Being an entrepreneur isn’t easy -- we know, we’ve been there. Even if this isn’t your first time starting a company, we can all use a little help along the way. And while there is a ton of quality content out there to guide you, we think that most of it is missing a few things:
- A non-prescriptive, framework-based approach that teaches you how to think (and not just what to do) about the problems and challenges you will face.
- A community built around the needs of entrepreneurs - by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs - where mutual support and open-source knowledge allow the community to succeed, together.
So in 2012, Startup Secrets was born. We started out as a workshop series with the Harvard Innovation Lab, fostering entrepreneurship in our local Boston community. But our dream was always to grow, and to share our knowledge with everyone, everywhere, for free.
Over the next five years, our founder, Michael Skok, developed the Startup Secrets workshops with the help of successful entrepreneurs and venture capitalists behind major companies like Unidesk, Hubspot, Google, and more. With dozens of years of experience behind our workshops, we've distilled all the important information so that you can have a leg up in your own startup.
Today, Startup Secrets is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free, flexible, quality education to entrepreneurs everywhere. We're working on bringing new lessons, new content, and new features to you every day.
