Announcing LeanUXMachine Weekend – Aug 4th-6th
So, you have that great startup idea that you have been working on. Since this is Israel, good chances are that you are an ex-intelligence guy, an engineer or a product person. But there is that *thing* missing. That magic component that you know facebook, twitter, waze and other apps have.
You aren’t alone. Israel has historically been awesome in developing the deepest technologies, the most scalable products & recently been very good at driving traffic (did you know 30 of the top-100 affiliates are Israeli?? I learned that today). But… User Experience hasn’t been, well, it.
So, the bunch of guys & gals we are, we wanted to make a difference. How about your team comes in for a weekend, work with top UX mentors on a concept, idea or an early stage product and come out with a workable concept that will make your product shine?
We want startup teams who meet the following criteria:
- Early stage
- No commitment to customers that affect the product
- At least 3 team functions need to attend: a founder, a product definition person, and a programmer. That’s probably 2-3 persons.
- Open to learning about UX
- Have a basic idea for their startup
- The startup idea is a product for consumers
Non-requirements (things you do not need to have by the time you apply):
- A design of your product
- A registered company
We are fortunate to have a kickass team work with you. Johanna Kollmann will be flying in from London, UK & Daniel Szuc from Hong Kong, China. They will be joined by an awesome team of UX mentors from Google, mySupermarket, HP & IBM.
The amazing thing (kudos to Tomer Sharon who will both be mentoring & organizing) is that the event is fully volunteer based. We are covering the cost of flights for Johanna & Daniel and need to make sure participants are fed throughout the 3 days, but other than that, that’s it. This is why we were able to keep this at 650 NIS for something that is… well, just not available in Israel otherwise.
