About the Facilitator, Ada Ryland

Ada Ryland is an early-stage founder coach. Her approach focuses on the founder and their effectiveness, not solely on the startup idea. She uses a methodical, scientific approach to that super-early, very-uncertain stage every startup founder faces and will give you a framework that integrates principles of customer development, advanced lean startup methodologies, academic theories of innovation, science, and other seemingly unrelated topics into a coherent and effective way.
