Lean Startup Drill is an exclusive pre-LEAP Summit intensive 24 hours training where you will learn to apply Lean Startup tools in a structured way.

Date: 10th of May at 16:00 PM – 11th of May 16:00 PM

Place: Zagreb, Croatia

During Lean Startup Drill, you will learn how to save resources spent on building products nobody wants, and focus on building something people want. And have fun on the way!

It is helpful for all of you who:

  • know that there is a problem which needs a solution, but don’t know where to start;
  • are afraid to start or already started but failed, and;
  • for those who don’t have the idea at the moment, but are curious and enthusiastic about entrepreneurship.

You might have heard about Lean Startup methodology based on the Build-Measure-Learn principle, well known from the Lean Startup initiated by Eric Ries? Do you know how to apply it? Why problem hypotheses are important and how to correctly define them? Do you know who are your early adopters, why they matter and how to find them? Have you heard about the customer development methodology? Do you know how to manage a customer development process? What is the difference between qualitative and quantitative customer experiments and how do you measure their success? How can you tell the difference between correct and incorrect customer interviews and why does that matter? Is the product you have been developing for the last 6 months an MVP? Would it be better to use the Concierge or The Wizard of Oz method?

After 24 hours of Lean Startup Drill, you will master all of the above skills and feel ready to apply it to every future idea, project or startup!

The main value every participant has to get is to learn how to test ideas and how to fit their product into customers’ expectations so one can reach product/market fit as an ultimate goal.


Lean Startup Drill methodology pushes you to gather more insights on customers and their problems, needs and wishes using well prepared offline and online experiments executed in a tight time-frame within a team. You are encouraged to experiment until you reach a status of problem/solution fit; in other words, when customers validate your problem solution as a product they will actually pay for.
