The Accelerated Growth Programme
Lean Start Up Launchpad
Struggling to gain real traction and growth with your start up business?
You’re not alone, over 80% of start up businesses fail within 3 years and of those that survive, around 75% never actually go on to employ anyone beside the owner. The traditional approaches to creating and supporting high potential innovative fledgling firms like yours have proven to be unfit for purpose.
So what are the successful startups doing different and better to make the winning difference?
Of those that succeeded, the vast majority drastically changed their original plans. Critically, the winners recognised that it is not about trying to perfect Plan A, but having a step by step process in place that leads to a plan that works before you run out of cash. This is in essence what the game-changing Lean Startup Launchpad can deliver to you - a structured, practical approach to building a better startup faster.
Accelerated Growth Programme - Lean Launchpad Workshop Series
This series of hands-on, half day workshops, will provide you with the opportunity to learn and directly apply this winning approach to your fledgling business. The practical techniques you’ll learn will enable you to breakthrough the barriers and unleash your business’s true growth potential.
