(Vancouver, B.C.) April 5th, 2018 –  Launch Academy is excited to announce a strategic partnership with LeanStack, a software and services company that helps entrepreneurs turn their ideas into scalable business models.

“As we head into our 7th year of business and continuing with our mission to train over 1,000,000 entrepreneurs to get from idea to traction, teaming up with one of the premier lean startup thought leaders is a major step forward,” said Ray Walia, CEO of Launch Academy. “LeanStack software and services are a natural fit with our existing and future training programs, and together we can help entrepreneurs accelerate their startup journey and build great companies.”

“Over the last 9 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 Lean Stack, bestselling author of Running Lean and creator of the Lean Canvas.

Launch Academy’s General Manager Hussein Hallak pointed out that “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.” He continued that “through this partnership, entrepreneurs anywhere around the world will have access to the most comprehensive training programs and world-class software built by entrepreneurs to accelerate their startup journey from idea to traction.”
