Sponsor Spotlight: Level Up Labs
Taking a business to the next level is our next sponsor’s main initiative. We introduced you to Level Up Labs before our last competition over a month ago, and now we want to share with you more about this innovative business. Hal Gottfried, Founder and CEO, started Level Up Labs to advise new “founders” develop their creative capacity, entrepreneurial confidence, and acquire the skills to build scalable ventures that solve real problems. Gottfried explains “[they]work with savvy entrepreneurs, teaching them to craft the right message by making qualitatively strong business decisions” Helping a business understand understand the “why” they are in business,not just the “who,” is his number one priority.
So who would benefit from Level Up Labs? Anyone who has an idea that they are passionate about, especially those feeling stuck, frustrated or overwhelmed trying to start or grow. Gottfried says it doesn’t matter what stage you’re in, even if you’ve already worked with a mentor or accelerator program previously, we can help you move beyond the “now what” stage. Level Up Labs is different from any other “coaching” business out there because Gottfried has had over 20 years of experience. Having been involved within most key areas of several the top Fortune 100 his understanding of how it all fits together is integral, and that is more valuable than anything.
Level Up Labs does not specialize in any specific industry, any type of business is welcome at Level Up Labs! Level Up Labs fits in when a business is ready to get traction and focus on what really matters. One thing Level Up Labs prefers to stay away from? “We try to stay away from app development though.”
A piece of advice for those in the entrepreneurial world? Gottfried says “make sure you are passionate about what you are doing, truly a passion and not a hobby, and it will stick naturally.”
