Is your business idea on the right track?
Join Ran Kohavi to audit a game-changing Validation Workshop!

Grab one of FIVE FREE spots - let us know why you should be there!

In lean startup terminology, validation is the process of testing a hypothesis (your business idea) by speaking to the ideal advisory board - your potential customers! You don’t have to be a startup tech company to take advantage of this technique. Groundswell alumni have launched non-profit organizations, design firms, catering companies, textile recycling initiatives, coffee import businesses and more, all using this simple but deep methodology.

About us: Do you have a strong desire to support yourself and make a change in the world? Do you want resources but ‘business school’ is NOT your jam? Groundswell is an alternative business school. We offer classes, mentoring, networking, and financing for your next big move. Discover Build will begin with an introduction to Groundswell and a short overview of our programs. Ask us anything!


Ran Kohavi is a technology entrepreneur passionate about starting new businesses and helping them grow. 15 years of experience in tech, early stage product and market validation, product management and quantitative finance. Founder and CEO, Kidaro (acquired by Microsoft, 2008); Founder, Kashya (acquired by EMC, 2006) Read his full bio.

Please note: This class is a pre-requisite for Groundswell’s Build program, which is a hands-on incubator for social ventures. Build starts Feb 25th. There are only a few spots left, and financing is available. Act npw!
