Problems we address:



Overwhelming Failure Statistics that are program helps avoid
The entrepreneurial landscape is hyper-competitive and global. Only the most sophisticated teams see their targeted upsides become real. Too many are unfortunate to realize large opportunity costs and run out of time. Few of these statistics and facts are:


  • 90%+ Companies fail to be successful due to the lack of a team, execution and funding
  • 95% patents never get commercialized, leading to huge innovation waste
  • 98% Venture Capital deals get rejected or are never looked at due to lack of quality. Investors want to see solid businesses, not just pretty pitch decks.
  • 70% – 80% of entrepreneurs thinking of going to the US are not sufficiently prepared or lack data as they define their go to market and investor strategies
  • Expertise gained over decades in sophisticated and mature ecosystems such as Boston can be very difficult to access for entrepreneurs in less mature or emerging ecosystems. We help with this online program ensure that entrepreneurs are fully prepared before making a trip in such environment to maximize their chances of ROI.
  • 80% of Venture Capitalist report an interest in investing in foreign companies that fit their investment needs as these can deliver lower initial valuations and higher returns
Online for teams to participate their locations
Innouvo has designed the most comprehensive online program for startup teams and their investors serious about building their business. Here is why:


  • Founders and CEOs need to be head down focused on their business priorities and maximize their time. The online program allows for just that. No commute. Meetings are held during convenient hours for the startup teams.
  • Collective learning and intra-group networking with peers of international entrepreneurs facilitated by technology, webconferences, private groups, messengers and other tools.
  • Entrepreneurs in Boston have an immense advantage (access to expertise, venture capital, exposure to latest trends) but not everyone can dedicate the time or budget to come to Boston especially for a long enough time to get all the benefits from such experience. The online program allows entrepreneurs to get the most value while significantly reducing the risks and financial burden.
  • Many entrepreneurs from around the world come to Boston. Often unprepared, these entrepreneurs end up learning the hard way seeing avoidable rejection and feeling humiliated. This program will ensure total preparation for such trips and maximize extensively the chances of seeing a ROI and meeting business objectives.
