Two Months Immersion

+ Investor Pitch Day Event

For startups with: Traction (Revenue & Customers)

Our two month program affords time for founders to innovate their ventures under the guidance of coaches, develop a network in Silicon Valley to support their company, and to explore longer term relationships with advisors. Like in the two week program, our focus is founder development around customer discovery, leadership development and effective story telling, however the two month program focuses on applying understandings to the venture, targets more advanced founders and includes introductions to investors. Founders look at data with coaches and advisors to guide decision making, assess high value channels, participate in pitch training, and benefit from the transformative leadership coaching that catalyzes powerfully collaborative teams. The program ends with founders presenting their ventures at an investor Pitch Day event.
