How to Work with Scott Fox

Thanks very much for your interest in working with me on your startup.

I’d love to work with you!

I love startups so much that I spend most of my time helping entrepreneurs and startup ecosystems around the world.

Unfortunately, this means I generally do not have time left to talk to everyone who wants to connect with me.

So, I’m sorry but I just can’t take a “quick look at your business plan or investor deck”, do casual coffee meetings, or schedule “pick your brain” phone calls unless there’s a specific deal under negotiation or we establish an advisory relationship together…

Scott Fox Startup Consulting Services

Here are the best ways to connect with me - both free and paid:

Events: If you are in the Orange County, California area you can easily find me at local startup events. I organize, host, or judge some every month. I'm always happy to meet and chat F2F at these events - that's why I go!

If that sounds like you, please visit the OC Startup Council, the Orange County startup events calendar, or the MasterMinds Startup Accelerator Workshops pages for more details.

Online: If you'd like startup business advice from me, I've worked hard for 15+ years to create resources to help accelerate the success of early stage entrepreneurs. Please check out:

Personalized Startup Strategy & Fundraising Consulting

If you'd like more personalized advice for your startup, I apologize in advance but I already give away as much of my expertise as I can at all the events I attend and organize (see above). I'm happy to help your new venture, too, but I do need to charge for my time in order to maintain control of my schedule.

If you’re ready to really talk business, here are some paid options:

  • MasterMinds Forum: Since 2009 I've run an online forum for readers of my books worldwide at https://www.MasterMindsForum.com. This basic text-based forum will allow you to post questions and interact directly with me. This costs $39/month for 24/7/365 access to years of archives and my personal attention.

  • Business Plan & Investor Deck Reviews: If you’d like me to review your investor presentation or business plan, I’ll go through it to make recommendations for improvement. These generally include suggestions about strategy, wording, go-to-market, business model, valuation, and how to best position your venture for success. Visit BusinessPlanReviews.com and $299 will get you the personal expert feedback you need to help find investment funding from venture capital firms and angel investors.

  • ExpertWebSiteReviews.com: If you want my expert opinion on your website, visit http://www.ExpertWebSiteReviews.com. I'll make a personalized video review of your website discussing ways you can improve its strategy, design, SEO, sales conversions, usability, etc. $295

  • Private Coaching Calls: If you are serious about working together, sign up here for a Private Coaching Call with me. We'll have one hour together to discuss your business strategy, marketing, product development, fundraising, etc. $300 with a Money-back Guarantee.

    • Note: An initial Private Coaching Call is required to get acquainted before any discussion of Advisory Board roles or investment.

ADVISORY CONSULTING OR BOARD ROLES

If initial conversations go well, usually they lead to further discussions or a F2F lunch. This costs $1000 for one month of casual back and forth emails and phone calls to explore a relationship. If there is mutual interest, discussion of Advisory Board or other roles may follow in exchange for a small equity stake in the company and my long term support.

So there you go. I'm sorry if this seems rather impersonal.

Because of the popularity of my books and my regular attendance at live events, I need ways to filter and organize my schedule. This page and these options above are the best solution I’ve found.

Please don’t be put off. I'd be happy to help you and your startup if we see each other at an event or if you can fit into my workflow as outlined above.

Best regards,

Scott Fox
