Company Summary

We help rigorously validate and improve startup ideas, build and launch "version one" of the product, and recruit a team to scale the business. In exchange for equity, we work at a steeply reduced rate. This means that you need to have some seed financing, or be willing to raise it. Also, your team must be in Cincinnati or willing to travel/relocate.
