About us

“Non est ad astra mollis e terra via” Seneca the Younger

It is very simple – there is no magic bullet to startup success. No shortcut. No secret system. No genius invention that will just make you rich.

Startup success is a daily hustle until you reach your absolute limit. And then going beyond it to forge forward with conviction yet based on real time market feedback to ultimately be successful.

What is success you ask? Success is measured by paying customers – and that is what we will be working towards together.

Startup success is built on daily execution – building a real business (aka processes, metrics, frameworks, roadmaps) rather than a sect that follows an infallible leader – and being a little better today than yesterday.

This will not guarantee success by any means. But it will make your journey more tangible, faster and more likely to succeed. It will also make it a lot easier for enterprise customers and investors to work with you since after a seed or A round stage they will stop to be impressed by your PhD in Physics or your room temperature qubits.

This is what AD ASTRA offers you – the promise of sharing the latest, most tested tools, frameworks and approaches. Coach and mentor you in them. See you through your first few customers and put you on a path to autonomous scaling.

Let’s partner to make that happen!
