Starting is easy. Building great products is hard. Selling is the toughest.
After investing in 150 companies since 2012 our focus shifted towards finding repeatable and sustainable business models, helping our startups reach their scale-up stage, close their next funding round and continuously learn along the way. We provide early-stage funding from pre-seed to seed, and access to a tightly knit community of mentors, partners, and investors to help projects reach the next level.
Our team, portfolio founders, and mentors. Some call it a “Community” while we call it a Family. All of us will be working alongside with you passing on valuable knowledge and lessons from the trenches. Among the family, you will find your first customers, new friends, and unique perspective.
Each and every startup requires different resources and knowledge at a different phase, depending on a number of factors. This is the reason why we designed a VC Platform, which can be tailored to the needs of companies at the earliest stage of their development when support and guidance can truly make or break them.
We believe that startup events can be very useful, but can also be a huge waste of time and money (our thoughts on startup events here). So while trying to make the best of 2017 startup conferences, we've put together a list of the already announced and anticipated events.
Startup founders have to choose between going to events and working on their startups, and there is a trade-off here, so we felt like sharing a word of advice with our startup founders at Eleven. Here are some thoughts about startup conferences.
