About Startup secrets to 10x your success

Given the very high failure rates of startups and new products, the best way of minimising that risk is to understand:

The top reasons for failure, and how to avoid them
The cognitive biases that make all of us susceptible to failure
The tools that help you understand the risks and how to avoid them
How to speak to potential customers so that you *really* understand their pains
How to ensure that you’re solving a problem that customers will pay for!


As well as leaving with the above insights, you’ll leave with:

Multiple clear validation tools and techniques
A clear 6-step process that will *massively* reduce your likelihood of failure.
Faster growth and easier sales
You’ll also have a MUCH clearer understanding of how to build a business or product that is many times more likely to succeed than average. Not only in terms of gaining early customers, but raising investment, and being likely to go on to scale.
