Beating bad advice.

The majority of startups fail in their first year. While this is mostly due to lack of funding (sales and/or investment) it is very often simply due to bad advice. A lot of advisors, VCs and incubators who have never started their own business, while they may understand what happens in a startup, they have not experienced it day-to-day first hand.

Founders need good quality, experienced based mentoring from those that have faced the same pain they are facing. If we can get that failure rate down by 20% that would have a significant effect on employment and the economy as startups grow into SMEs who are spenders, renters and employers.

A Content & Media Network for Startups.

  • Not all startups can have access to experienced mentors with that first hand experience
  • Founder’s Voice uses podcasting + video to replicate the one-on-one engagement with a mentor
  • Most startups have challenges around similar issues – sales, marketing, staff, finance and cash flow
  • Our team of mentors are all ex business owners
  • Our podcast is global – the same issues happen to startups regardless of whether they are in Melbourne, Manchester or Missouri
