WHAT OUR FOUNDERS SAY
"Through customer discovery interviews (50+) our team found a unique problem worth solving within the the "well-being at work" arena. Through the Leanstack curriculum, I learned how to build a startup and used the built-in tools to model the business. Some key outcomes of going through this program were: building a website, developing video demos, assembling a "mafia offer", pitching the product and getting sales. Overall, I learned how to succeed as an early stage startup founder- all thanks to Untapped!"
