Getting It Together in the EarlyStage

  • Impact Hub Austin 411 West Monroe Street Austin, TX, 78704 United States (map)

This class is for you if ... 

  • You have a "big idea" for a business and are wondering if it will work,

  • You have been working on an idea and would like to go faster

  • You are a first-time founder and would like to improve your effectiveness in the challenging new role

Getting an idea off the ground takes a lot longer and is more overwhelming that most people would like to admit. There are many founders who are working very hard, taking a lot of action, but not getting to the next level and on to growth. Being an effective founder is no easy task. Those who have done it know exactly how hard it is. 

This class has two basic premises: 

  • You can learn how to become an effective founder with a direct approach

  • First-time founders don't need beginner tools -- they need the most advanced ones that help the most.

This 6-session class gives you an advanced approach to managing the early stage. We will start with a sophisticated overview of the entire process and then expand on each major part that is important in the early stage. We use a framework to organize it all, and give you effective practical tools that help you ask better questions. You will start applying best practices from the very first session, and value keeps coming every week.
