The service helps the team to clarify their potential in creating scalable business and tackle challenges in three key areas: team, idea validation and market. The methods used are based on self-reflection supported by the coach. The process is guided by a self-reflection tool. At the end of the Startup Checklist service the team receives the mentor’s recommendations for next steps. The teams will be coached by Oki Tåg.
