IF YOU’RE READY, WE’VE BEEN WAITING
Expert Support at Every Stage of Your Startup
Helping you nurture and refine your concepts, turning dreams into actionable plans. And, yes, we can work with napkin notes.
Connecting you with the right tools, resources, mentorship and funding opportunities to develop your idea into a product. And the coffee you need to fuel it.
Providing the marketing and logistical support to introduce your product to the market and debut successfully – without the “am I forgetting anything?!” insomnia.
Standing by your side with scalable solutions and guidance so you can expand your reach and impact. Don’t worry, we try not to be too much of a backseat driver.
Offering strategic advice and assistance in valuation, negotiation, and transtion to support you through the sale or merger (so you can go ahead and get started on that next idea you’ve got written on that napkin there).
“In the development of our app, we were lacking a business plan. Monica and her team are continuing to coach us through the process of taking our idea to a fully developed business. We feel like Sprocket is not just a place that can help us in the development of our mobile app, but also help us develop it into a business.”
