[UPDATED] Are you interested in an accountability team for ambitious startup founders?
Shared by kakinokimasato.com · 16d ago · 6 comments

I organise a team for founders who understand the startup way of thinking and are givers. We progress towards our grand goals together.

Pain:
The group sessions on Pioneer or Startup School work fine to improve our elevator pitch, but it's not well structured to boost our progress towards our goals. I often wonder if I am wasting time by attending the group session

Solution:
Join our 15-min weekly audio group calls designed to efficiently boost your learning results as a founder. By attending the group calls, your progress will be recoded automatically and shared among the team.

The 15-minute call is designed to focus on each member's goal, progress and next step along with a progress table. The participants can choose to stay for additional 15 minutes. The obstacles and topics from the first 15 minutes will be discussed.

Current team members are from:
UK
Japan
Netherlands
The Gambia
Indonesia
New York

If you're interested in trying how it works, drop me an email simply saying 'Interested in Founders Talk'.

Best,
Masa

group session ... it's not well structured to boost our progress towards our goals

What, specifically is wrong with the current discussions? You can pretty much drive them any way you like, as a participant, to get focused feedback.

understand the startup way of thinking

I have only the vaguest idea what you mean by that. I've been a founder twice, worked for other startups and been studying it for years. There's no one startup way of thinking - that's about as useful a categorisation as European way or African way as startups vary wildly depending on their access to capital, mentorship, founder's backgrounds and society surrounding them.

Thanks a lot for your constructive comment, Andy.

I occasionally find myself listening to irrelevant stuff for more than 20 minutes.

What I mean by 'the startup way of thinking' is simply to differentiate it from the big company way of thinking. Please kindly teach me if there's a better way to convey my intention.

Feel free to shoot me any other questions. Let me know if you'd like to try it out.

Hey Masa! How does your weekly check-in boost your progress compared to the group sessions you're used to?

Thank you, weaver.

Our check-in does not help people improve their pitch. If they want to improve their pitch, they should attend Pioneer or Startup School group sessions.
