Starting out in business is a roller coaster of uncertainty and constant iteration in the quest to find the right product-market fit. As the co-founder of Linkedin, Reid Hoffman often said “ Starting a company is like jumping off a cliff and assembling a plane on the way down.” Having the right set of tools, playbooks, frameworks, and systems are very important factors for success in the entrepreneurial journey.

The LEANSTACK helps early stage startups systematically go from their Plan A to a plan that works before running out of resources. The LEANSTACK toolkit include step-by-step playbooks, the lean canvas tool, LEAN Validation Framework, Entrepreneur Academy, tools and coaching for early-stage startups, accelerators and academic institutions.
