OUR RESOURCES

Our role is to help entrepreneurs change the world, giving them the support they need to better organise their companies and fuel their visions. That’s why we have decided to publicly share the resources that we’ve created throughout the years to help our clients navigate their fundraising.

These include guides, checklists, models and reports that may help entrepreneurs have a better understanding of the fundraising process.*

*these are the same templates that we use internally and for our clients, but they are just a starting point… If you are confused or intimidated by them, check out our courses where we explain one by one each template or reach out to us and we’ll take care of the rest.

OUR COURSES

Throughout our journey we have met so many startups that just needed a little nudge in order to guide them into the right direction. A short call, simple instructions and some moral support was all they needed in order to crack on with their businesses. That’s why we have created our downloads.

But sometimes it’s not enough… and as we don’t have the time to explain the ins and outs of our methodology we decided to invest money, time and energy to create a short series of courses to help you master aspects of your company that include projections, performance and fundraising.

HORROR STORIES

scary hazards that haunt founders & entrepreneurs

We tell our children unsettling fairy tales to teach them valuable life lessons, but the following treacherous tales are for the education of the grown ups – and they are all true, experienced and suffered through by fellow founders and entrepreneurs.

Their stories demonstrate the dangers and challenges that can impact start-ups and SMEs, and what future entrepreneurs can learn from these all-too-real nightmares.

In other words, we want to help other founders and entrepreneurs avoid falling for these traps but, at the same time, we don’t want to be sued. So decide for yourself…
