What is Start:XYZ ?

Our goal is to give you the customer network and accountability you need to validate your ideas and take the next step.

Program Format

Start:XYZ programs typically run for approximately three months and consist of 4-5 founders. We understand that every founder's schedule is unique, so we offer a flexible time commitment that includes ad hoc 1:1 chats (both in-person and asynchronous text) and scheduled peer group meetings.
