It’s not just me: every person I know who’s worked with Ada wishes they met her sooner because of the clarity working with her brings. If you’re an early stage founder, or interested in increased results for your company’s product development, or a funder looking for better bets, RUN — don’t walk — to Ada.
I wish I worked with Ada months ago. She’s literally saved me hours and weeks by working with her.
In our first meeting, Ada quickly understood my business and had an amazing ability to ask insightful questions that helped me to get to the root of my challenge. Her approach of enabling self-discovery versus simply telling me the issue was appreciated. I’d highly recommend Ada.
There are very few true idea-stage / early stage resources in Austin that are highly structured. Ada Ryland is master of this domain. It’s $595 for six sessions, and I just highly recommend it. That also comes with access to Impact Hub so you can cowork when you need it.I don’t get paid for this. Ada doesn’t know I’m posting about it. I just care a lot about the onboarding of new entrepreneurs into the scene. There need to be more women and people of color particularly, and Ada is an ally in this cause. This is a safe and strong path in. If you’re trying to get it together, I encourage you contacting her to learn more.
I’ve come to think of Ada’s founder’s coaching as a pre-flight checklist for entrepreneurs. Professional pilots fly thousands of hours a year, but every time they get in a plane, they go through a checklist to make sure they’ve nailed all the important details. Entrepreneurs should all be doing the same before launching a startup.I’ve taken Ada’s six week course for founders and couldn’t be more impressed with the value she provides to early stage founders. Her insight and clarity are the result of a vast amount of experience honing down the most critical steps founders can take to increase the success rate of their startup. The first day you work with Ada, you’ll immediately wish you had taken the steps to work with her sooner.
I’m taking the current session of this class right now, and it’s been very valuable. I had an idea for awhile, but was lost on how to determine if it was worth moving forward. The facilitator, Ada Ryland has a very approachable teaching style and is very knowledgeable. It’s the kind of class that, the more you put into it, as far as doing the homework and communicating in the classes, the more you’ll get out of it. highly recommend!
Great class. I’m getting a lot of value out of it. All of the lectures and homework really focus you on the viability of your idea. I’ve made some important breakthroughs. The instructor, Ada Ryland, is wonderful. Like the nicest most approachable MBA professor you could ask for. Highly recommend anything that Ada teaches.
This is an incredible class. Ada Ryland is a fantastic teacher who can help you get to the next level!
On the tumultuous road to growing your startup, Ada is one of those people you will wish you’d met way sooner! As a gifted facilitator and innovation strategist, her unique framework leveraging Lean Start-Up methodology provided some much sought-after clarity and confidence to my next steps in validating our beachhead market. I consider Ada an invaluable resource to Austin’s startup community.
I credit Ada for helping me gain clarity and confidence to move forward in my business at a very pivotal point. Ada has a way of calling out your blind spots while making you feel supported and heard. She provides depth of knowledge in addition to strategic theory that helps you see the bigger picture. Her support and genuine interest in your business makes her such a joy to work with. If you are in ideation stage, at a fork in the roads, or struggling to move forward / prioritize your workflows, I would highly recommend working with Ada to help review and map out your strategy and put the right foot forward.
Ada Ryland has a strange passion for and thus value as a very early stage business planning ninja/ strategist. If you’re an entrepreneur like me who tends to have a lot of ideas and future plans in your head, you probably need help building the fastest path to viable revenue. I work with Ada on mapping out the specific steps we can take to test the many assumption involved in our business plan.Ada is like a business model hacker, looking for any structural weak points in our business plan that may be that thing that brings the rest of the plan tumbling down. She has done extensive training in and adeptly uses Ash Maurya’s lean business development methodology to help us set up very specific time-based experiments to test, prove and build out the early building block-like elements of our business plan. This has brought three big benefits to our team: 1) clarity, 2) a greatly accelerated speed to our evolution and 3) a confidence that we are building a solid foundation for everything we plan on doing in the future.
I worked with Ada on learning the fundamentals of how to build a successful startup. Her frameworks and method of simplifying complicated ideas was very useful to me. I’d recommend Ada for anybody that is in the very early stage of a startup.
Ada has great skill in helping entrepreneurs gain clarity about the business they are in and make strategic plans to most effectively use their (finite) energy.
