Help is at hand

I can coach you on how to start your software business

Hi, I'm Andre and I am a software startup coach

I've been developing software for over 20 years and started my own digital agency 10 years ago. In that time I've had the opportunity to work with dozens of companies ranging from startups to big corporations. Although the software projects were a success, many of the startups I worked with went on to fail. Feeling uneasy about seeing so many dreams shattered, I dedicated myself to understanding how to better help individuals bootstrap and grow a startup successfully. I now cover all aspects from mindset, to marketing and finances.

I coach on how to build and grow a profitable software business starting from scratch.

How can software startup coaching help?

As software engineers we are blessed with seeing the world in a logical way. Given a problem we relish the challenge of coming up with an elegant solution. We interact with computers as if they were our best friends and we prefer to talk through instant messaging applications as if the keyboard was our mouth piece. Unfortunately this way of thinking doesn't allow us to do one important thing:

Run a profitable business!

A business is based around managing resources which we were never shown how to do. A huge part is also dealing with people who can be highly irrational i.e the opposite of the logical tasks we deal with on a regular basis.


You've noticed the pattern, individuals who couldn't produce an algorithm if the instructions said just add hot water here. Yet they float around as managers, get promoted faster, and are given the power to make terrible decisions. They get paid to be in meetings all day long of which the outcome is the decision to have another meeting.

Have you ever asked yourself the question, why are they my managers?

As a software startup coach I assist you to bootstrap your business through

  • deep insights (diagnostics) of your current situation and why you are still there
  • transformation turning you from a regular coder to a business machine
  • leaving you with practical actions and tools that increase your business effectiveness

Software startup coaching is for you if:

You code for a living and want to take yourself further in business

Let's face it you enjoy coding but you know deep down that your skills could be used to achieve more for yourself

You are not progressing as fast as you would like in your software career and looking for a shortcut

Your progress is limited by your peers and your boss. Should you be letting them dictate how successful you can become?

You are wondering how to make more money from your coding skills

Does seeing entrepreneurs become wealthy from starting out as regular coders make you think you could do it too?

Getting started is free. There is no commitment

Stop coding.
Start building.
