Let the venture begin

IDEATION

 

In this phase, we help guide and provide you with the tools you need to select the best idea. We assist you in figuring out which of your ideas have the most chance of success. Your startup has the highest chance of success when it is aligned with the things you value most. We will guide you through this critical step and help you turn your ideas into a bonafide money-making venture.

VALIDATION

 

This is where we help you run quick experiments and gain customer feedback in order to test and improve your business idea. We guide you in talking to real customers early on. We help you get product/market fit and build a minimal viable product (MVP). Unlike the old approach where entrepreneurs spend months building a product only to launch and find that nobody is buying, in our lean approach we launch and validate multiple times in quick succession to reduce time and cost. This also ensures that we build products that customers will love and pay for.

FUNDRAISING

 

This consists of investor readiness and investor pitch creation. Investor readiness takes you through the critical areas that investors look at before they invest. We’ll help you improve the key metrics that will make your startup attractive to investors. Investor pitch creation guides you through how to put together a compelling story for investors and mastering the strategy behind capital raising. At the end of the process, the best startups are showcased to our network of investors.

OUR MISSION

At Startup Circles, our mission is to guide founders and equip them with the knowledge, tools and networks to build sustainable businesses.

It used to be that access to world-class guidance was only possible for the select few with connections and money – but not anymore. At Startup Circles we are democratizing access to the right circles to help you build your business and raise investment.

We do all this because we believe that commercially viable businesses have the power to transform people’s lives and create wealth for communities and nations.

At Startup Circles, you’re
in the right circles.
