FAQ

  • When should I be exploring Founders Sales School?

    ClozeLoop’s online training program is designed for founders who are in the early stages of market segmentation, initial sales, and developing sales processes. These companies either have founders using fractional amounts of time on sales or may have made an initial sales hire. Primarily they are focused on meeting the objectives necessary for their next funding event.

  • Why Founders Sales School instead of a consultant or a bootcamp?

    We’ve found that there is neither time, appetite, or resources for lengthy, heavy-handed consulting engagements. And everyone knows that one-off sales boot camps have diminishing returns for those who are trying to scale a business. As a result, we created a program that is robust in content, provides no friction in immersion (can be done any time), is rigorous (provides reinforcement) and is specifically relevant to start-ups not filled with later-stage minutiae.

  • What if I really want to work with the ClozeLoop team directly?

    We’ve coupled ClozeLoop startup sales expertise with the latest best practices in adult learning from educational psychologists to create a program that has immediate impact. Startup engagements with ClozeLoop begin with online training so you can learn the fundamentals at your own pace.

  • How will I receive my results?

    The advisor for the assessment will contact you within 24 hours of completion with your specific course recommendations based upon your assessment results and goals.

  • What are the costs associated with Founders Sales School?

    Unlike consulting fees which can be $300-$1,000/hr, or boot camps which average about $2500 per day, Founders School courses start at $299/user/year. The goal is not to create a significant expense, but to get you generating revenue quickly!

  • How do I know it will work for my company?

    You don't. Just because ClozeLoop training has worked for hundreds of companies across the globe does not mean it will work for you. Founding team, execution, product market fit, pricing, and the market are all variables which we cannot control. What we can do is get you more ready than any other program and give you an unfair advantage in B2B selling.
