The strength of the founding team determines the strength of your start-up

The strength of the founding team determines the strength of the start-up. Whether you ask a successful entrepreneur, a leading incubator, or a seasoned investor, they all agree on one thing: the degree to which a founding team can efficiently collaborate largely predicts the success of that start-up.

But helping a founding team to collaborate effectively is challenging. It requires a skilled mentor or expensive consultant who knows how to balance soft and hard skills, who manages to name the elephant in the room without damaging relationships, and who knows how to shift from giving feedback to taking action.

In reality, start-ups often don’t take the time or have the resources to invest in this critical building block for success: strong founding team dynamics. Start-up Starters takes away this crucial pain point. Start-up Starters is a toolkit that any founding team can use to talk about what matters.

The toolkit requires no facilitation from an external party, eliminating a critical hurdle that start-ups often face: time and money.

Whether you have 30 minutes available or a working session of three hours, Start-up Starters is the toolkit to immediately drive the conversation to the root causes of your start-up’s success.

The toolkit’s content is designed on two pillars:

  1. practical experience from coaching +200 start-up's
  2. scientific insights on team performance translated to the world of start-ups.

Use Start-up Starters to drive the success of your start-up by leveraging the strength of the founding team
