A founder’s journey to success is grueling and exhilarating. The early days are an electric juggling act. You need everything – an MVP, product market fit, a v1 product, customers, revenue, a team, a website, legal docs, an accounting system, FUNDING…and so on.
And it’s hard. Hard to prioritize. Hard to know what to focus on next. Hard to get anyone to talk with you about the real work ahead.
We understand. We’ve been through the furnace and out the other side. We started as founders, scaled up as operators, and exited. Multiple times. Over many years. We have loads of collective scar tissue. We know where the potholes are because we have stepped in them before. And now we have pattern recognition and know the formula it takes to go the distance.
Along the way, we have built a network of people to lean on – a community of supporters, investors, and other successful founders that have been there and done that. They are our village and the team we trust.
And they are with us to back your Founderville journey.
