Startup instructors are professionals who teach entrepreneurs the skills they need to thrive in competitive and challenging industries.
To become a startup instructor, you must be innovative and focus on becoming an expert in your market and function. Then, you should immerse yourself in startups and have strong communication skills.
Here are some real life success stories of starting a startup instructing business:
1. Let's Reach Success ($60K/year)
Lidiya Kesarovska (from The Netherlands) started Let's Reach Success almost 10 years ago.
I’m Lidiya, a full-time blogger, course creator, and the founder of Let’s Reach Success. With the content I publish on the blog and the courses I create, I help people start a side hustle and earn passive income so they can pay off debt, quit their job and live their best life.
My signature program - Financial Freedom Through Blogging - is the formula for starting a blog, growing it to 100K page views and $5,000/month, and living life on your terms. Inside it, you’ll find answers to all your questions about becoming a full-time blogger, behind-the-scenes content, real ways to make money and build blog traffic, a ton of video tutorials, how-to guides, and bonuses.
2. Bcombinator ($1.2M/year)
Erik Brieva (from Barcelona) started Bcombinator about 5 years ago.
I co-founded Bcombinator to help entrepreneurs to be even more successful than I have been. In my 20+ years as an entrepreneur, I have created 6 startups, scaled up 3 internationally, and successfully sold 4 (iSOCO to B2BFactory in 2001, Enzyme to Nexe Group in 2011, Polymita to Red Hat in 2012, and Strands to CRIF in 2020).
Bcombinator was launched in 2017. Since then, we have launched around 25 startups and have worked with more than 100 entrepreneurs, helping them with our different programs for incubation, acceleration, mentoring, training, networking, international expansion, technology, legal and financial advisory, co-working space, marketing, and sales.
3. Startups of London ($72K/year)
Ozan Dagdeviren (from London) started Startups of London over 3 years ago.
I launched Startups of London in the September of 2019 because as a migrant entrepreneur who had moved to London in early 2018, I was surprised by the total lack of rich media content about the startup scene here. Yes, there were the occasional blogs and funding news in social media, but there wasn’t a media company profiling these startups with video and rich content.
Over the last 2 years, the content we created reached more than 100,000 people in the UK. We are the number one organic result for a lot of key search terms used by our audience and have sizeable traffic that is on steady growth. We also grew the team to 5 people in total including me. Over the last 6 months, growth was our primary focus rather than profitability, but we still did well with B2B deals and B2C products.
4. Argona Partners ($120K/year)
Jeremy Imlach (from Indianapolis) started Argona Partners ago.
My name is Jeremy Imlach, I am a CoFounder and the CEO of Argona Partners. Argona is a strategic consulting and startup development firm. We focus on three areas of success; Financial Health, Growth Strategy, and Fundraising Readiness.
