It all starts here. Open and flexible, we chart a path together toward your goals. We help build your dream team, advance your product, line up clients, even get into a traditional accelerator. Whatever helps you get unstuck and move forward.
Sometimes it's best to skip accelerators go straight to investors. We help identify the right investors, draft emails, prep materials, coach you before meetings and help you negotiate your seed round at the right valuation.
If we really love working together it may happen that we become fully invested as your co-founder. This can make sense especially for solo founders or first time entrepreneurs who need a deeper level of involvement from our team.
We try to be present in our conversations, relationships and surroundings. It may look like we are not working.
