entrepreneurship@UBC is running two back-to-back cohorts of the Lean LaunchPad Accelerator program this spring! The first runs from April 13th to May 11th and the second from May 25th to June 22nd.

The program consists of five Monday morning sessions from 8:00am to 12:00pm, where team members will participate in a fast-paced environment with the guidance of world-class entrepreneurial educators and experienced industry mentors. Throughout the program teams will develop and validate hypotheses, interview many players in their ecosystem, and emerge with a clear idea of their value proposition, customers, market, and the key drivers for their venture’s success.

These are the last two Accelerators e@UBC is running until Fall 2015 so don’t miss out! Apply now to take your startup to the next level.
