Event description

Description

Starting a company is hard. I want to help you.

Often times sales, growth, and building a product are the biggest challenges founders face early on. Every week at these brainstorming sessions founders come together to help move each other forward. Fixing a broken software product, getting a first sale, reducing software development expense, hiring employees, we've helped founders overcome these issues.

I especially want to help at the beginning, when it is the hardest. No sales, a product that needs work, no budget to hire talented staff.

I've started 4 businesses, and helped grow 2 others, to various levels of success. SPLT where I served as CTO for 6 months sold to Bosch, a multi-billion dollar company. Two of the businesses I founded in Lansing ended up winning service contracts with multi-billion dollar organizations.

I've also been part of 3 businesses that didn't go well at all. I know how painful and how rewarding founding a company can be.

I want to learn what your biggest challenge is, so we can help you move forward with ideas, shared experiences, network connections, and resources.

Agenda

  • Founders share: who they are, what their business does, and what stage their company is at (pre-sales,cashflowing, cashflow positive, growth mode, etc.)
  • Founders share their biggest challenge, or what they'd like help with this week that will move their business forward.
  • One founder at a time gets the hot seat and we work to help move them forward.

Examples of help include:

  • Getting an attendee a meeting with someone who had started a Ukranian company to help reduce their software development costs.
  • Helping one attendee understand revenue levels and the business model a competitor was using to generate $25K monthly recurring revenue
  • Helping attendees understand why it works better to focus on building a product, users love, before spending marketing dollars to acquire additional customers.
