Launch Academy have opened up applications for their Lean Entrepreneur Program 2014. The Lean Entrepreneur Program provides participants with the most innovative skills and knowledge to effectively build their startups.
Instructors for the program will come from a list of accelerator executives, instructors from Queens University and General Assembly, Huffington Post writers, full-stack developers, partners at major law firms, serial entrepreneurs, and government representatives. These instructors are the best that Vancouver has to offer and will provide students, recent graduates, and career-changers with valuable insight as well as hands-on experience with everything from incorporating their businesses, to acquiring their first customers, to designing beautiful landing pages.
The Lean Entrepreneur Program has been enhanced to the level of an intensive curriculum including reading lists, assignments, presentations, exams, and a full-time instructor to oversee the syllabus. With only 20 spots available, participants can expect full immersion and attention in the program. If ready, participants will also have a chance to pitch their startups in front of angels, investors, the media, industry professionals and more at Launch Academy’s Pitch Day in August.
The lectures take place from July 8 to August 31 on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Launch Academy in Gastown. Sign up quickly because there are only 20 spots available and the early bird pricing ends on June 16 (with the final deadline for applications on June 23). Follow the link here to sign up.
Here are some reviews from last year’s participants:
“[The Lean Entrepreneur Program provided] absolutely invaluable startup education for any entrepreneur, and the foundation from which I’m launching my business,” said 2013 LEP graduate Michelle Martin.
“[This is a] program that’s jam-packed with essential startup topics, expert advice, and unparalleled mentorship. I would recommend this program to any early-stage entrepreneur,” added fellow graduate Jason Lu.
Launch Academy is a pre-accelerator program that helps entrepreneurs execute on their startups through education, mentorship, lean metrics, and networking opportunities. Launch Academy has established an environment where ideas are vetted, business models are tested and successes are celebrated. Founded on the values of innovation, opportunities and accountability, Launch Academy addresses the lack of startup education and resources affecting Vancouver entrepreneurs. Launch Academy aims to build a vibrant startup ecosystem and a prosperous economy where new jobs are created and new markets are discovered.
