Building a startup takes a toll.
It’s a toll felt every day by everyone, from founders to new hires. The stakes are high, and so is the pressure.
Especially after raising money.
Because with every round raised, targets go up, the team gets bigger, and everyone has to grow in their role just to keep it.
It’s no wonder that teammates new and old push harder, and often in different directions.
Revenue vs. culture
Build vs. buy
Scale vs. streamline
Focus vs. innovate
Local vs. remote
Let’s face it, startups are stressful.
And in the face of great stress, and ultra-high hopes, every startup is left with a choice.
Cope with the stress… or grow with it.
Unfortunately, most startup leaders choose poorly. They choose to cope. But only because they don’t know how to do the alternative.
Well we’ve found a way.
Not a solution to startup stress, but the secret to harnessing it.
After a decade in startups, and dozens of raises, we’ve learned a method for turning startup stress into powerfully productive teamwork.
And you can learn it too.
This is why we built Startwise, to share our secrets with startup founders, people leaders, and the teams they build.
Let’s stop trying to cope, and let’s start growing smarter every day.
