Vancouver-based Launch Academy has partnered with LeanStack, a software and services company meant to help entrepreneurs turn their ideas into scalable business models.

“Over the last nine years, we have been building a battle-tested continuous innovation methodology that helps entrepreneurs systematically build scalable business models. Once we saw that both our mission and approach to helping entrepreneurs succeed were in-sync with Launch Academy, partnering was a no-brainer,” said Ash Maurya, founder of LeanStack, author of Running Lean, and creator of the Lean Canvas.

The Launch Academy incubator provides mentorship, resources, and networks for early-stage entrepreneurs building their startup. The partnership is expected to help startups access comprehensive training programs, providing insight on product roadmaps and workshops.

“There’s nothing simple, streamlined, or easy about building a startup. That’s why we’ve taken great care in developing our programs to help over 1000 Canadian entrepreneurs over the past six years,” said Hussein Hallak, Launch Academy’s general manager.

Both Launch Academy and LeanStack will be actively cross-promoting, as well as exploring deeper integrations of each other’s products and services to better help entrepreneurs and startups.
