Office Hours

Hugely popular at past Lean Startup Conferences, our Office Hours sessions give you a chance to talk one-on-one with speakers and mentors. We bring in dozens of experts so you can get targeted advice on everything from analytics and user research to corporate innovation and social-sector funding. Office Hours appointments are available to Platinum and Gold Passholders. Close to the conference, we’ll send you email with info about signing up for these sessions.

Office Hours are for Platinum and Gold Passholders who want informed feedback on your business ideas and startup challenges. Our mentors have super-useful expertise in a range of topics. 

Here’s what attendees said about these sessions at previous Lean Startup Conferences:

“The willingness of people to talk to me who have been thinking deeply about these ideas was amazing. Getting their time was invaluable.”

“The format overcame the problem of approaching smart strangers and made it easier to connect.”

“One of the mentor conversations I had was so valuable, it alone was worth the price of admission to the whole conference.”
