Our Lean Coffee events are a great way to connect with other entrepreneurs, at various stages. The way this event is run helps to facilitate good connections and knowledge sharing in relation to starting and growing a business.

The topics we discuss are co-created by the participants, so it's relevant to whoever attends. This way, it doesn't matter what stage you're at, you'll get something interesting out of the session.

How does Lean Coffee work?

Lean Coffee is a structured but agenda-less meeting style. Each person gets an opportunity to put forward a problem or topic they'd like to discuss. Three topics are selected by vote, and everyone gets the opportunity to contribute.

There are dozens of Lean Coffee meetups happening across the world in places like Seattle, San Francisco, Toronto, Stockholm, Edinburgh, Brighton & Sydney.

Who is Lean Coffee for?

Aspiring entrepreneurs, startup founders, creatives and anyone else interested in starting and growing a business.

The aim of the morning is to connect, share knowledge and help each other do better through the force of the community.
