How we coach
We love to give individual feedback while providing frameworks and templates. Our startups are faster with this double-approach. However, sometimes there are questions left or there is feedback needed. A coaching session is held online for 90-120 minutes. You bring your challenge, existing material and we work through it together. You will be challenged, get feedback, new frameworks, and support, as well as your list of improvement areas and to-dos to get to the next level.
“A big thank you for your workshop “Debunking the investor process” in our Accelerator programme at Gateway. It was an absolute highlight for me this year. Especially the concept of “Rich or King” will accompany me from now on.”
