The RADIUS Trampoline Business Model Validation Program is an eight-session pre-accelerator for very early stage ventures. Through Trampoline’s validation stage program, we test your business model for alignment in three key areas, daylight critical gaps, and give you the confidence you need to move forward.
RADIUS is excited to be incubating and accelerating ventures that help people live healthy lives, specifically those that prevent lifestyle-based chronic diseases (e.g. diabetes type II, cancer, cardiovascular disease).
We are actively recruiting ventures with innovative business models that support individuals in Canada to make healthy lifestyle choices, such as through the delivery of services or the adoption of healthful products that encourage the following:
The objective of RADIUS’ Trampoline is to help early stage entrepreneurs and ventures validate their business model. In addition to providing tools to strategically grow an organization, the Trampoline program supports very early stage ventures to test alignment across three critical success factors:
