Frequently Asked Questions

Is Lean Canvas free?

Lean Canvas and our Foundations course are part of our free forever basic tier. All other tools and courses require a paid subscription.

Can we cancel at any time?

LEANSTACK Academy works like a gym-membership - you pay monthly and can cancel or downgrade your account to our free tier at any time. If you prepaid for a year, we'll refund any unused months.

What happens to the courses if we downgrade to the free tier?

You get to keep what you paid for... You'll still have access to a snapshot of all the courses in your account at the time of cancelation.

Why should we join LEANSTACK Academy? Can't we get the same learnings from your books and free videos?

We recommend that everyone start with our free course (Foundations) and books, which lay the groundwork for the framework. But books are static. Our courses and workshops, on the other hand, are constantly updated to deliver the latest thinking, tactics, and strategies for putting the framework to practice.

What's the format of the monthly workshops and what's typically covered?

The workshops are 2 hours long with 1 hour of deep-dive content on a specific topic, and another hour of questions and/or breakout room activities to put the concepts you learn to practice. Past topics have included crafting effective unique value propositions, identifying your riskiest assumptions, and designing effective experiments.

What if we can't attend the monthly workshops live?

We record all events and make the replay and slides available afterward.

Can you introduce us to investors?

Yes. We partner with a number of accelerators who teach our playbooks in their programs and are happy to introduce you to investors if fund-raising is part of your goal.

Why is there a 7 person limit per team?

High-performing teams work best when they are small, multi-disciplinary, and focused on a common goal. We find the ideal team size to achieve this is 3-7 people.

Can we get a discount if we are less than 7 people?

Unforuntately, no. The reason we price the Academy membership per team vs. per seat is to eliminate friction when bringing on more team members. We want to make it easy to bring your entire team into LEANSTACK so that your entire team is aligned around the same mindsets and goals.

Can we run our own version of the LEANSTACK Academy inside our company across multiple teams and projects?

Yes, we license the platform to startup accelerators, universities, and corprorate customers which helps them run their own startup and innovation initiatives powered by our playbooks and portfolio management tools. If you're interested in learning more, book a call here.
