Leanconf...the other Lean Startup conference - Exclusive all video access


Some of you may, or may not know, I organise a Lean Startup conference…

It's actually the only one in Europe :)

The last Leanconf was held in November 2014 and we shared so many great stories and lessons. I'm giving you first access to all the talks (unless you attended, you already have them).

I thought I would share my recommendations to help guide you through.


If you only have time to watch 2 videos…

  • Call To Action - The truly brilliant Janice Fraser (@clevergirl) gives an engaging, inspiring and entertaining talk. Watch to the end for a very touching moment.

  • I Know This Great Little Place - This is for founders. Rossa tells a great story about starting the business. Very inspiring talk on how they proved various hypothesis in a series of simple MVPs. Testing the most basic of assumptions with a Facebook page, building an audience and learning quickly. True disruption of an existing market!
