    Frequently Asked Questions

    Here are some questions companies tend to ask

    Why do you focus on profitability?

    Companies focused on profitability develop a deep understanding of their customers and efficient ways to market and sell. Their customer acquisition costs are low, freeing up resources to invest in further expansion and market growth. Contrary to popular belief, profitable companies can grow much faster because they have mastered the process of selling efficiently.

    What are the advantages of in-person meetings?

    Our in-depth meetings are usually 3 to 4 hours long, giving us the opportunity to discuss your company in detail, identify your current issues, and apply SmartUp’s methods to solve them. It usually takes 3 to 5 years to bring a company from inception to sustained positive cash flow. As the company matures, meetings evolve to cover all aspects of expansion and growth.

    What is involved with the SmartUp program?

    The SmartUp program includes lectures and workshops covering all aspects of a company. We dive into product development, efficient lead generation, marketing, identifying your core customers, building effective sales processes, and more. The practical part of the program is a weekly or bi-weekly management meeting with your SmartUp Team. In the meetings, we review the most pressing issues, discuss advancement, choose the next steps, and push forward.

    Do you invest in companies?

    SmartUp is an entrepreneurial internship program, not an investment company. Our goal is to change how people build new companies. If SmartUp joins a currently operating company or founds a new one, we collaborate using the co-founding model. SmartUp has resources and capital allocated to our portfolio companies and provides a vast professional network to support them.
