A foundational blueprint for building and scaling entrepreneurship education
in a world where remote work is the new normal.
Entrepreneurial thinking is a key skill to teach future generations.
Entrepreneurial thinking isn’t just for startups anymore. From pandemics to climate change, we are increasingly living in a rapidly changing world riddled in extreme uncertainty. Navigating this new world will require new problem solving mindsets built on continuous learning and rapid experimentation.
We are living in a new world which requires a new operating system. The good news is entrepreneurial thinking can be taught to anyone, but you have to take a different approach.
LEANSTACK helps you transform how you teach entrepreneurial thinking by starting with key mindsets and reinforced with experiential learning.
Start with mindset.
Because of COVID-19, you are likely scrambling to flip your current accelerator to support virtual programming. Without the right tools, this can be daunting. We're here to help.
We built LEANSTACK to serve our global audience of entrepreneurs and we've been coaching startup teams 100% virtually for almost a decade.
To date, we have put thousands of teams through our platform participating from 27 countries.
Good teams practice good habits. These can be measured and used to find high-performance teams.
The early stage is all about investing in the right people and teams — not ideas. The only thing certain is that early ideas will drastically change.
Good teams quickly recognize and kill off bad ideas and eventually find good ideas. Bad teams can’t tell a good idea from a bad idea and they either stick with bad ideas too long or hopelessly fumble good ideas. You need a way to quickly separate good teams from bad teams.
LEANSTACK helps you make smarter investment decisions by identifying high-performance teams using data heuristics (and machine learning) that track skills, activities, and traction.
What we measure to determine EntrepreneurIQ.
The most impactful way for building high-performing teams is through 1:1 coaching and mentorship. This is also the least scalable activity. It doesn't have to be.
The way to scale your mentorship is through a consistent process. Predictable results come from consistent processes. This is ever so important during the early stage of an idea riddled with extreme uncertainty. If your startups ask 10 advisors for advice and get 10 different answers, that doesn't help them -- it creates needless chaos. This is also called the Advisor Whiplash.
LEANSTACK helps you scale mentorship by providing a coaching system derived from thousands of hours of coaching startups that helps you spend more time accelerating versus educating your startups.
A battle-tested approach to building companies that matter built on two cult-classic bestsellers.
Measure, refine, improve.
The key to improving your portfolio results is through continuous innovation of your own. Cohort analysis, i.e. measurement in batches versus aggregate, is the gold standard for isolating changes and inferring causality in your programming versus wildly changing lots of things and going around in circles. Once you normalize your data across cohorts, you can more easily identify what's working and double down.
LEANSTACK helps you measure performance across cohorts, teams, and individual founders so you can continuously optimize your programs.
