At Startup Distillery I don’t do it for you, I do it with you — combining your vision with my expertise.
Quality is critical, yet time is of the essence where ideas are concerned. That’s why I only work with a limited number of clients at any given time.
1. Startup bootcamp
2. Proven pitch techniques
I teach you how to pitch your business — no matter how technical — to investors and customers in a way that’s engaging, clear and persuasive.
3. Candid feedback
I wouldn’t be helping if we only focused on the bright side, so I always give it to you straight. I point out weak assumptions and gaps, and work with you to resolve them.
4. On-call expertise
You’ll have my decades of experience at your complete disposal (you wouldn’t be the first to put me on speed dial). A Wharton degree and years of proven startup expertise informs all the strategies and guidance I share with you.
5. Ready (for anything)
Not sure if your business idea makes sense? Need help growing the business you’ve got? I’ll help you take your idea and break it down into manageable, bite-size pieces.
My Advising Program is designed for entrepreneurs like you who are at one of four stages:
- You’ve got an idea and need help getting started.
- You’ve got a business plan but need help bringing it to life.
- You’ve hit a plateau and need an effective growth strategy.
- Things aren’t going as planned and you need to pivot to a more profitable business model.
I make it easy for us to work together by offering a low-risk trial that works like this:
For a $500 flat fee, we’ll work together for a spell. That way, you and I can get to know each other. You’ll get valuable guidance from a seasoned advisor, while I learn about your dream so I can help you bring it to life as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Need to raise funds? When it comes to pitching your business, the ability to tell a compelling story is key. Facts tell, but it’s the stories that sell.
Startup Distillery knows what it takes to persuade investors (or any audience, for that matter). So I make sure my clients have both the story and the facts to back it up. A knack for making complex concepts easy to understand doesn’t hurt either.
Developing an irresistible pitch involves three parts. I’m ready to help you with one, two or all three:
- Slide deck
At Startup Distillery you get more than a business plan. You get one-on-one strategic advice that becomes your personal startup bootcamp. I guide. I explain. I critique. Together we’ll develop your vision into a roadmap for launching a growing business.
Custom plans include narrative, financial projections and executive summary. Slide decks and pitches are available as add-ons at discounted rates.
