The Startup Science Mission
To help startups design their success, 1 founder at a time.
Why? Because wealth inequality is directly tied to entrepreneurship. 95% of people who get out of check-to-check living do so by selling a business.
It started with researching why, how, and when startups fail. We did 1,200 interviews and spent months reading the research to understand the 90% failure rate. We learned that founders keep making the same mistakes and these mistakes can be avoided. And the problems that lead to these mistakes center around people, knowledge, and financial resources.
Accelerators are designed to help startups solve these problems. But only 2% of startups who apply, are accepted into accelerators. 60% of rejected founders “failed to complete the application due to lack of knowledge.” And 70% of those startups who are accepted, came through a referral. So if you don’t know the language or are not connected into the ecosystem already your chances are slim.
Simple, Yet Powerful, Products
Pre-Accelerator & Academy
Teach founders the methodologies and frameworks to clearly communicate with accelerators and investors.
Accelerators, universities, incubators, and investors can educate founders and allow them to put their best foot forward. Instead of referrals, we believe the future is data driven.
The Gravity Ecosystem
Founders connect with investors, accelerators, incubators, pitch events, communities, and product discounts required in their journey.
Not a product, but the center of everything we do. It's a business methodology focused on early-stage startups providing a framework designed to achieve a successful exit.
