Lean Startup done by real founders.

Do you read startup blogs and books like “Lean Startup” and are left with nothing but a bunch of new buzzwords and this weird feeling of “now what?”

Are you drowning in options where to take your startup? Do you feel like your product is missing its big opportunity?

Well… Welcome to the club! You are not alone. We have all been there.

This is why we started Leancamp.

Since 2010 the goal of Leancamp has been to exchange knowledge between people, who actually practice lean methodologies and who made them work for them.

You’ll get actionable feedback on your current challenges and learn  from a variety of disciplines and real-life stories.

Skip the theory and consulting fairytale. We are shooting for practical advice and actionable bits that help you in your daily work.

Leancamp is a multi-track, open space event. You get a say in the agenda, help choosing topics covered and will share your own expertise.
Don’t be shy – suggest a session – everyone is an expert in something.
