We know it's really hard to build a business based on sweat equity alone, and that a little experience goes a long way in helping young companies avoid common pitfalls. HyperStart provides both investment capital and expertise (“Smart Money”) to get startups going.
We work with a number of accelerator programs in New Zealand and overseas with a view to investing in "graduates" of these programs. We also help teams prepare for pitches to other investors or facilitate investment rounds.
Preparing for accelerators and getting investment ready
One of HyperStart's founder and investor Stefan Korn has just published a book on startups as part of the popular "For Dummies" series called Successful Online Start-Ups for Dummies. The book is the perfect companion for accelerator programs and helps entrepreneurs avoid common start-up mistakes. Successful Online Start-Ups for Dummies provides sound advice to develop start up ventures using a proven and tested methodology for selecting business ideas, setting up businesses, accelerating growth and attracting investment.
