Both startups and investors enjoy many valuable benefits from participating in our unique startup ecosystem network:
WE HAVE A LARGE NETWORK:
Access to a vast network of “from the trenches” matter experts, of like-minded professionals, entrepreneurs, business leaders, educators and academic leaders, government officials, scientists, engineers, coaches, thought-leaders, VCs and angel investors who are focused on helping the new startup economy.
WE HAVE HIGH QUALITY DEAL FLOW:
At the conclusion of our process the most promising startups are trained to be presented to our select group of investors. Since we are part of the startup team of matter experts and have “skin in the game” and based on our experience and reputation, investors are more apt to invest in the startups we support.
WE BELIEVE IN SHARED SERVICES:
Why go at it alone? And why constantly re-invent the wheel? And why do things in a vacuum? We provide a solid and reputable list of shared, collective and collaborative services from legal to accounting, to branding, to product development to sales empowerment that not only speeds up the traction of the startups but reduces the costs of such services considerably.
WE SAVE TIME:
Time is your most valuable capital!Startup Port believes there is no “Ctrl-Alt-Del” for your time. Thus, we push startup founders to speed up their process to success by implanting the Sprint 90 Program. We are not an incubator which is a “rental business model”, we are not an accelerator which is a “financial brokerage business model”. We are supporting startups with our intellectual capital by providing an efficient, smart and expedited way of getting traction in the shortest amount of time. Collective support increases effectiveness and reduces the cost and time over going it solo.
WE ADDRESS RISK:
In business, risk NEVER goes away! No matter how you slice it, the lack of attention paid to “risk mitigation” and “risk management” by executive operators is the root cause of the startup problems that lead to failure. With our due diligence process we founders and their teams better understand, articulate and convey the interrelated business risks (operational and financial) associated with sustainably acquiring consumers, customers, partners and investors.
WE HAVE A PROCESS:
Our signature Sprint 90 program values time above all other forms of capital. The intensive pace of our program requires startups to create an exacting structure for accelerated growth, forcing founders to consider multiple scenarios. Our methodology emphasizes on operational risk mitigation, financial risk management, subject matter support and technology development. The deployment of intellectual capital first, is elemental to managerial execution on proven business strategies that yield sustained traction.
