infuse your team with founder power

We are senior entrepreneurs bootstrapping our own startup while freelancing for great companies on exciting Venture Building, Product Ops and Go-to-Market projects.


We are not an agency.
We are not innovation consultants.
We are entrepreneurs.

As long-time executive leaders of both startup and corporate endeavours, as well as founders of the Exit3x Venture Studio, we are experts at testing new concepts and risky assumptions in the market.

We have experience building companies and products in a variety of B2B and B2C industries. We are venture architects, operational founders, product creators, business strategists, growth marketers, fundraisers, M&A participants, and team leaders.

We are currently hireable as individual freelancers or as a freelance team for short and mid-term projects in product ops (operations) and go-to-market execution. Bring us into your team... your company, product and the people you lead will benefit from our entrepreneurial perspectives and processes.

We commit to infusing your project with experienced founder power to drive greater momentum towards your goals with speed and measurable success.
