A savvy investor’s secret weapon

No one should invest hard-earned cash based on gut feelings, but when you can't see the road ahead, it takes a leap of faith to commit.

Like you, I've felt frustrated by too much internal discussion. Too many opinions and not enough data, and it's easy to feel confused and uncertain.

Change this broken paradigm to a new way of getting things done. Want less risk, higher commitment, and more clarity?

“We help angels and founders de-risk their investment in new ideas, gain clarity and confidence, and find product/market fit quickly, in days or weeks, not months or years.”

For modern teams, poorly executed meetings are a huge problem

[Companies] waste valuable time and money in unproductive meetings. And they're willing to pay high fees to replace high-stakes meetings with thoughtfully-designed, focused workshops that actually reach their desired outcomes. Companies that invested time into crafting clear goals and strategy were close to twice as likely to see increases in revenue.

From doubtful to confident in 3 weeks or less.

Every day you turn down good ideas, and big questions are left unanswered. It's essential for you to be aware of undue risk, yet fear leads to inaction and lack of momentum.

It's better to enjoy abundant options, the confidence of proven ideas, and the strength of validated champions.
