Lean Startup Machine (LSM) wants to prevent the world’s smartest people from wasting time building things that nobody wants. LSM is an intensive three-day workshop where entrepreneurs and innovators learn how to build what their customers want using customer development techniques and Lean Startup principles to validate an idea for a new product or service.

Women 2.0 and Lean Startup Machine (LSM) have partnered up to offer two (2) free tickets to LSM Montreal taking place July 13-15, 2012. To enter, all you have to do is tweet or retweet:

The three-day workshop runs from July 13-15, 2012 and will offer local innovators the chance to vet their ideas with some big names in the startup world. To date, LSM has run 23 workshops in 15 cities globally, from San Francisco, to London and the Middle East.

Two of several speakers and mentors participating in the inaugural LSM Montreal will be Alistair Croll of Solve For Interesting and Anastasia Valentine of SandboxPM. Past mentors of LSM include Dan Martell of Flowtown, Charlie O’Donnel of First Round Capital, Tom Eisenman of Harvard Business School and Kelly Boyd of Think Experience – just to name a few.

Throughout the weekend, participants will go through the process of generating and presenting a minimum viable product with mentorship and feedback from leaders in the industry and other entrepreneurs. Participants come from diverse backgrounds – from serial innovators to students, to those who are just simply interested in entrepreneurship.

A limited number of early bird registrants get $100 off while quantities last. To register, click here. This event will sell out as there is a limited amount of tickets available.
