• NANO ENTREPRENEURSHIP


Are you actively working on a side project and wondering how to get traction? Are you also wondering how that traction can (one day) turn into a disruptive, powerful business?


Then you're the right person for Nano Entrepreneurship. Nano was born out of one simple concept: people shouldn't need to be crazy to become entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurs shouldn't need to be lucky to succeed.


Instead of throwing an idea on paper and betting the house, use Nano to build a real business in a small market, and then raise capital to bring your innovation to a larger market when you're truly ready.


In short, Nano is the evolution of Lean.
