Lean Startup Machine has been unlocked for Vienna

The biggest risk in starting a business is not being able to acquire customers. LSM is a 3-day workshop that teaches you how to build something customers want and run the right experiments to steer your business in the right direction.

"It's an intensive three-day workshop which teaches entrepreneurs and innovators how to build disruptive products."

How it works
The workshop kicks off with a series of product pitches that help attendees organize into teams. Everyone works on a NEW idea. Each team then develops its problem hypothesis, solution hypothesis and a series of assumptions which are core to the success of the business.

"Get out of the building"
Next, each team creates an MVP, or "Minimum Viable Product." The goal of the MVP test is to "Get Out Of the Building," speak with real customers and to collect cash or non-cash currency which serves as validation.

The process promotes a problem-centric approach to business ideation. By continuously validating and invalidating assumptions, teams are forced to pivot their solution (and even problem) toward a true customer pain; rather than creating a solution and after-the-fact seeking customers with a problem.

"Fail Fast. Succeed Faster."
The event culminates with each team pitching its new solutions and its experience using the process. In this competition the winning team is not selected based on who has the best idea, but instead on which team honors the process and gains the most insights through its pivots.
