Eric Ries coming back to Vancouver on March 3

Eric Ries, creator of the Lean Startup Methodology is no stranger to Vancouver. He dropped by Bootup Labs in April ’09, met with the startups and showed off his lean mug.

Last year, Eric’s Startup Lessons Learned Conference was happening in San Francisco on April 23rd, 2010.  Troy Angrignon and Bootup teamed up to host the simulcast conference live in our Gastown digs.  More than 5o entrepreneurs and developers signed up to attend the simulcast.

And now, BCTIA is bringing Eric to back BC with stopovers in Kelowna, Victoria and ending his tour in Vancouver on March 3rd.  Using examples drawn from his own experiences in Silicon Valley, Eric will guide you through key areas proven to increase the success and creativity of your innovation and tech company from business strategy, product, engineering, QA, marketing and delivery.

All registrants will also receive a free copy of Eric’s new book “The Lean Startup”.

Don’t miss your opportunity to hear him speak. Register here.
