From the event description:

Startup Lessons Learned is the first event designed to unite those interested in what it takes to succeed in building a lean startup. The goal for this event is to give practitioners and students of the lean startup methodology the opportunity to hear insights from leaders in embracing and deploying the core principles of the lean startup methodology. The day-long event will feature a mix of panels and talks focused on the key challenges and issues that technical and market-facing people at startups need to understand in order to succeed in building successful lean startups.

The conference is organized into three sections: building, measuring, and learning. Each section features a keynote speaker who will introduce then the topic and then be followed by three case studies and a panel discussion. See the complete conference schedule.

Speakers include top entrepreneurs such as:

  • Kent Beck, the author/co-author of Implementation Patterns, Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change 2nd Edition, Contributing to Eclipse, Test-Driven Development: By Example, Planning Extreme Programming, The Smalltalk Best Practice Patterns, and the JUnit Pocket Guide.
  • Steve Blank, serial entrepreneur who has been part of, or co-founded eight Silicon Valley startups. Steve currently teaches entrepreneurship at U.C. Berkeley Haas Business School, the joint Berkeley/Columbia MBA program, and at the Stanford University Graduate School of Engineering.
  • Sean Ellis, Founder and Principal, 12in6. Sean Ellis led marketing from launch through NASDAQ IPO filings at both LogMeIn and Uproar and later helped bring Xobni (Khosla Ventures, First Round Capital) to market as Interim VP Marketing. He is now founder and principal at 12in6 Inc., a firm that has helped startups such as Dropbox (Sequoia), Eventbrite (Sequoia) and Lookout (Khosla Ventures) transition to high growth companies.
  • And many more. See the full list of speakers.

This will be a great event that we’re really excited to be part of. It’s free, so just show up to the Varsity Theater and watch as much or as little as you’re able. There will be lots of great information presented that will really help you and your team.
