Innovation Ohio, TechGROWTH Ohio to simulcast startup conference Dec. 3

ATHENS, Ohio (Dec. 3, 2012)—On December 3, the biggest names in the Lean Startup world and a slew of entrepreneurs will gather at The Lean Startup Conference in San Francisco. Innovation Ohio and TechGROWTH Ohio were named the official simulcast partners for Central and Southeast Ohio and will stream the entire single-track event at The Innovation Center, at 340 W. State Street, in Athens, free of charge. Join us to watch, learn and discuss how to be more innovative, use people’s time better, and be more successful.

Whether you’re new to Lean Startup methods or have been putting these practices to use in your organization, this event promises to educate and inform. The Lean Startup Conference brings together innovators from startups, Fortune 500 companies, government agencies and non-profit organizations to share lessons for building profitable lean organizations. More than 30 entrepreneurs will speak about their first-hand experiences, with keynotes including:

•    Marc Andreessen, co-founder and general partner at Andreessen Horowitz
•    Steve Blank, serial entrepreneur, author, lecturer at Stanford
•    Beth Comstock, chief marketing officer at GE
•    Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup

While knowledge about the new science of entrepreneurship has gone global, startup ecosystems are always local. Come to The Innovation Center at noon to meet fellow Athens entrepreneurs interested in creating and managing successful startups.
