IAN PAUL GRAHAMExperienced, Practical Help for Startups and Small Business

I’m a startup coach and consultant. In 2008 I launched my own startup TheCodeFactory a coworking space and startup of startups. Building TheCodeFactory was a fantastic learning experience and a wild ride. In February 2020, I exited the coworking business just ahead of the COVID pandemic (Thank goodness!).

I Help Startup Founders and Small Business Owners
As a startup coach I help startup founders find product-market fit. Getting your first few customers and going from no customers and $0 to $500k ARR is a unique challenge that startup founders must overcome.
As a startup consultant I help small business owners implement digital strategies. Building digital demand generation capability while grow revenue from $500k to $2M in ARR presents a unique set of challenges and constraints.
I have a decade of practical hands on experience going from no customer and $0 in ARR to product market fit and creating $3.5M in value for our partners.
