Dublin’s NDRC will be running a live, free simulcast of the US Startup Lessons Learned conference, which is taking place in San Francisco next Monday and will look at what it takes to build a lean start-up, as well as the issues facing digital start-ups.

NDRC is one of only 14 venues across Europe that has been chosen to run a simulcast of the conference, which will be led by Eric Ries, Harvard Business School’s entrepreneur-in-residence and founder of the lean startup methodology.

Other speakers will include Groupon’s vice-president, product, Suneel Gupta; personal computing pioneer Mitchell Kapor, the founder and former CEO of Lotus Development, who is now an active investor in seed-stage start-ups via Kapor Capital; Clara Shih, founder and CEO of the social media management platform Hearsay Social; and Drew Houston, co-founder and CEO of Dropbox.
