We are NOT mentors, advisors, consultants, teachers or a coach. We act as your 'co-founder', a Sherpa of sorts, for a period of 8 weeks. We will act like what you'd expect from a co-founder, coming up with the answers together, accountable to each other. As one past customer said "You're a dream investor" as we take no equity stake.
So many startups leave the question for scale for a later day or year. Right at the outset, we are focused on helping you understand the scale of the problem or need, how to use 'strategic intent', intelligent constraints, relationships, technology and business model to scale the change (impact) you are creating.
We don't believe in an 'out-of-the-box' program for you, nor do we believe people learn best in big groups, or in conference rooms. Therefore, we co-create with you, an 8 week goal, a 4 week goal, and micro-goals every week to help you accomplish your bespoke needs.
A business plan, for a startup, often fails the big test with first customers. This program is designed to take you out of your comfort zone, to test your hypotheses and act fast on your failures, not to hide behind documents, but to 'get out of the building' and 'search' for scalable and repeatable components.
We are less of an evening or weekend place to go. Most likely you've got your day jobs, so we help you to design your days, so that you touch base with your start-up idea every 4 hours to create and sustain a sense of urgency. We've designed a program that aids you, with regular timely updates, questions, insights, inspiration and on-demand calls with us.
We are less about talking at you, delivering lectures, like most online courses. We deliver the powerful combination of knowledge (how to build a lean start-up), mindsets (around fail-fast, skills (like customer development, story telling), and access to people (successful entrepreneurs, investors, customers in an international network)
