We find that founders do an immense amount of information gathering, and the process of becoming proficient in all areas of running a business — sales, onboarding, support, hiring, user experience, lead generation — takes valuable time away from growing the business. Our program helps SaaS founders scale their businesses faster by giving them the support, answers, and accountability they need, when they need it.
