We are living in a new world. The challenge today isn’t building more products and services but uncovering what to build.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the program delivered?
The program is delivered using online lessons that you learn on your own time.

How much does the program cost?
This course is free. The only other cost is books (Running Lean and Scaling Lean) which we'll use as textbooks during the course. 

Is this a remote or onsite course?
The course is run 100% remotely over the LEANSTACK platform (account required).

Can I participate with my team?
Yes, that's highly encouraged. You'll need as complete a team as possible (hacker + hustler + designer) to implement all the ideas in the course. That said, we've had many solo founders start the program and fill out their team along the way. We share some tactics for team building in the program.

How much time will I be required to dedicate to this course?
A good target would be 10 hours a week - more is, of course, better.

Do you help with implementation?
We'll provide you with advice, guidance, templates, and a list of 3rd party tools to speed up implementation. But we don't do the implementation work for you. This is not a course where we fish for you, but teach you how to fish.
