Not Your Average Startup Training
We know there's a lot at stake. That's why we created tiered solutions for every budget (including no budget), so that whether you're at the very beginning or ready to scale, we can meet you where you're at.
Startup Resources for Every Budget
Why Our Training?
Earlier in my life as a founder, I had to learn tons of new business skills and own dozens of unfamiliar tasks. I eagerly sought knowledge from many smart people, but was often frustrated because the content was disorganized, not applicable, overly general, lacked implementation detail (making it un-actionable), or came from people who had never truly tasted both success and failure in building their own startup. We fixed these problems with the following:
Improves learning by 400%. No one learns calculus from a fireside chat.
About Your Instructor
Sam Wong is a five-time startup executive (1x CEO, 1x CTO, 3x Tech VP) with three successful exits.
Sam has led multiple business and technical functions, crafting both strategic direction and tactical implementation — which makes him well-qualified to address the many-faceted needs of a startup. Sam strives to build clear, detailed, actionable content, which is why our training is very visual and includes ready-to-use tools. Sam is:

- A Well-Spoken Coach: popular event speaker with consistently strong audience feedback
- A Published Author: one book on startup execution (with a second in the works)
Individual & Group Coaching
Many founders repeatedly practice an imperfect framework or process. We know that watching a video or reading a blog about how Michael Phelps trains won’t make you an Olympic swimmer.
Our individual and group coaching helps founders build best practices into their startup.
Coaching often helps founders…
✔ Avoid costly and fatal errors
✔ Improve funding terms
✔ Accelerate fundraising
✔ Reduce legal fees
✔ Reduce founder stress
✔ Increase your likelihood of success

More Testimonials on Our Content and Services:
"Hard to understand concepts are broken down into layman’s terms so that even first time founders (like me) can understand it. I’ve been searching for an entrepreneur’s road map but haven’t found one anywhere online … until now."
"Great Insights from a “been there, done that” founder turned advisor. Sam has some really great frameworks for logically derisking your business in the most effective order."
CEO, Venture Validator
"Full of practical guidance with tons of specific examples that are easy to understand and apply. Detailed coverage of important topics such as MVP, valuation, exit strategies, and balancing family and friends in the midst of heavy startup stress."
"As an advisor to our company, Sam’s technical depth, business breadth and clear, methodical approach has proven first-hand his expertise at startup execution. Our only regret is not having him as an advisor earlier."
"Sam can be defined as a Dedicated, Determined, and Brilliant mentor and advisor … The advice was given in a manner that any inexperienced person can understand. He goes above and beyond to make sure no stone is left unturned even if it means to add extra hours of his time."
"Practical, Personal and Poignant! … Excellent advice on topics ranging from financial planning to mental health. Clear, crisp explanations and examples."
Author, Slicing Pie
Don’t Ignore the Savings in Legal Fees!
Several of our training classes cover key concepts that founders usually learn during a billable meeting with their startup attorney. Founders who learn these concepts in advance can reduce their legal bills and focus their legal spend on higher-value legal matters.
With partner-level billing rates, saving just 1 hour in legal fees can pay for the entire Pro training!
Get Started Today
As a former founder, I knew there had to be a better way to help entrepreneurs succeed.
I hate seeing founders make huge decisions after watching a 20-minute video, only to realize months or years later that their pre-mature, ill-informed decision cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars. I built these training courses to convey important best practices in an affordable package to startup founders. My hourly consulting rate is similar to a partner at a midsize law firm, so teaching the content live in a coaching session can deplete a startup’s cash or equity resources. Our online training preserves startup resources for higher value advisory work.
I'm committed to helping founders, so we created the four offer tiers below to help you whether you're just getting started or deep into your venture.
Recap: What's actually included in each package?
Many training classes provide information on what to do and why, but very few focus on how. Don’t let your newly acquired knowledge remain only an idea sitting in your head. We help you take real-world action with purpose-built, ready-to-use templates with our training. Our training class includes walk throughs on how to use the color-by-numbers tools included.
A low-cost annual subscription for early-stage founders to learn high level concepts and get valuable feedback through Group Coaching.
An affordable one-time payment to lay a strong foundation built on core topics, with an option for 1:1 coaching when you need extra support. Includes lifetime access to all current & future Pro classes.
A one-time payment for high-value advanced courses bundled with 6 individual coaching sessions. Includes lifetime access to all current & future classes.

Hard Work Ahead! ⚠
DISCLAIMER: Startups are hard. They require a ton of skill, expertise, and commitment. We don’t believe in quick hacks or simple tips and tricks that purport to bring success. There is no “get rich quick” method to building a company. Even with great training and tools, most startups still run a very high risk of failure. Many startup variables such as the team, timing, idea, business model, funding, and your ability to work hard and persevere can have a dramatic impact on your success.
Fundable Startups is designed to provide support and guidance to help entrepreneurs move forward faster and better. But we cannot and do not guarantee any specific outcome from our ideas, information, training, or tools. We worked very hard to execute well and achieve our results in our previous startups and cannot guarantee similar results, as there are many factors beyond our control. Examples and scenarios are illustrative only, or represent past results that have no bearing or promise on future performance.
Fundable Startups, Execution Matters, LLC, and our coaches or instructors provide any and all resources and tools as-is with all faults and without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including any warranty of merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose.
