Help Bring Lean Startup Machine to Dallas

Let’s bring Lean Startup Machine to Dallas!

LSM is a hands-on workshop that helps entrepreneurs follow Lean Startup principles to test and validate their startup ideas. They’ve ran their program in cities all over the world and have helped many a startup get off the ground.

From their website:

Lean Startup Machine is NOT a hackathon.

It’s an intensive three-day workshop which teaches entrepreneurs and innovators how to build disruptive products.

How It Works

The workshop kicks off with a series of product pitches that help attendees organize into teams. Everyone works on a NEW idea. Each team then develops its problem hypothesis, solution hypothesis and a series of assumptions which are core to the success of the business.

Next, each team creates an MVP, or “Minimum Viable Product.” The goal of the MVP test is to “Get Out Of the Building,” speak with real customers and to collect cash or non-cash currency which serves as validation.

The process promotes a problem-centric approach to business ideation. By continuously validating and invalidating assumptions, teams are forced to pivot their solution (and even problem) toward a true customer pain; rather than creating a solution and after-the-fact seeking customers with a problem.

The event culminates with each team pitching its new solutions and its experience using the process. In this competition the winning team is not selected based on who has the best idea, but instead on which team honors the process and gains the most insights through its pivots.

We only need about 100 more people to express their interest in order to get the ball rolling with a Dallas workshop!
