" Most of what you hear about entrepreneurship is all wrong. Itʼs not magic; it is not mysterious; and it has nothing to do with genes. Itʼs a discipline and, like any discipline, it can be learned. " - Peter Drucke
Innovation and entrepreneurship drives productivity and global competitiveness. The majority of new jobs in modern economies are created by firms that are less than 5 years old. We believe a business is about the manifestation of Ideas, we workshop with you to understand is your Idea solving a problem customers have? Is the problem a "bleeding neck wound" meaning a real problem that they are willing to pay to solve? Can you build it economically? Can you sell it profitably? The goal is to achieve product/market fit via trial and error early on in the development of your product.
