Lean Start Up Weekends

Toronto’s about to get a little leaner! We at #DevTO are happy to welcome a new bi-weekly meet up for entrepreneurs in Toronto. Lean Startup Weekends aims to help you get your idea out there and make money—all in one weekend!

These events are not limited to just developers; marketers, strategists and designers are all welcome to join in these high-intensity weekends.

If you’re interested, check out their meet up group and RSVP for their inaugural weekend event! If you can’t make this weekend, follow through Twitter with the hashtag ‘#leanweekends’.

Take a gander at their bio:

So do you want to start a company and make money? 

This is how we do it: Saturday morning we all share our amazing startup ideas, we vote for the best ones and form teams around them. From here we get out of building, ask potential customers, invalidate those amazing ideas, cross-validate ideas between teams, and pivot until we find something that actual clients will pay money for. 

We deliver the Minimum Viable Product to our customers and get them to pay for it all by end of Sunday. Devs, marketers, strategists and designers, all are welcome.

Find out more through our meetup page and check out #leanweekends
