Lean Startup Machine is a weekend workshop for aspiring entrepreneurs. It was born out of the successful management process employed and documented in a book by Eric Ries, while he was an advisor to the venture capital firm, Kleiner Perkins, and Chief Technology Officer at IMVU, one of Silicon Valley’s most successful startups.
