Startup Pre-Accelerator:
Idea to MVP in 4 weeks

⚑ Move lightening fast with intense focus
🧠 Learn from founders and experts with experience
🎯 Hit the growth targets that guarantee success

I just wanted to take this chance to tell how great I think this program has been. I’ve done the online Y Combinator Startup School back in January and also did a 45 min one on one with Productsurgery.com. The SeedReady experience has been so much more beneficial.

All the time you and your team put into being live during the lectures and then the Friday surgery sessions has helped make the tools and processes so much more tangible and contextualised by experienced entrepreneurs who have used them. It’s been fantastic. Thank you

​Start Faster, Start Now

We use tried and tested, no-nonsense techniques that help you to build a pitch and strategy that is in tune with the industry – enabling you to plan your launch effectively.

Our programme teaches you the key principles to developing your idea, gathering evidence for market viability, and building a solid pitch. 

We developed the pre-accelerator to help entrepreneurs as they build and validate their idea, and early-stage founders as they review and refocus to achieve their goals.

If you are thinking about how to start a business and need some structure and guidance on how to get started this is a perfect course for you, without giving away equity or cash.

Great set of talks and workshops and exercises – I’ve used the social pitch exercise repeatedly. I’m actually going back to complete some of the tasks I didn’t complete at the time – but really impressed

Great content – good visuals, simple language & easy tools. I felt very supported by the whole organizing team – nice advice, availability, and challenging questions. Short & effective sessions spread throughout the week

The moderators, founder friends, cohort and community were all bright, supportive and helpful. Each content ‘module’ was consistent. eg right level of detail, always with a practical, piece of homework which is useful to me afterwards. Also right amount of content/work/time commitment for a 4 week programme.

Thanks so much guys, amazing experience
