Lean Startup Machine’s Startup Competition is This Weekend! (San Francisco Event)

[13/Jan/2011 Update: The event is completely sold out! But don’t despair. Like them on Facebook to get in first on the next one!]

Lean Startup Machine is a weekend-long startup competition conforming to Lean Startup principles, a method of using customer feedback to rapidly iterate your product to reach product/market fit. It’s sort of a CustDev-athon where participants get out of the building and put together a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) over a weekend.
