Have an awesome startup idea, but don't quite know where to start?
Want the proof of concept to turn on investors and developers?
Already in motion, but things with your team and product are moving too slow?
Intrigued by Lean Startup methodologies but don't know exactly how to implement them?
Well, you're in luck. Welcome to the Lean Validation Accelerator.
We take you through three sequential steps of learning. Most people have an idea (solution) and immediately start building (the wrong thing). We teach you how to go faster and save months of your life and thousands of your dollars.
This program has been designed and refined with 2,500 innovators all over the world, and implemented with companies like Salesforce, Intuit, and News Corp.
In this rigorous, fast-paced, process-oriented program, we will push you to:
Don’t spend another month planning, talking, arguing with founders, trying to raise money: every second you spend “strategizing” and “ideating,” you’re wasting valuable time where you could be learning and shipping.
Fail Fast. Succeed Faster!
No coding, design, or other specialized skills are necessary. All you need is a desire to learn and a commitment to do the work. Be prepared to be pushed and challenged. If you are willing to spend 2-4 hours outside of the class and your comfort zone, applying the concepts and exercises learned in class, we guarantee it will change your life. It will also change your tuition. Complete the class, including the 10 in person customer development interviews, and we will give you $150 back or 5 hours of free coding/design.

I wish I could have taken this class when I built my first startup, neighborrow.com and I used the methods I teach in my current app for wedding photos - where I validated the solution and had paying customers before I wrote a line of code. That's why I am teaching it - Adam
