Building a startup is part science and part art. Startup Rocket provides frameworks to take the best learnings from hundreds of startups and apply them to YOUR business so that you can focus on innovation and creating a product that customers will love. Working with Startup Rocket will reduce time to market, decrease costs, and increase chances of success.
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.
Coaching & Online Collaboration
Leverage operational frameworks that are unique and customizable to your business model. Collaborate with your team, build your product, and accelerate growth.
You also have the option to take your business to the next level by receiving coaching from experienced entrepreneurs and industry experts.
Whether starting a software or hardware startup - as an experienced founder or new to the process - Startup Rocket enables you to customize your framework and modules to fit your needs.
The sections and modules of each framework have been optimized based on the feedback of thousands of founders working through the pre-funding / pre-accelerator phases of early stage startup operations.
Community & Learning Resources
Gain access to an extensive network of founders and investors, learn about best practices in the industry, and prep to land your first round of funding.
Founders planning to bootstrap and not raise outside money will also gain tremendous value from the Startup Rocket framework, resources, web application, and community.
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 »
Bringing an idea to life takes a small army, and even then, things slip through the cracks. Startup Rocket keeps things focused, moving, and excellent - their framework and community are incredible resources for any new team or company.
Startup Rocket is an absolute game changer and helped us scale Rapchat to over 70,000+ monthly active users. I'd recommend jumping on board when you are building your initial team, launching a product, and/or raising your first round of capital.
If I had the resources provided by Startup Rocket before I launched, I would have saved tens of thousands of dollars and months of headaches. Stoked to see them sharing this with the world!
I’ve worked with the team behind Startup Rocket on several startups. They are a force that brings energy, connections, and solid guidance to any project.
