Without BlueChilli we would have spent twice the amount of money on our business idea with only limited validation. Thinking big and being challenged every day by mentors with real world startup experience and successes has helped us grow as fast as we did, and the science behind the 99toLaunch approach kept us focused and motivated all the way.Joel

Take the first step
One of the biggest challenges in starting a new business is that you often don’t know what the next step is. You have a great idea, and you can see what success would look like. But the steps between ‘zero’ and ‘hero’ are not always clear. There are mountains of books and blogs available on everything from user acquisition strategies to detailed conversion optimization tactics. But if you don’t even know to look for them what good do they do you? We’ve worked intimately with over 100 startups, and we’ve seen the same mistakes being made over and over again — most often it’s simply because of inexperience. Having an experienced mentor guide you through the process can be very helpful, and that’s exactly what this course offers you: a clear path to starting and launching your business.
More than 90% of startups fail. It’s a fact. Kinda… Because startups that have completed an accelerator program perform better. Research* from a cross-section of startups across the globe showed that accelerator-backed startups have only a 25% failure rate and a staggering 21% successful exit rate over five years. Accelerator programs achieve these results because they provide new startups with great value when it comes to a framework for success, experienced startup mentors and advisors, exposure and recognition, networks of investors and an ecosystem for success. The 99toLaunch program distils the essentials from BlueChilli’s proven accelerator program and delivers the key knowledge you need in a self-guided online format. No need to quit your job, no need to relocate to a new town. Get the benefits of a startup accelerator program in your own time, online, with 99toLaunch. We’re all about increasing your chances of success. * “Do Accelerators Help Startups? Here’s What We Found.” – Research by Second Century Ventures.
Not all entrepreneurs are ready or able to commit to a 3 month full-time accelerator program. Your idea might still be too early stage, you might still be looking for team members or you might have family or financial commitments that prevent you from packing it all up and launching into your venture full time. Or maybe you just want to test the waters and see if the entrepreneurial path is the right one for you. None of these reasons should prevent you from taking action and making your great idea a reality. The 99toLaunch course was designed specifically to allow entrepreneurs – regardless of your circumstances – to quickly progress your ideas from a concept to a real company with the minimum amount of risk. We’ve converted the guesswork into science with a proven framework that guides you through key methodologies like Lean Startup and Customer Validation, in an easy to follow step-by-step format. It’s the fastest, most effective way to test and launch a new startup.
