Now in its third year, The Lean Startup Conference (formerly called SLLCONF) is returning to San Francisco next month with a mission to bring together innovators from startups and established companies to share lessons for building profitable lean organizations. Designed “by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs,” the conference is presented by New Context and co-hosted by Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup, and Sarah Milstein.

Event organizers are again offering the conference for simulcast to community groups around the world. The simulcasts are important community-building opportunities and StartupCity Des Moines is pleased to serve as a host site this year, live streaming the conference for free at our offices for a limited number of participants.

The Lean Startup Conference promises to be long on case studies and how-to, and short on propaganda and exhortation. Join us Dec. 3, from 11 am until 8 pm, to hear from a slate of top speakers sharing real-world lean startup stories and implementation advice. To claim a seat for the Des Moines simulcast, register today. Feel free to share the information with others in the community.
