Start-Up Starters: Achieve success by focusing on what matters By Tijs Besieux Cover Image


The strength and quality of a start-up are determined by the strength and quality of the founding team. Start-up Starters is a toolkit that is designed to help founding team members achieve remarkable performance by focusing on what matters. The kit consists of 68 cards that are divided into three categories: micro-challenges, prompts and dilemmas that are meant to challenge alignment, strengthen ties, and ultimately build a better startup.

The game is played by all founding members. Every founder gets 5 cards. Taking turns, every founder chooses one card to put on the table. Work with that card before putting the next card on the table, and so on. Play as many rounds as you feel, depending on time and energy.

Playing Start-up Starters results in more clarity about the role of the founding team, as well as actionable feedback and relentless client focus. The game is underpinned by a decade of coaching hundreds of start-ups, ground-breaking scientific studies and validated by highly successful founding teams. In short, a game changer for start-ups!

* Invaluable toolkit for startups.

* Learn how you as a founding team can foster a growth culture where people thrive.

* Exciting card game with quotes to inspire dialogue, dilemma's to challenge alignment and exercises to strengthen ties and build a better startup.
