AAL Lean Startup Academy

23rd September 2019 (Aarhus – Denmark)


The AAL Programme is glad to announce the first AAL Lean Start-up Academy, which will take place in the framework of the new edition of the AAL2Business Support Action, in Aarhus, Denmark, on 23rd September 2019.

The Lean Start-up Academy provides AAL projects with a valuable opportunity to validate their business model and increase their commercial traction. By checking their assumptions against the market, AAL projects will be guided by a business coach in identifying priority customers, the best fitting value proposition and the right channels to reach them out.

The session in Aarhus is the first of a set of three workshops, which compose a 4 months-long course, aimed at taking participating teams through the right steps to rapidly develop and test novel solutions by gathering feedbacks, developing a goal-oriented and well-planned business model for exploitation and dissemination of key results and solutions.

The second and third workshops will take place respectively in November/December and January/February in Brussels.


On 23rd September you will be guided in a learning by doing exercise aimed at understanding:

  • The mindset: Start small, Experiment
  • The involvement of customers: Fail, Iterate
  • How to get customer feedback with fast-made prototypes of an idea
  • How to test Business Models and validate the results


The Workshops will follow the flipped classroom approach: online video materials will be provided before the coaching, and time in class will be mainly devoted to team-work, discussion, debate and review.

Projects at the beginning or at mid-term of their implementation are the perfect target for the workshop.

Don’t lose this opportunity and share the news with the partners involved in your AAL funded project!
