Build a plan.

Acting on a false assumption can kill your startup. We give you the tools to test your assumptions, toss out the ones that are inaccurate, and focus on the ones that are true. You will:

  • Test critical assumptions to reduce risk
  • Develop criteria to define features
  • Prototype solutions and get real customer feedback

Build a real company, with real value.

There are lots of moving parts in starting a business. At the completion of the Accelerator, you will have:

  • Created a formal business entity
  • Crafted a unique value proposition
  • Defined a viable business model
  • Sketched out a marketing and sales plan

It is very overwhelming to start a new business. However, having the LaunchBox staff and advisors around to provide guidance and ask questions saved me months, if not years, of trial and error.

If you need to build fast, ask her how.

One thing for sure with Lee is it's all about building something fast (and inserting movie references into conversation whenever possible). Whether it's building a Hot Wheels jump ramp on her front porch with the rest of the LaunchBox team, or helping teams build a plan to launch, she loves to figure out how to build quickly and cheaply to learn fast.

Interesting in meeting with someone about your idea? We’d love to hear what you’re working on.
