Run by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs.
Our staff have all started and run businesses and we bring that experience to everything we do.
We love helping others to jump start and grow their businesses so set up at time with us to talk about next steps.
A focus on empowering entrepreneurs.
Our goal is to hep you make more informed business decisions. To to that we believe you need to have access to a variety of experts so we’ve build a network of 60+ industry and domain experts that help you avoid common mistakes.
The entrepreneurs we assist are typically working to launch non-traditional businesses with an unknown, or unproven, business model and are in the early stages of defining and launching their ventures.
Learn fast. Fail fast. Iterate.
All our programs and coaching are based on a lean startup approach. Key to the this approach is learning quickly and cheaply, then adjusting based on what you’re learning.
We help entrepreneurs to “get out of the building” and interact with potential customers to validate their assumptions before they build anything. This way they build what they know people want, not what the think they want.
We like to have fun too.
Starting a business is hard, so we make sure that we we work in some fun too.
Sometimes we even take road trips to get inspired by visitng amazing startup companies here in Pennsylvania.
