Building your own community and network is never easy!

At this event we have Community Builder, Charmaine Ho who will share her experiences in growing the Lean Startup movement in London and how it culminated in the London Lean Startup Summit  earlier this year!

Charmaine Ho is a Community Builder who works with youth, academic partners, startups and those interested in innovation training to help them gain a better understanding of the Lean Startup movement.

She started her Lean Startup journey as a volunteer at the first Lean Startup Summit in London in 2015.  Her main role was volunteer coordinating and social media marketing.

Since then, she was recruited as a Production Manager for the London Lean Startup Summit 2016 and now the Community Manager for the flagship event Lean Startup Week.

In her spare time, she also started her first MVP in London and ran Social Enterprise Experience Tour where social businesses are featured via a walking tour.  The purpose of the project is to build a social impact portal which promotes the importance of collaboration.

Charmaine’s presentation will focus on MVP, The London Lean Startup Summit and provide an insights into the internal structure of The Lean Startup Co – which is also a startup.

Charmaine is keen to share why this year’s Lean Startup Week will be the best one ever! www.leanstartup.co/2017-conference

We look forward to introducing Charmaine to the community and the opportunity for further discussion on building communities.
