Teaching Startup has provided tons of value to me over the past seven months. It serves as a reminder to work on getting better, not just working harder. It's actionable. It's like mentoring, it adds value in the same way.
J.G. -- Future Startup Founder

Testimonial #7

Over the last year, I encountered so many questions building my startup, for which I just could not get a black or white answer. Consequently, these questions were unsolved and nagging on me. With TeachingStartup I got good answers to a lot of those questions. Also seeing that other startups have the same questions helps a lot to build my self-confidence. Lastly, the answers are really helpful because you go deeper within your answers and you uncover the real problem. This makes the answers much more credible and valuable.
