Too many startups fail, a 90% failure rate sucks. I believe we can do better. Founders succeed with education, connections, and a little help.

White Wall

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.

Application Management

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.

BOSS

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.

The Startup Science Promise

To make our educational academy free for all under-resourced and "not yet connected" founders.

The Stars

“The BOSS system brings clarity of purpose, practical planning, rigorous execution, and continuous improvement.  Were I still in command of a ship, I would recommend it for leaders at every level.”
