Square One Startup School to Showcase Largest Cohort To-Date

After announcing its fifth cohort of stellar founders just a few weeks ago, Square One Startup School is gearing up to showcase their hard work.

Surthrive launched Square One Startup School, a training program designed to help pre-product and pre-revenue startup founders validate and transform their ideas into profitable businesses, a little over two years ago and their graduates are making significant headway.  The school has graduated 25+ startup founders who have collectively raised over $5M in capital and are generating over $100K in monthly recurring revenue.

Startup Showcase

The virtual event will be October 13 and will showcase the work of the participating founders. The evening will include live demos, short 3-minute pitches, networking and an expo.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to connect prior to the event through a speed networking session.
