We’ll help you to avoid the biggest pitfalls of tech startup and agency founders and to accelerate your path to success


You want to build a successful tech startup or agency and know some of this too well:

You don’t know how and where to start
You want but can’t leave your annoying corporate job
You have no product idea - or you have too many of them
You don’t have a co-founder and struggle to find one
Your value proposition is not sharp enough – or you have none
Your customer profile is too vague
You love your product but you’re the only one, so far
You don’t know how to build the product you envisage
You have no clue how to market and sell your product
You don’t know how to attract investors

We’ll enable you to transform your startup idea holistically with:

A plan to validate your idea
A plan to escape your corporate job
A strategy to find the right co-founder
A clear value proposition
A plan to get to product-market fit
A focused go-to-market strategy
An effective product development roadmap
A unique market positioning
A path to VC funding
The right foundations for your next scaling phase
The right mindset
Happy Founders

André Eiras dos Santos

Co-Founder Sword Health

"Iskender's operational help in business building and scaling is beyond valuable. There is a reason why we wanted him to join our seed round as angel investor – despite being fully oversubscribed. Besides his deep expertise he is and always was a super trustful partner for us on our journey.”

Jennifer Phan

Co-Founder Passionfroot

"Iskender's 360 degree knowledge is a blessing for every founder. On top of that, he has an A+ network in the tech scene that will open important doors for you."

"Iskender was a key person for me in every stage of my startup's lifecycle: ideation, co-founder matching and team building, foundation, product development, go to market, commercial strategy, and even exit processes. He was my most important ally as a first time founder. Without him, our startup wouldn't have existed and wouldn't have been so successful."
