Down to earth coaching for founders.

Simple advice - real results
based on 28 years of founder experience

3x founder | 3x exits | 1x unicorn

I help alleviate this solitude by coaching founders on the skills and playbooks needed to be successful.


Travelling the entrepreneurial journey can often feel isolating.

Based upon patterns I have observed and used  over 28 years as a founder.  

Story Telling

There is a direct correlation with success for founders who communicate their purpose rather than talk of product functionality.


Ideas mean nothing unless a founder can execute and deliver their ideas. As an early stage company, execution eats strategy.


Experimenting is the art of not wasting cash when finding product / market fit, ideal customer profile and effective sales funnels. 

A Little About Me

My name is Nigel Verdon
  • LinkedIn

I am a company builder and outdoorsman. 


Over the past 28 years I have founded / exited three fintech companies (Evolution, Currency Cloud and Railsbank), mentored founders from zero to exit and worked with 100's of founders.


As a company builder, my sweet spot is taking an idea from zero to $1m revenue and then preparing to scale. 

Why do I mention outdoorsman? I have been in love with experiencing nature and the great outdoors since as long as I can remember.


I believe this exposure to the greatness and dangers of nature has conditioned me since a small child to have some of the core founder skills of communicating inspiration, understanding risk and being highly resilient.
