The Lean Startup Conference takes place Monday and Tuesday in San Francisco, but a trip to the Bay Area isn't a prerequisite for a prime seat to view the event.

In six cities across the Silicon Prairie, Lean Startup enthusiasts are hosting official parties to watch a live stream of the event. 

The Lean Startup Conference, which as billed by its organizers as an event that "brings together innovators from startups and established companies alike to share lessons for building profitable lean organizations," touts a speaker lineup filled with notable entrepreneurs and innovators. The list includes Marc Andreesen, co-founder of Andreesen HorowitzEric Ries, author of "The Lean Startup"; Beth Comstock, chief marketing officer of GE; and Steve Blank, author and serial entrepreneur.

The schedule calls for presentations to run from 11 a.m.-7:15 p.m. CST both days. Specifics of the Midwestern viewing parties differ by location, and some require a small fee to attend. For additional details or to register for the viewing party in your neck of the Prairie, click the link below.
