About

Empowering teams to innovate faster and more efficiently.

Startups often have the same goals as traditional companies, but a different approach: they are fast and able to transform entire industries with little money. 

The bestselling book “The Lean Startup” by Eric Ries raised global awareness of the key factors behind the enormous growth of the most successful startups.

Our 2-day Lean Startup workshop takes you through the whole startup growth cycle, from getting an accurate understanding of customers’ needs, to the creation of business prototypes.

This workshop is designed for managers working on (disruptive) new products and services within a larger enterprise. Ideal profiles for this workshop include:

  • New business developers
  • Product managers
  • Innovation managers
  • Soon-to-be intrapreneurs
  • Marketing (new products)
  • Trainees and new graduates
