If you’re thinking of heading over to Lean Startup Machine Johannesburg (LSM) at the end of this month, there’s a good reason not to go alone. The team behind it have just opened up a buy-one-get-one-free ticket offer which makes the asking price of entry a lot more palatable.

LSM is a three day series of workshops which extols the virtues laid down by author Eric Ries in his book, The Lean Startup. There’s an element of hackathon about it, in that attendees learn through practice by forming small groups on the first day and pitching business ideas with a view to coming up with a minimum viable product by the of play on the Sunday.

If you’re planning on coming in a group with either a friend, colleague or anyone else, you can buy two tickets and get one free, or buy three and get two free.

You must include this Promotional Code “flashfree” when buying the tickets to make sure you get the offer. It’s not cheap, mind, at R1 800 for the three days, but there will be prizes to help the best business ideas of the weekend get off the ground.

Lean Startup Machine Johannesburg runs from 31st October to 2nd November at JoziHub in Milpark. You can buy your tickets from the event’s website.
