The who, what, why

Who we are and why we do what we do

We teach people how to start and grow companies

Our mission

We provide startup education and support to help people to be successful at starting a business. Most people aren't taught how to turn an idea into a reality, and it's hard to find others on a similar journey. We teach people how to do this and facilitate ongoing support through our community.

But what we're really on a mission to do is create a better way of existing, for the founders we help, and the customers they serve. We do this by helping people to set off on a personal discovery journey, to find out more about themselves and the value they want to create in the world.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

- Mahatma Gandhi

We help people to know their value, and use it to create valuable products and services.

Our purpose

Too much time and energy is wasted by people doing meaningless work. Imagine if every human knew what they cared about most, what they were good at and focused all their time and energy on solving the problems they could become the best in the world at solving. And get paid well for it.

Not only would they have a successful company, they'd also be doing work that is meaningful and fulfilling.

We want more people to experience this, so we teach people how to start and grow companies.

How we help people and companies

We've developed solutions to solve the common problems people face when trying to develop an idea and then grow a company.
