The Nugget Startup Academy

The Why

Within the VC ecosystem fundraising is the single point of failure for 97.4% of founders. We aim to challenge the status quo and promote a better starting point for new founders - which is to bootstrap a side project.

1: Most founders seek funding.
2: Only 2.6% get funded.
3: By bootstrapping a side project, founders blow past the 97.4% single point of failure.
4: Bootstrapping works great for building unicorns too!

At the Academy, over 25% of our founders have won seed customers and are building a real business. Compare that to the 97.4% failure rate of securing investment, and you can see why we are so excited about what we're doing here.
