Our Process
001 — Idea Match
Together with high-potential entrepreneurs, we Ideate and identify a discrete, testable idea in the economic opportunity space that addresses a $1B+ market and is aligned with the founder’s skills and experience.
002 — Validate
Once we have identified an idea, we de-risk customer demand for the product and service through customer development, interviews, and prototypes.
003 — Launch
We provide entrepreneurs with a stipend to run an MVP to de-risk the business, acquire early customers, and secure exteneral resources. The entrepreneur stipend unlocks founding talent that couldn’t otherwise afford 9 months without a paycheck.
004 — Grow
We provide ongoing founder coaching, operational playbooks, recruiting and fundraising support to help founders grow their own skills as they grow their companies.
What To Expect
