More on sustaining founders

Model now is starving recent college graduates who need investor funding to pay bills and scale up their startups. Power is at the angels and VCs who hold the money and pitches are basically elaborate loan applications.

What if we pursued a more viable option: help founders create businesses that sustain them while also freeing them most of their hours to work on their own product ideas? And keep investors in the game for longer term courting as needed for startups to scale.

Ideals models?

  1. Consulting jobs that generate income now.
  2. Help create revenue generating businesses with minimal time commitment.
  3. SSG community to vet product ideas and team building for future co-founders.
