Our Mission: To help startups learn, build and grow through the free exchange of ideas, the development of actionable strategies and the implementation of both.
Our Vision: Our vision is that every company with a focused, principled team dedicated to solving important business and social problems will succeed in building, launching and selling their products in their chosen marketplace.
- Efficiency: The right effort on the right projects, focusing on business growth, not busy-ness growth.
- Speed: Speed to ask for help, speed to implementation and speed to learning what works and what doesn’t.
- Trust: We know that trust must be both earned and desired on both sides of every relationship.
- Celebration: We celebrate every success, no matter how big or small. Our wins and learnings are the foundation on which we build ourselves, our company and our lives.
- Transparency: To be honest with ourselves and to others. To ask a question when something is unclear. To admit we don’t know the answer.
- As-ising: Calling things as they are. To air grievances and frustrations when the exist in the spirit of building stronger relationships and better outcomes. To show gratitude when help is provided.
- Better: We may never be perfect, but we can always improve. Finished is the enemy of done.
- Forgiveness: We are human. We make mistakes. We forgive each other.
- Acceptance: Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn. We accept the consequences — both positive and negative — from our decisions and actions.
- Presence: If we’re here, let’s be here.
