Editor’s note: This was an unsolicited post by Johanna Eiramo, one of our residents at the Minimum Viable Office, cross-posted from her blog. We need a fresh influx of new startups, so come join us!
Working at the MVO has a hidden advantage that is hard to sell. You’re here and opportunities materialize. Today, I can verify that this is very much the case.
I came to work, found a free desk, open my computer and in walks an old friend, Ismo Rantala of Nest New York fame. He was looking for Will Cardwell (in charge of strategic university partnerships for Aalto University) and Bruce Oreck (US Ambassador to Finland). I haven’t seen either of these two gentlemen in donkey’s years, so I follow Ismo to say Hi! On the way, I find out there’s a pitching session about to start at the Loft, with Will and Bruce doing the sparring. So I grab my computer and here is what I heard:
Our Minimum Viable Office co-working space is taking shape and we are ready to host events. One of the first ones to come to MVO will be the Lean Startup Machine workshop that has been run over 125 times in 40 cities worldwide.
It will take place on September 13th-15th at our co-working space. We all know or have heard of the “lean startup” concept, many of us even use the name in our everyday lives. However Lean Startup Machine workshop is aiming to make sure that you live by it and implement it into your daily startup lives.
