Develop your founder skills and build a world-class business
We put all of our energy into helping you and your co-founders gain the skills and develop the practices and systems that will enable you to become a ruthlessly efficient startup team.
Why? Ideas are a dime a dozen and even startups that raise billions of dollars fail. Execution is everything.
If you believe, like we do, that becoming a more skilled and effective founder team increases your startup’s likelihood of success, get in touch with us.
Grow your startup by focusing on product, marketing, and fundraising
In the earliest stages, the key goal of every startup is to build a great product and sell it to the right customer. Unfortunately, many promising startups get this wrong; 4 of the top 10 reasons why startups fail are related to poor product-market fit. Our academy helps startups hone in on product-market fit by providing daily tailored coaching to identify the perfect customer, find an effective way to market to them, and deliver a superior solution.
Working alongside our experts coaches over 6 intensive months
Founders that are admitted to Beta Boom’s Startup Academy work alongside a team of expert product, marketing and fundraising coaches every day for six intensive months.
The target outcomes of the program are to hone in on your startup’s product-market fit, find one or more viable and scalable marketing channels, and get your company in tip-top shape for successful fundraising.
What you can expect in a typical day at Beta Boom’s Startup Academy
Our goals each day are to get your team started in the right direction, help you implement practices and systems to keep you moving fast, and build vital startup skills through practice rather than lecture. Beta Boom coaches do this through daily working sessions with your team.
One day you might be working with your product coach review recording of users interacting with your app to identify potential usability issues. On another day, your marketing coach might help you set up campaigns, ad groups, and ads on Facebook and A/B test ad copy. Meanwhile, your fundraising coach might dive into a spreadsheet model to explore how different caps and discounts on a convertible note will affect your ownership share in your company.
What you can expect in a typical week at Beta Boom’s Venture Academy
Everything at Beta Boom happens in weekly SCRUM sprints that begin on Monday and end on Friday. A typical week looks something like this:
Monday: Group workshops; sprint planning with your head coach.
Tuesday-Thursday: Daily check-ins and working sessions with your coaches; run marketing experiments and make product enhancements; talk to and survey prospective and current customers; executive coaching sessions.
Friday: Sprint review and retrospective with your head coach; happy hour and group retrospective to share best practices.
