Alex Giannikoulis

Founder & General Partner
Graphene Ventures

Starting a business is more of a challenge than any ambitious founder initially expects. Building and growing that business without a proper framework multiplies that challenge.

Startup Rocket provides a structured approach for founders to quickly test and refine their ideas. The service they provide is valuable and thorough.

Some founders that ask for money aren't prepared and that sucks for everyone. Those that go through Startup Rocket at least have a carefully constructed financial model and have locked down efficient product and growth operations.

If you're an early-stage founder, Startup Rocket can help guide you through everything you need to know to build the foundation for a winning business, whether you decide to raise money or bootstrap.

One thing that trips up many early stage companies is figuring out what will make a successful business, beyond just having a great idea.

Startup Rocket helps new founders by giving clear frameworks to test and refine their idea early on, saving time and money before doing expensive or unnecessary work that will have to be redone or discarded later. The service truly provides a boost to young startups by giving their business a better engine.

About

Startup Rocket was birthed out of the frustration of re-inventing the wheel every time we, the partners and advisors behind Prota Ventures, started validating a new idea, building a team, launching a product, and accelerating a business to a place where it made sense to raise outside capital.

On the other side of the table, it also came out of countless conversations with early stage founders seeking to land their first significant round of funding.

Not surprisingly, there are a common set of mistakes that most founders make that are avoidable with the right framework and coaching.   Read more »
