Startups

At heart we're half educators, half entrepreneurs. We love startups, and help them thrive.

We collaborate with leading startup programs, incubators, and accelerators, and serve on the Board of Advisors of up-and-coming ventures. Our goal is to help founders achieve growth by sharing the Silicon Valley mindset and training them in the design-thinking tools.
