Personalized Onboarding

Every one founder is unique. That's why we conduct a 1-1 personalized onboarding to kick-start your first 30 days with one-to-one attention from our Success Team. We take the time to get to know you personally, from where you grew up to how you got here and where you want to go next. We believe this lays a solid foundation for building a long-term relationship.

Membership Reviews

It's easy to get distracted when you're inside the tornado of launching and scaling a startup. That's why we make time every week to monitor your engagement and reach out as needed to clarify, track and update your objectives -- then follow with warm introductions to members, partners and investors who can help.

A Curated Experience

With 600+ energetic founders participating in hundreds of forum threads and events, it can be difficult keeping track. Our Success Team will make sure you get a personal note about the threads, events, deals and new members who we think are particularly relevant to you.
