Description

  • Through a proven, part-time 12 week program, existing and prospective startup founders can learn how to launch their companies with expert mentoring, feedback, and support.  And unlike many incubators and accelerators, we do NOT ask for equity in your company (paying in equity may seem like a cheap deal, but incubators that charge 2% - 6% equity for courses similar to Startup Advantage are actually costing you $6,000 - $18,000 for access to similar mentors, tools and contacts.  Do the math yourself on what that equity could be worth at exit...)  And by leveraging the learning and connections made at our events, SVForum Members have raised over $250M in venture capital since 2008, outperforming 98% of incubators in the country!

    Please note that seating is limited to allow personal coaching, so we recommend early registration to secure your place.

    Featuring a host of guest mentors, VCs, and angels - see below for details - plus actionable collateral, so you get going fast, this focused program on 12 interactive workshops will guide you through the key areas critical for success, from recruiting co-founders to raising ventrue capital, and how these affect YOUR startup.

    “The Startup Advantage program was truly a worthwhile and memorable experience. What I learned, what I saw, what I heard & the connections I made throughout the 12 week program were far more valuable than the text of a book or a dry lecture, and provided a deeper understanding of the entrepreneurial world.  More importantly, this program fueled my passion to create.”
    Tracey Horne, Startup Advantage Delegate

    There’s a lot to get done – recruiting a top notch team, building the prototype, acquiring first customers, developing a scalable business model, raising venture capital, and a whole lot more.  So what are the key factors you need to master, and how can you leverage these to your advantage, and leave the competition eating your dust?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
