Is there something you want to build?

Get virtual ☕️ with a partner. You'll get immediate feedback whether we work together or not.

Are we a fit?

We've defined a collaborative relationship with our clients.

How can we start a project together?

Successful partnerships are based on understanding, alignment and commitment.

Prior to starting a new project, we have usually met with our clients 1 - 3 times. We try to understand your current setup, traction, maturity of product-market fit, financial projections, and anything that will help us understand your vision, while getting to know the team.

During this time, we are transparent with sharing opportunities we discover, and the scope of our partnership. It's your chance to determine if it's the right time for you to focus on product growth. Schedule your first chat now.

How much do projects usually cost?

It depends. We don't do one-size-fits-all pricing. We usually start with a fixed hourly or weekly rate. We also have worked with partners with a hybrid cash and equity or equity only payment plan.

Generally we advise our partners to limit the project scope first. We start lean, and can discuss scaling up the project once certain foundations are laid.

What sectors do you specialize in?

Our approach is sector agnostic. We are comfortable tackling problems in most internet-driven businesses. Our partners have extensive B2C, B2B and D2C experience, across a wide range of sizes including company founding, seed stage, growth stage and unicorn stage. We are also supported by a trusted specialist network with deeper channel and industry know-how.

What does the timeline of a project look like?

Each project timeline depends on your objectives, expected outcomes and budget. We don't usually set a fixed timeline upfront. However we suggest to expect a project to last no less than 4 months.

After a project successfully wraps, we will continue to support onboarding team leads and team members. While we are happy to stay on as an advisor to management, we believe in putting in the right product growth leaders full-time as the best way to guarantee your long term success.
