ILT Academy’s Virtual Lean Startup Innovation Cohort is designed for anyone who wants to start or grow their business. ILT Academy provides scholarships to participants provided by statewide, regional and local partners. There is no cost to participants other than your time.  Whether you’re an individual or part of a startup team, have an existing product or just starting to shape your ideas, this program can help you succeed. We welcome High Tech, Low Tech, No Tech business ideas, as well as non-profits.

Over 10 weeks, you will learn and practice how to unpack the customer discovery process, create products that people want, and validate your assumptions and ideas. Using the ILT Innovation Framework, you will explore market opportunities and articulate possible marketable solutions. The program combines remote learning, remote collaboration, and coaching to help you test and refine your business ideas. The course has limited full-tuition scholarships available and will conclude with a virtual founder showcase where you can deliver a 5 min pitch to  startup founders, business leaders, and potential investors.
