Being a founder is hard; every startup needs a support system to launch ⏤ that’s us. 1871’s PYROS initiative puts you on the trajectory to success.

Four Stages

Every startup goes through these stages; entry into the right stage ensures you have access to the right resources at exactly the right moment.


You’ve got an idea or early stage product that you’re passionate about. You can’t wait to test it.


You’ve validated and deeply understand a problem worth solving, including the business model to prove it. You’re talking to customers with early market signs that you’re on the right track.


Customers love your product and you are ready to take off. You’ve got the data to show it and a robust analytics funnel to analyze the results of growth tests.


It’s time to scale your business to new heights. You’re looking into customer retention and loyalty while expanding into new markets.
