Originally started in the US, Lean Startup Machine is a three-day workshop for startups (including tech startups, of course) independently hosted in cities all over the world. It’s a place for entrepreneurs get to pitch their startups and learn more about validating business ideas through hands-on experimentation and mentorship 

And now Joburgers can sign up to bring Lean Startup Machine to the City of Gold.

Lean Startup Machine’s South African debut took place in Cape Town in May this year. For the event to be hosted in a particular city, enough votes have be to be cast on the city’s Lean Startup Machine page. So far, over 500 votes have been put forward to bring the event to Johannesburg from 31st October to 2nd November.

Preparations are currently in place and the organisers are looking for sponsors, media partners, mentors and speakers – anyone is welcome to apply or suggest partners.

You can vote in support of Lean Startup Johannesburg here.
