A quick overview of our Coaching Programme

TEAMS WE’VE BEEN FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO WORK WITH

WHAT WILL MY TEAM THINK?

SYSTM made my job so much easier! Now I can get engineering, and the founder actually listens to me.

Ivo Kostadinov

Head of Growth, Love Electric

It feels like I’ve fast-forwarded 5 years of experience in just 10 weeks

Rosie Hoggmascall
Growth Lead, Ferly

We use the process every day for faster alignment and faster results. Plus I am having more fun. I can't recommend SYSTM highly enough.

Sarah Bradnum
Head of Comms, The Joy Club

WHAT 

YOU GET

We’ll work together through 25+ hours of live workshops and 1:1 coaching (not watching videos) for you and up to 6 members of your team. Our goal is to develop and execute your Growth Playbook, including:

North Star Metric

01

A team aligned around your North Star metric and a dashboard of 3 – 5 behavioural metrics that drive it. (what will your team stop working on?)

Messaging That's Proven to Convert

02

To find language/market fit, we’ll uncover your customers subconscious biases and triggers, so we can develop and quickly validate your winning proposition.

Your Best Scaleable Channels

03

Most great startups grew through only 1 or 2 channels. Instead of trial-and-error, we’ll help you find channel/market fit for your business. Then we’ll help you build the muscle (tools, talent, process) to win in that channel.

A Prioritised Experiment Backlog

04

90% of your results will come from 10% of your work. Therefore, your team must remain focused on dreaming and testing big-impact ideas.

Team and Leadership Insights

05

You’ll get specific candid insights & feedback about your approach, business and team. Do you have the talent and skill in the right places? Is your leadership style helping people succeed or getting in the way?

HOW IT WORKS

We combine the best bits of private consulting (1:1 time with experienced operator/coaches) plus the benefits of a 10 Week accelerator (great structured content, outside experts, network of founder peers, accountability framework). We’ll work side-by-side and focus on execution.

We’ll work side-by-side and focus on execution (not watching videos).
A typical week starts with a Zoom workshop (presentation + discussion) where we’ll introduce a concept and give you an exercise to apply it to your business. Later in the week, you’ll have a 1:1 session with your coach, plus optional “deep dives” on various tactical areas, and help designing growth experiments and interpreting the results.

"Yes, that's right, 22x in 18 months.  The programme helped us create rigour around growth. It would've taken us 3x longer to build our growth engine if it wasn't for SYSTM."

Founder/CEO Rebank (YC W19)

† Early-stage teams will be coached in a group with founders of 2 similar (but non-competitive) businesses (e.g. also B2B or B2C or eCom).

WHO SHOULD APPLY?

Seed & Series A startups (or bootstrapped equivalents) who have a good product, but struggle to get predictable, scalable profitable growth.

It’s ideal for mobile apps, SAAS, marketplaces & ecommerce. (We’ll have separate tracks for B2B vs B2C). In addition to a good functioning product, you’ll need both founder(s) and employees who can dedicate time to focus on growth.

3X REVENUE GROWN IN 3 MONTHS!

“We worried that being in a cohort with so many other startups would dilute the direct impact of the program. But working 1-on-1 with our coach led to profound breakthrough changes in our business. I can honestly say our coach helped us change the outlook of our business entirely.”

Max Stratmann
CRO, Scanbot

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • WHO FROM MY TEAM SHOULD ATTEND?
    Up to 6 people, should include founders, recommend also your head of growth and/or product (if you have them) and analytics. We can work with you on this list during our intake session. (While your extended team cannot participate live, they can access the recordings and course materials).
  • ARE THE LESSONS LIVE OR PRE-RECORDED VIDEO? CAN WE ASK QUESTIONS?
    You'll join a mix of group calls and private coaching sessions with just your team. It's all 100% live so you can question and discuss with the coaches and other participants, and follow-up during private office hours.
  • HOW ADVANCED IS THE MATERIAL? OKAY FOR NON-MARKETERS?
    The material is intellectually demanding, but does not require marketing experience. It is first principles learning, so it will require a lot of thought and operational discipline. But we will present the content in a way that’s accessible to people with zero marketing background and engaging for experienced marketers alike.
  • WILL THE SESSIONS BE RECORDED IF I CANNOT ATTEND?
    Yes, participants will have access to the recordings for one year from the program start date.
  • IS THIS LIKE REFORGE?
    Reforge is an excellent online learning program for experienced/elite level marketers working at late-stage startups and corporates. We’re focusing on earlier stage companies, and welcoming people who have no marketing experience whatsoever. And, rather than individual training, we’re focusing on your whole growth leadership team, since growth really is a team sport!
  • ARE YOU TAKING EQUITY?
    Not at this time.
  • WHAT IF WE CHANGE OUR MINDS OR WANT TO PULL OUT?
    If you change your mind for any reason in the first 3 weeks of the programme, you’ll get an 80% refund, no questions asked. (Though this rarely happens, as we try to make sure everyone’s a good fit via the application & interview process).
  • WHAT ARE THE SELECTION CRITERIA?
    We want this program to have a huge impact on your business. So we’re looking for companies that will have the greatest benefit from our program. That means you need a good functioning product, happy customers, a talented team, enough resources to try stuff, and most of all, a genuine desire to commit to the process, reflect and try new things.
  • WHAT ABOUT MY COMPETITORS?
    Our discussions must be 100% candid. Therefore we cannot allow competing companies under any circumstances. We’ll manage this through the application process.
  • DO YOU WORK 1:1 WITH COMPANIES OUTSIDE THIS PROGRAM?
    That’s how we started out. But we found that the structured program is much more impactful. We can actually spend a lot more time together (lessons + 1:1 coaching sessions), bring in more outside specialists, and the teams also help and encourage each other.
  • HOW MANY SLOTS ARE AVAILABLE?
    Only 30 companies, so that each one can get direct personal attention.
  • WILL WE ACTUALLY BE WORKING DIRECTLY WITH THE COACHES?
    Yes. Each week you'll have a private session with your coach. Plus, you can also book in office hours with any of our other specialist coaches including Matt and Nopadon. We have experts in everything, including analytics, lead gen, conversion, brand building, SEO, paid ads, conversion optimisation, marketplaces, driving app installs... all kinds of stuff, really.
  • ANY OTHER MENTORS?
    Occasionally we bring in additional outside instructors to “go deep” on a particular topic. In the past, we’ve been fortunate to run sessions with Sean Ellis, Andy Johns and Gagan Biyani (founder of Udemy). No promises, but we’re always trying to bring in the best minds we can find!
  • What is SYSTMHub?
    SYSTMHub is a dedicated platform for startup founders and your teams to connect, collaborate, and access resources that accelerate your growth. It's a vibrant community where like-minded entrepreneurs can share insights, seek advice, and foster meaningful connections.
  • How can I join?
    Joining SYSTMHub is easy! Simply click on the "Sign Up" button, and follow the registration process. Once registered, we'll follow up to set up a quick call!
