Lean Machine Shanghai

I signed up today for Techyizu’s Lean Startup Machine Shanghai at the 12pm noon mark.

From what I’ve heard, it seems like there has been so much hype about the event that it caused the Techyizu people to switch it to an application style procedure. Sadly this means I could still miss it but on the plus side it’ll likely be a better event and get people super motivated to attend. Fingers crossed that they’ll be sending out final confirmation soon.

I’m excited for the Lean Startup event which goes Friday – Sunday at the end of this month. It is one of the first such events to be held in Shanghai.

One of the questions on the application was whether I was prepared with a project I’d be submitting for Lean. I put yes with the idea that I could either focus on Shanghai Teachers, Groopti, Fantasy Book Club, or perhaps some spunky tech thing that crosses my mind in the next couple of weeks.

We’ll see. Still need to wait for the confirmation… come on baby.

Coming soon to Shanghai // Lean Machine

Here is a quick picture of of the Warmup last Thursday.

It was in preparation of a weekend-long machup / convention / live-world-experiment around the concept of lean startup. It will be hosted the end of this month by our very own Techyizu in partnership with the usual suspects probably (Technode, Baidu, Microsoft, etc). All the Gents from Techyizu seem really excited and are looking forward to a massive turnout. I heard an expected reserved-out time is 1-2hrs from the time it is officially announced. This is in line with the 3 hrs the last event went at, and the one before, several hours more.

Methinks they will need to start booking more space eventually but I like how they’re working it, smaller size turnout (under 400 ppl)  for better effect while Techyizu is still in its early stages. All you Shanghai tech enthusiasts and entrepreneurs better be glued to your email. Trying to reserve in advance was impossible (unless you’re on the technical planning committee or are speaking).  Want to join the technical planning though you’re welcome to b/c its an open meeting on Saturdays at 12pm.

See you all at Lean Machine June 29 – July 1.
