For people working to create awesome companies & products

Leanconf is a 3-day event for entrepreneurs, startups, innovators, product managers and people working to create awesome companies.

You'll leave the event inspired, with valuable contacts and the knowledge to grow and succeed in this fast changing landscape.

I can’t recommend #Leanconf enough, and I honestly think its the best event I’ve been to in recent years.
