Big news! We’ve got a date and venue for The Lean Startup Conference: December 3 - 4, 2012 at the InterContinental San Francisco. We’ll open registration in a couple of weeks and if you’d like to be the first to know when tickets go on sale--along with a shot at the lowest ticket price--we encourage you to sign up here for our short, friendly emails.
Note that this year's conference will be part of a multi-day series of activities, including workshops and more. If you're making plans to come from out of town, we recommend you plan to come for the weekend, too.
Some quick notes about the folks working on the conference.
First, the the larger venue this year is made possible by New Context, which is producing the conference. New Context is a consulting firm that helps companies and organizations develop software using lean principles. To support the lean startup community and help us share ideas, they’re getting behind this event in a serious way. Although Eric is a general partner in New Context, we’re observing a separation of church and state for the conference: you won’t see any on-stage ads from New Context, and while the firm may have clients with useful case studies or advice, New Context itself isn’t involved in deciding who speaks at the show.
That brings us to who is responsible for the program: Eric and Sarah, this year’s co-hosts. If you’re here, we assume you know Eric. :) Some of you may know Sarah from the Web 2.0 conferences, for which she was recently co-chair and general manager. She also pulled together last year’s successful Ignite: Lean Startup in SF, and she’s done some other stuff that you may have run across, too.
We’re actively working on the program now, and we’ll talk more soon about our process for finding speakers. Meantime, please sign up below to receive conference email and be among those with access to our special first-mover rates.
