Your Company

QBIC’s Lean Acceleration Program is specifically designed to accelerate the growth of established & promising companies that radiate significant potential, and boost their investment readiness.

Does your product or service “fit” within the market?

Are you really listening to your customers? Maybe you’re one step away from unlocking your product’s full potential?

Promising, high-potential startups are ones that are currently operational with two or more employees, enjoy sales traction, a growing customer base and impressive month-on-month growth.

This program accelerates the growth of promising startups by helping them achieve Product Market Fit through a series of intensive, hands-on training sessions that cover key themes ranging from competitive mapping, product management & analytics to growth hacking, investment readiness & fundraising, in addition to continuous coaching & mentoring.
