Lean Startup Machine, the traveling conference based on Eric Ries’s book for aspiring entrepreneurs, “The Lean Startup,” is coming to Philadelphia next week.

The three day event starts next Friday, March 30th at 6 pm and will offer local innovators the chance to vet their ideas with some big names in the startup world.

Throughout the weekend participants will go through the process of generating and presenting a minimum viable product with mentorship and feedback from leaders in the industry and other entrepreneurs along the way.

The long list of speakers includes Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and Lean Startup creator Eric Ries via Skype. Here’s the rest of the line-up, from a press release:

  • Bob Moul, CEO of appRenaissance, 2011 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year finalist, and President of Philly Startup Leaders
  • Dan Freeman, Faculty Director of the Entrepreneurial Studies Program at the University of Delaware
  • Brad Oyler, Founder of W3Portals and organizer of Philly’s StartupDigest & StartupWeekend
  • Gloria Bell, Operations Manager/Social Media Strategist at O3 World, and a leader of Philly Startup Leaders and Social Media Club Philadelphia

  • André Dhondt, Executive/Agile Coach and Trainer and organizer of local meetup groups
  • Jake Stein, Co-founder of RJMetrics
  • Audrey Troutt, Goodwin College at Drexel University

On the final day, participants will present their product to a jury and compete to win additional mentorship for the development of their product.
