Research shows that most early stage entrepreneurs
face 3 big barriers to success

#1 Self-Doubt

Self-doubt will make you question your vision and choices. It can eat away at your ability to make progress and color your experience with negativity.

#2 Loneliness

For many early stage entrepreneurs, working from home is the only option. You pour your heart and soul into your work, but it can be a lonely and isolating experience.

#3 Accountability

Entrepreneurs often have incredible ideas but lack accountability and structure. It can be easy to get caught up in the small day-to-day tasks of running a business, and lose sight of the big vision.

Our solution to these barriers is asupportive startup community!
