Our Process and Methodology

We use the Lean Startup customer-validation methodology as the core of our curriculum for both Lean Startup bootcamps and our Accelerator because it addresses the most fundamental need for all kinds of entrepreneurs, whether innovation-led/high growth, micro-enterprise, main street businesses, or 2nd stage companies.
