 23–25. Not only is this a great chance to share your story with thousands of people both live and virtually from around the globe (hailing from enterprise, government, startup, and non-profit organizations) but you’ll have plenty of opportunities to connect with your fellow practitioners in the Lean Startup community for your own enrichment.

Alongside teams from Google, General Assembly, Y Combinator, Zappos, and GE, we’ve demonstrated that a commitment to building sustainable companies through experimentation and growth is more than just an idea—it’s a necessity. Salesforce, Adobe, Intuit and IBM, among others, have worked with us at previous conferences and you can take advantage of the benefits of a partnership with The Lean Startup Co. In San Francisco, you’ll have a chance to reach a unique audience brought together by the global movement founded by Eric Ries that has helped so many companies not just survive, but thrive.

Elevate Your Presence

You can be a part of unique activities and educational events ranging from workshops to fireside chats, special interest breakfasts and networking events. Original content co-produced with Lean Startup Co., like blog posts, webcasts and podcasts, will help elevate your presence at the conference and reach another 300,000 potential customers who follow our social channels.

Let’s Connect Soon

If you’re interested in partnering with us this year, you can learn more on our Sponsors and Partners page, or submit your info here and our Partnerships Manager, Jazmin Cornejo, will be in touch.

Can’t sponsor but interested in attending? Register soon to secure your spot at the Early Bird rate. Prices increase after April 30.

Testimonials from Our Partners

“We worked closely with the Lean Startup team to host a sponsored lunch for attendees. They helped us get the right folks in the room and worked with us to craft an experience that reflected an inclusive nature that exceeded our goals. From the food and service to the beautiful room and killer view, we were able to have engaging conversations in an intimate atmosphere. What a first class experience!” Sr. Manager of Innovation and Experiential Design (Intuit)

“By attending the Lean Startup Conference, our team was able to get first-hand, unparalleled knowledge and experience from the best of the best startup founders and innovators. We left with ideas and tools that showed us both the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ to fail fast, scale a business and move quickly on innovation ideas.” Mnisi Pleasure, Manager, Business Optimism, Exxaro, South Africa
