The Lean Explorers Club for Investors
Quickly and cheaply find a desirable, feasible and viable new business!
We help startups find success!
What is the Lean Explorers Club?
How does it work?
The Lean Explorers Club has been designed to address problems entrepreneurs and the startup ecosystem face:
- Wasted time, effort and funding starting a business that won’t succeed
- Traditional startup accelerators that are one-size-fits-all, lack flexibility and not always based on evidence-based entrepreneurship
- Difficulties entrepreneurs face finding funding for validated business models
We support business explorers to use the quickest and cheapest experiments to find a desirable, feasible and viable new business. The Lean Explorers Club is an ‘Open Lean Accelerator’. By this we mean that it is:
- Open to everyone interested in using Lean Startup with Customer Development approaches to effectively and efficiently search for a business
- Always available as there are no fixed start or finish dates
- Individuals and teams can join when they wish, progress at their own pace and stay as long as they need
- Open to entrepreneurs and startups at any stage within their search for a business
- Offers access to potential equity funding for later stage (more expensive) lean experiments
Why the exploration metaphor?
What is Lean Business Exploration?
We believe that the search for and validation of a new business is more like exploration than executing a known path. Therefore, the team involved should be thought of as ‘Explorers’ rather than ‘Founders’ at least until they have found and validated a desirable, feasible and viable business model.
By this we mean the efficient and effective search for a new business by running the quickest and lowest-cost experiments. This approach increases the chance of success and reduces waste from starting and growing an unproven business model that fails.
