What We Do
We run a wide variety of startup acceleration and innovation programs that fit any organization’s budget. We combine in-person, virtual, and on-demand coaching with a data-driven assessment framework and deep set of guides and tools that can help put startups on the right track.
We built our program around the Nine Vital Signs of Startup Success. We assess and score all our startups, and give clear, actionable feedback on needed areas of improvement. Once a company scores high enough, we will introduce the company to our investor network.
Put simply, we want to de-risk startups for both founders and investors. Typically, 90% of startups fail, and 80% of those failures are attributable to product-market fit and teams. So we decided to build our framework around the measurement, remedial feedback, and tools to increase success rates.
About Our Programs
With a deep roster of Silicon Valley veterans, our on-demand tools, calculators and checklists, vast collection of workshops and lectures, and deep Silicon Valley network, we can offer a suite of startup innovation and acceleration programs for any budget.
Venture Studio as a Service
We have completely reimagined the concept of a venture studio and offer our turn-key program that can be run for any organization that disburses funds to startups, whether they are VCs or governments. We call it VSaaS, and it is the first completely data-drive and performance-based program that breaks companies’ activities into Traction Sprints. Tranched investments companies only happen once those key milestones are achieved, thus mitigating overall portfolio risk.
Globalizing your company into any market is difficult. Entering the US market, in most cases the largest and most competitive one in the world, is even more difficult. We offer a suite of programs for startups of all sizes, and allow companies to prepare months in advance to maximize their chances of success. Additionally, we provide ongoing porfolio company support to ensure that companies continue to be prepared to meet the challenges they face every day.
Everyone around the world wants to have a version of Silicon Valley to serve as a catalyst for innovation, growth, and 21st century jobs. We get that and work with local leaders on creating the type of innovation hub that will work best in their region. Not a one size fits all solution, we introduce the best practices and mindset along with the local strengths and values to help shape the type of program that will ensure a vibrant innovators’ community that will thrive for years.
In this newly-developed eight-week program, startup founders and entrepreneurs can lay a foundation for an AI-first startup company, not only using tools to maximize productivity and achieve professional and credible results with generative AI, but also the resources needed to build a data-first business strategy that allows companies to build long-term, sustainable advantages through the data they acquire, analyze, and act upon to obtain new, better insights.
Spanish Language Program
We partnered with UC Berkeley to translate our program into Spanish and make available in the Latin American Market.
Investor Readiness Assessment
One of our key tools is the Investor Readiness Assessment, which leverages our Nine Vital Signs of Startup Success. Through constant measurement and startup feedback, we can help startups achieve key milestones, and de-risk the company for founders and investors.
