About LISA

It is a hybrid platform and ecosystem for founders and innovators to experiment and incubate Ideas to MVP stage and also to transition MVPs to real-life ventures. Founded by Stanford GSB LEAD participants for the LEAD Community.

LISA resulted from bringing together ideas, concepts, and experiences from Capstone Projects and SVDT Club. We asked the community, consulted with experts, brainstormed and identified the needs and gaps that existed in the LEAD community. We then designed a solution that we collectively think the community needs and can benefit from.

In the initial iteration, LISA intend to function as a conduit for Stanford Rebuild initiative within the LEAD community. This essentially implies that all Stanford LEAD participants taking part in Rebuild program will be able to leverage the support and the guidance offered by LISA throughout the duration of the program.

LISA & Three Stages of Engagement


Idea To Application

If you have an entrepreneurship idea
that you are passionate and keen to
pursue you can connect with us and
apply to take part in the Stanford Rebuild program

(Idea to MVP)

When your application to participate is
approved, you will be enrolled into the
next LISA cohort available. LISA will help incubate your idea through to MVP stage using Stanford's world class
