The Communitech Start & Scale Team is here to help you understand your business, commercialize your product and get you where you want to go. It’s free to join and all of our startups get a complimentary Communitech membership.

Startups receive support via Peer2Peer groups, educational programming, online resources and access to Communitech events at discounted prices, (actually, they’re often free).


Companies that hit validation stage and are able to answer these sorts of questions are encouraged to pitch and get feedback from the Level Up Pitch Panel comprised of our advisors and Growth Coaches. Successful participants will receive a Lead Advisor to provide advice and support. Additionally, startups are then eligible to apply for our validation and efficiency stage programming and have potential access to Growth Coach time (at the discretion of your Lead Advisor).


What does validation stage mean? It means that you have conducted many customer interviews, found your value proposition and created your minimum viable product. Not there yet? No problem, we can still provide support via our Peer2Peer groups and skill development programs.


We’re here to guide you, but we won’t hold your hand. Engaging with the Start & Scale Team has its perks, but it’s like a gym membership—it only works if you take advantage of what’s offered.
