Tech startup mentoring
Update: I'm not coaching at the moment (trekking in India until beginning of July). Follow me on Twitter (@bigyahu) and request Coachy sessions now for early July. Lesson outline: I'll customise this class to you — what's bothering you most about your startup right now? What keeps you up at night? Feedback from past participants: "Your advice has saved me lots of time, effort and energy." "It's fantastic being able to access experts such as yourself with such vast business and startup knowledge and first hand experience through the Coachy site. It will help people like myself avoid making obvious mistakes." "I will shelve the business plan and financials and get outside validating customer wants, needs, benefits and willingness to buy at what price points." "I can't believe one of the simple approaches you mentioned that I overlooked: Letterdrop 1000 DL flyers and track number of enquiries and conversions."
