After a lifetime of years, creating businesses for ourselves, within corporations, and "without a net" in the wild wild world of tech startup founder-land, we decided to help others create startups. But we realized that being a successful entrepreneur doesn't mean you can help others start companies.
So we started learning and practicing helping other founders. We learned and tested at Georgia Tech, ATDC, Emory and private startup accelerators, across a broad variety of startup founders and business sectors, we experienced great learning and after a while, a high level of success.
But that wasn't good enough for us. Helping elites at elite accelerator programs is too small for us - What about everyone else? How do we help them? The answer is North Georgia Innovation.
We're excited to take our elite evidenced-based startup program out of universities and elite tech accelerators to the much bigger world of startups, maybe like yours. Our startup process is designed to empower your team and outfit them with the early-stage startup tools they need to improve their chance of success.
Maybe we can teach you how to build your startup on a more solid evidence-based foundation? It takes your hard work and better techniques.
Why do so many startups fail? The numbers are staggering. Success doesn't look like 1 in 10, or 1 in 100. Only 1 in a 1,000 are successful. We wanted to know why?
After years of research at Georgia Tech, Emory, Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) and working with hundreds of startups, we've found that many of the biggest mistakes are at the very beginning. And they are avoidable.
We discovered that there isn't one right path, but there are many wrong paths. So, we decided to focus on startup reliability and created, documented and tested in the real high-stakes startup world, a new early stage startup process. The result: we created an evidence-based startup process that can be taught. It can be life changing for founders and their startups.
The great news is North Georgia Innovation in Blue Ridge can help you prosper in place.
If you want to build before you find a solid business, we are not the place for you. We decelerate, so you can accelerate.
Business mentors are key but they need to understand startups. Startups are not businesses, they are ideas in search of a business model. Our approach uses innovative tools honed and hardened through research and real-world practice. There are a lot of startup accelerators, incubators, co-working spaces, and veterans willing to tell you their war stores or build your startup.
We're different. We have war stories, and experiences, too. But we understand startup process, and help you discover evidence-based startup knowledge that will help you create a solid foundation for your business.
