Get Focused
and Accelerate.

Old School fuels next stage growth for early-stage and scaling startups through deeply hands on strategic support.



In the '80s and '90s no one knew what an entrepreneur was. You went to college to learn a profession and started at the bottom and worked your way to the top of an organization. You were rewarded for loyalty. And the CEO was more like the Wizard in the Wizard of Oz.

Fast forward to today and everyone has the opportunity to be an entrepreneur. The barriers to entry are low - you simply need an idea and a few hundred dollars to get started. The average startup only needs $3,000 to get started.

The Problem

Startup entrepreneurs are more likely to have their startup be their first job. This means that they have no experience working in a business let alone leading a business. 

The failure rate of a startup is about 90% in the first five years of operations. At least one quarter of those startups fail because of lack of strategy and team.
