Venture Capitalist Testimonial:

“The entrepreneurs journey is as much about battling our own dragons (fears, pressures, insecurities, etc.) as it is about external product/market fit, competitive advantage, etc. While many resources exist for sales force optimization, talent recruiting, fundraising and other core areas, few exist to address these other even more critical factors affecting founders and their teams.

Good Startups brings a rare mixture of leading theory with real world experience and DNA to provide startups the support they need to succeed in even the most trying situations. For companies that embrace and master these, they will have a significant advantage over their competitors.”
