Startup Skill Set

The Startup Skill Set is a unique program developed by MCP, which builds up core entrepreneurial skills in startups. Startup founders often think that they can build a successful business even if they are lacking the skills in these areas. However, a skilled entrepreneur will achieve success more often than an unskilled entrepreneur, who is likely to fail even with a brilliant idea. Anyway, we have verified many times over that these skills will help you and your startup succeed. In addition, we always tailor the startup skill set to your specific needs and ensure that the focus is on your goals, objectives, and culture.

What Are Startups?

Startup = Growth

A startup is a company designed to grow fast. Being newly founded does not in itself make your company a startup. Nor does taking venture funding or have some sort of "exit." These are of course all desirable outcomes for a startup but they all follow up the only essential thing for startups - growth. And the good news is that if you have growth, everything else tends to fall into place. For a company to grow really big, it must (a) make something many people want and (b) make those people customers. Most businesses are tightly constrained in (a) or (b). The distinctive feature of successful startups is that they're not.

Ideas First

Every startup was created around a great idea. An idea that solves a problem and is something novel, or something that everyone has overlooked, or something that solves a problem in a different way. People trying to solve their own problems come up with the best ideas. This holds true for all ideas whether they are bootstrapped or backed by loads of money. The key differentiator between the two is that bootstrapped startup ideas need to start making money sooner than venture backed businesses. However, both bootstrapped and backed startups will face the inevitable growth spur and will need to be prepared.

Building Up

As a startup company, you want to make sure you are reaching those people whose problem you solved. And you want to make sure that there is many of them. Your goal is to reach as many customers as possible in the shortest amount of time. Weather you operate in large markets with a lot of competition or in small markets with fewer customers, it is important that you are prepared to meet demand when it starts picking up. This means you need to be able to quickly adjust by scaling up production, operations, and company size.

Facing Challenges

We, at Mentor Coach Partners, recognize that with growth there come challenges; challenges that founders are often unprepared for. That is why we start working with you from very early stages to ensure that you and your employees acquire the skills necessary for staying on top of your expanding business. You can focus on developing your ideas while we focus on making sure you are prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.
