Frequently Asked Questions

How is the program delivered?
The program is delivered using:
  • online lessons that you learn on your own time,
  • weekly group Q&A webinars, and
  • open office hours.

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

Is this a remote or onsite bootcamp?
The bootcamp is run 100% remotely using webinars for group interaction and Zoom meetings for 1:1 sessions. And, of course, LEANSTACK tools for tracking your business model, ideas, and experiments.

How do timezones work?
We try and factor the timezones of students into the time selection for webinars as much as possible. All webinars are also recorded with replays made availble afterwards. Everything else is handled asynchronously over the LEANSTACK platform.

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 bootcamp. 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 bootcamp?
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.
