While the lion's share of my time goes to Dex.io, I always love getting involved with teaching entrepreneurship, whether directly to founders or via investors and support programs.
“I loved Rob. Really. I have gone to loads of these things and he was incredible because he brought in real/solid/tangible experience without the "I am a god" tone. And the amazing part was he made it easy. He was approachable, flexible and entertaining. Very likeable, very out there.”
“Rob. Fantastic. Your wealth of knowledge is amazing. Love your sense of humour. I would not hesitate to take the course again just to absorb more of Rob.”
“He really really inspired me and I think he made the experience so worth while.”
“I think you're the best startup teacher I've ever seen (and I've been to A. LOT. of events). Nothing but insanely positive feedback from students so far - if you want to run another course, just let me know. Even if not, I'm seriously tempted to just work on packaging your wisdom up into an e-course.”
I like working with the portfolio companies of accelerators, internal innovation teams, and students. My most popular workshops are:
I strive to keep them buzzword-free, hands-on, and full of practical tools and novel case studies.
You can see some of my talks at Dex.io.
Have your teams ever come out of mentoring conversations more confused than they started? That's because they've mashed all the advice together into a single idea. They need idea detox.
I work with half a dozen accelerator & support programs via foundercentric, helping with curriculum design and to catch moments where founders are about to waste weeks.
Let's talk through what you're putting together.
Internal innovation is hard to foster but easy to kill. Our primary goal is to stop killing good ideas, which we'll do by looking at your business' constraints and the four big levers of innovation hygeine: budgeting, reporting, ownership, and speed.
You know your business better than anyone, so we can't tell you what to do. Instead, we'll look at what's working in the startup world and collaborate on figuring out which bits could move the needle for you.
