Stage 1: Resource Madness
Paramount for growing a new venture is enabling founders to perceive the challenges, obstacles and situations in which they will need to put in significant effort. We ensure a 100% transformation in your mental model so that you are ready to tackle your fears and grow. Venture milestones are set at this stage and each start-up accepts accountability. The journey begins.
We believe in empowering founders at different stages. Understanding what options you have from a resourcing standpoint is what makes you stand apart. This approach enables long-term benefits and promotes a growth mindset.
