I must say that I was very surprised when I was asked to speak at the Michigan Lean Startup Conference on May 17th.
The lineup includes some awesome speakers and Lean Startup / customer development experts: Steve Blank, Ash Maurya, Dan Martell, Brant Cooper, Patrick Vlaskovits, Dave Feinleib and Noah Kagan. And me…
What the hell am I going to talk about?
Honestly, I’m not sure. But I think I’ll end up focusing on Year One Labs and the experience of running a lean accelerator. I don’t think any of the other speakers have run an accelerator (yet!) so it gives me the chance to speak about something a bit different and take a different perspective on things.
According to Dan Martell, he had a fantastic time last year at the event, so I’m very much looking forward to it. I’m looking forward to learning a ton from some great entrepreneurs and meeting new people.
The conference is a 2-day event – with the main speaking portion on May 17th and a day-long workshop on the 18th. I’ll be there on the 18th as well for the workshop by Ash, Brant and Patrick (although not in any formal capacity, just hanging out, helping out where I can.)
If you’re planning on going to the event let me know. Now to dust off my Keynote skills…
