Lean Startup Academy


  • Selection in a biological context means the assortment of organisms due to their characteristics. On the one hand, this could be natural selection ("survival of the fittest") like in evolutionary processes. On the other hand, selection by man, e.g. breeding, is called artificial selection. Artificial selection is also used in genetic engineering to identify a genetically modified organism due to its new characteristics (e.g. resistance to antibiotics).
  • Validation is the process of verifying a thesis or a method of resolution in relation to the problem that should be solved.

The Lean Startup Academy is an unique opportunity to mature your business by systematically testing your ideas against the market with the support of experts. The course will help you to identify who your prioritary customers should be initially, what is the right value proposition for them and how to reach them.

The first Lean Startup Academy will support 10 European eHealth startups to improve their business model through an intensive programme delivered by experienced trainers.

This free-of-charge training will be delivered online during ten weeks, from May 15 to July 21, and in one live session on June 15 – June 16 from 9:00-18:00 at the ICEEfest Bucharest. Participants will have free access to the workshop and to ICEEhealth stage, as well as a 50% discount to join other stages. Companies will have access to a wide array of experts for one-to-one coaching customized to fit the specific needs of each participant, as well as specific support in connecting with healthcare organizations at international level for market validation

The training is based on Lean Startup and Customer Development methodologies, and uses the ´flip classroom´ approach with an important focus on the expertise of mentors. Participants will be pushed to share their experiences, re-think their current business approach focusing on solving customers’ needs, and get out of the building to validate their assumptions.
