Product-Market Fit Workshops

We want to earn the opportunity to invest in your startups

Traction Speaks Louder Than Words (and Pitch Decks)

GrowthX Capital is a venture capital fund run by operators with extensive go-to-market experience. Being helpful is our primary form of due diligence.

Founders enjoy an unfair advantage, and our fund enjoys a reliable source of investment signal.

Building products and raising money is not sustainable. Marketing products and making money is.

We partner with global organizations that support founders and volunteer our time to host a 60-minute virtual product-market fit workshop.

It’s how we begin earning the opportunity to invest in your startups.

"Product market fit is a term that get's thrown around a lot, but from a founders perspective, is super intangible.

Workshop Highlights

GrowthX Founders

Andrew and Max were the first VCs to have a vetting process that gave us a chance to detail the HouseKeys’ Market, prove our team’s domain expertise, and chart a path to “yes”. GrowthX makes me hopeful for well-qualified entrepreneurs who want to truly be judged by their capability and given an opportunity to build something great.

Julius Nyanda • Founder & CEO

We chose GrowthX as investors for their B2B expertise, for sharing our belief that success comes from customer revenue first and their stellar Market Acceleration Program. The team helped Contentools with their mapped out methodology applied to go-to-market, allowing us to replicate the step-by-step process to our own reality and scale.

Emilia Chagas • Founder & CEO

Before investing in my company I always felt that the interactions with GrowthX were more of a mentor/mentee relationship where they truly wanted to see me succeed and not just for their own economic gains. They are a great team that perfectly balances humanity, the need to create value (for all involved) and unique skills focused on accelerating the growth of promising companies.

Eric Howie • Founder & CEO
Life Detection Group

With GrowthX, you have a team that’s working with you and thinking on how to adapt the general process to your market. They work with you! They understand the little aspects of your business, that’s the difference. They’re re ally involved in operation of the sales process.

Agustina Sartori • Founder & CEO
GlamSt (acquired by ULTA Beauty)

GrowthX was instrumental to us in raising our round after completing the Matter accelerator program. Andrew took the time to learn our business and not only helped us to source capital, but guided the process to ensure everything was smooth, efficient and expedient.

Rebecca Eydeland • Founder & CEO

GrowthX has been a fantastic partner in growing my business. The team is extremely supportive and eager to help with anything we need, whether it’s a simple introduction to someone in their network, or more hands on advice on go-to-market initiatives. I feel lucky to have found such a talented and passionate group and would recommend GrowthX as a partner.

Thatcher Spring • Founder & CEO

GrowthX is one of the most helpful VC’s I’ve had the privilege of working with. Long before deciding to join InHerSight’s second round the team was adding value, brainstorming ways to enhance the platform, reaching into their network to make meaningful connections, and being genuinely accessible and approachable.

Ursula Mead • Founder & CEO

I chose GrowthX because the partners are all experienced operators and different from typical SV investors, so having that grounding is very helpful to build a truly long lasting business. During the process, they were very transparent and their focus on nailing true customer need before scaling resonated with me.

Pavan Boob • Founder & CEO

I’ll admit it, marketing doesn’t come naturally to Slope’s team of engineers, logisticians, and software developers. GrowthX used their market development expertise to help us think exponentially about novel ways to spread our message to our target audience. The team at GrowthX is more than just a group of check writers, they are partners who help us reach our full potential.

Rust Felix • Founder & CEO

Having GrowthX on your side is like having a co-founder that is an absolute authority on lean thinking, business strategy and achieving product-market fit.

Sashank Purighalla • Founder/CEO
BOS Framework
