About the event

Startups are not small versions of big companies. Yet for the last 30 years, we have tried to apply the management practices used in big companies to the process of developing new products and services. Finally today, we have a new form of management. Learn the principles of the Lean process from the author of The Lean Enterprise and creator of the international phenomenon, Lean Startup Machine.

Join us for our next Fireside chat with Trevor Owens - CEO & (co)founder of Lean Venture Partners, hosted by Florian Bohnert - Head of Global Partnerships at Mobike and Startup-Grind-Rockstar. Learn how your Startup can get monthly revenues up from $0 to $5,000 in Eight Weeks, about the dark art of raising money, and how large corporations can innovate like startups.

About Lean Venture Partners

Lean Venture Partners offers an eight weeks pre-Accelerator program. It is an intensive program to validate your market, launch MVPs, and generate revenue. The program is a combined effort of Lean Venture partners and Chinaccelerator.

The hardest part of building a startup is the first mile. Focusing on early revenue can dramatically increase the odds a startup will succeed; it gives your team a clear goal to achieve and the cash you may need to survive in the future.
