Running Lean Workshop
Learn How-to Apply Lean Startup Techniques to your Product and Raise Your Odds of Success
Most products fail. Not because they fail to launch what they set out to build, but because they waste time building the wrong product.
At the workshop, you'll learn a systematic methodology that raises your odds of buiding successful products.
Running Lean was developed through rigorous testing of Lean Startup, Customer Development, and Bootstrapping techniques, and has been successfully applied to dozens of products ranging from b2c, enterprise, clean tech, and no tech products.

Presenter: Ash Maurya, founder of Spark59, author of Running Lean
Ash Maurya (@ashmaurya) is praised for offering some of the best and most practical advice out there for entrepreneurs. He challenges the notion that start-ups should plan based on gut, intuition and luck. Instead he applies a systematic process for rigorously stress testing your “Plan A” until you achieve a plan that works.
Since bootstrapping his last company seven years ago, he has launched several products and one peer-to-web application framework. He has been rigorously applying customer development and lean start-up techniques to his products, which he frequently writes about on his blog (www.ashmaurya.com).
“Fantastic real world insights from Ash. Brought together some great concepts I have been studying into a simple implementable process without being too rigid or promising silver bullets." - Andrew Kemp
“This workshop finally pieced together all the steps to go from idea to market and beyond. Ash was an excellent speaker and really wanted to get his message delivered.”
