ETHOS

“What if exited founders
joined forces as one team
for exponential impact?”

BARRY STAMOS, CO-FOUNDER OF 1SUPERNOVA

A spark that goes SUPERNOVA

Like our ancestors, it’s time to look to the stars for guidance to navigate startups hero’s journey.

Most founders and startups struggle to recruit, engage, manage and incentivize their advisory boards. All too often they settle or allow their advisors to sit idle on the sidelines with little accountability. Even top founders with elite VC backing want more output from their advisory boards.

SUPERNOVA is changing the advisory game! We stack best-in-class advisory boards with top talent, proven methods and collaborative technology. This unlocks the total sum value of the collective genius of advisors networks to solve problems and speed up intros, deals, investors, hires, M&A, exit or IPO.

FAQS

One Supernova shines 570 billion times brighter than the sun. One sun sustains all life on planet earth. We believe it’s time for solo stars (Founders) to combine our life force energy and shine brighter together (Supernova). To unify our superpowers as quantum creators and play as one all-star team for venture humanity. Let’s light up the world.

We call it oneness at work.™ You allocate one advisory board seat to Supernova! In turn, you unlock access to our all-star community of exited Founders and Superstars. Our Superstars have a vested interest in shared success, as they earn equity in a Superpool of portfolio companies for shared distributions. A win for one, is a win for all.

No, we are not a VC fund. This frees us up from unicorn hunting! Instead, we focus on collaboration for real innovation. Shifting relationships from being transactional to transformational. Real paradigm shifts in the way we serve as one conscious collective for exponential impact.

If you are a Founder with a spark (venture) going Supernova (lighting up the world), then “YES”. At a minimum, we can explore possibilities and evaluate if/how we may be in service to your dream. The heart of our work is backing heart-led founders with game-changing companies solving planetary problems.

The traditional Founder journey is lonely AF and full of moonshots. We exist to change that! Supernova is an all-star assembly of powerful creators open sourcing our superpowers, wisdom, networks and equity. By serving as spokes on one Founder flywheel, we move energy more powerfully and efficiently together.

We earn equity in your company (just like a standard advisor). Supernova is only one addition to your cap table – even though many Superstars may serve your company. Our partners help us facilitate faster funding, deal flow, talent placement or M&A. We can play interim roles or form a tiger team for special ops to achieve key milestones for a fee. We function more like a profit center than an expense (just ask our portfolio companies). Our intention is sourcing and sharing abundance for all.

If you are an exited Founder or Superstar with a superpower to share, we warmly welcome you to play infinite games with us. We are also calling in epic partners to serve our growing portfolio of top founders scaling high-growth companies. Like our universe, we are ever expanding our collaborative ecosystem for the good and welfare of the world.
