We help early stage founders scale their business

Startup Discovery School helps tech and tech enabled founders to get results.

We are an online programme delivered by founders, mentors and investors aimed at enabling first-time founders from all backgrounds to scale their businesses.

Helping founders prove their value before pitching to investors

We believe high-quality founders can be found anywhere, but the skills and networks available to first-time founders aren’t easily accessible.

At Startup discovery school we are disrupting the notion that only the privileged or most well connected can succeed in entrepreneurship.
