Most startups fail because they are not able to sell a product profitably and at scale.
Camp Everest is a 10-week course that will teach you how to get early customers and create a repeatable process for customer acquisition.
Hustle Fund's program is a perfect way to organize ourselves before entering a growth phase. Their classes, like the B2B Landing Page workshop, gave us tactical learnings that we could immediately apply to our marketing and sales strategies. And by working with other founders throughout the program, we built a community to help us brainstorm new ideas.
The holistic approach challenged us to not only to rethink our marketing and sales strategy but also to integrate new ad platforms or new channels. Besides that, conversations during the sessions both with the Hustle team and the cohort were really valuable to me. I want to highlight the curated materials sent before each session: really great!
Hustle Fund's marketing program provided a very complete overview of different marketing channels, and pushed us to experiment. One of our experiments generated amazing results and led to a 5x increase in conversions per $. Without Hustle Fund's encouragement and guidance we would have probably delayed these crucial marketing experiments for many months.
Camp Everest is a 10-week virtual bootcamp that teaches marketing and sales fundamentals for aspiring tech founders.

If I do this, will I get funding from Hustle Fund or have a better chance to pitch the Fund?
→ Pitches to the fund are reviewed by our investment team, while this program is run by our education team. Camp Everest is a program for founder's own personal development, rather than investment.
Additionally, this program will not cover fundraising tips, and we do not presume that you are aiming to be a venture backed business.
