Who we are

Effective founder and scale-up coaching requires a different set of skills and language than traditional executive coaching. Our team comprises coaches, mentors and advisors who combine high levels of coaching expertise with lived experience in the start-up, scale-up and investment worlds. 

We count among our team former founders, COOs and tech leaders as well as vastly experienced entrepreneur and team coaches. We understand how founders and their stakeholders think, and we work with them in a way they understand and value.


We have a deep affection for founders and the unique combination of skill, mindset and motivation that makes someone want to start their own business. We also have a profound understanding of the challenges founders, and their teams, face as they attempt to scale.

We have coached over 1000 founders and/or their teams.
