e3 evaluates opportunities, equips entrepreneurs with the tools they need to launch and empowers them to create high growth companies. This workshop addresses the most critical factors for startup success based on learnings from hundreds of advisory and portfolio companies. e3 not only allows i2E to evaluate the founders, commercial opportunity, and immediate next steps for the startup, but also allows founders to take a deeper dive into the factors that drive their business, better understand investor expectations, and advance their customer prospecting and pipeline building.
e3 is specifically tailored to small cohorts so that the workshops can focus on discussion and one-on-one feedback from startup experts. e3 serves as the first step towards i2E’s advisory and investment services by allowing i2E to gather a large amount of crucial information while companies hone key elements of their pitch. Throughout the four, two-hour workshops founders and startup experts work together to create and/or validate the company’s place in the market, the immediate next steps for the company, and future investment potential.
e3 is the most robust program of its kind in the region and boasts 30 cohorts, consisting of more than 150 companies, since its inception in February 2015. Past cohorts have included seasoned founders as well as first-time entrepreneurs; all of whom have gained valuable insights from e3. Founder Feedback and additional information on e3 are available in the tabs below.
