“Abaca allows us to work with entrepreneurs using a shared framework for company and product development. And best of all, by engaging early on using this framework, MTI is able to add value through this self-assessment tool which they can use on their own even if they are not yet a good fit for MTI.”

Track Cohorts

Entrepreneur Support Organizations use Abaca to track progress among cohorts. It can be hard to show measurable results in a short time. Typical indicators like revenue earned, capital raised, and jobs created are lagging and take months, if not years, to show results. Abaca tracks immediate, intangible progress on dozens of milestones.
