Welcome to Startup Experts – Brought to you by Skip Sanzeri

We live in a chaotic mess of a business world, and we are here to help you make sense of the situation for you and your startup. As you click through the pages associated with this site, you will get real-world hard-hitting startup information. The content we put before you is not based on academia, or MBA classes, but real-world experience gained from 20+ years of working with over 200 startups.

We prefer to work with small companies in the early stages to help them get off the ground. We’ve seen about everything regarding startups. We usually engage anywhere from concept through the Series B financing.

We’ve helped startups in a variety of ways and we built this site to help entrepreneurs make the right decisions, and avoid the landmines when launching or running a startup.

Feel free to travel around the site to find tips and techniques, information and skills, files and resources or maybe nothing useful whatsoever.  This site is a work in progress so if you don’t see all of the information you may need, you can always feel free to get a hold of us by going to the contact section of this website.  We will continue to update the site with more and more information and content hoping that eventually it will become valuable to many.

Best of luck to you as there is nothing more rewarding nor more risky than launching and running a startup.
