We teach early-stage founders the skills, attitudes and principles they need now - stripping away all the hype and superfluous methodology.
Our workshops are buzzword-free, motivating, and alternate between covering core principles, real startup stories and fast-paced workshops where each founder makes progress on their idea.
Drawing from a large collection of tools and techniques, we give your founders immediate skills to quickly expose blind spots, better alternatives, and customer behaviours that point to real commercial opportunity. Instead of blindly "making the leap", they have the tools and skills to make regular course-corrections.
A small number of preventable problems destroy huge value for accelerator programs: founder disagreements, "perfect plan" execution mode, failing to understand the customer, and dropping the ball on demo day. If just two of your teams falls into these common traps, you've lost a huge percentage of your cohort's potential. We stop them from happening.
We'll help your program in three ways. First, we'll dive into the educational structure of your program and talk through the best practices and "gotchas" that we've gathered across working with 15 other programs. Next, we'll help with workshop delivery and follow-up. We firmly believe that running a workshop and then disappearing is a huge waste of time for everyone involved. We won't just tell your teams that it's good to talk to customers; we'll sit down with each of them 1-to-1 to plan their interview questions and even join them at that key meeting. And finally, we'll report back on the health of your teams and portfolio using our Accelerator Dashboard.
