Startup Together.

About eYours

 

entreprenYOURS (eYOURS) is the first startup accelerator of its kind, combining the customary benefits of accelerator programs, including networking and mentoring opportunities and specialized programming provided by industry and professional leaders, with a unique system of cross equity ownership.  We are a community of startup founders, providing one another with equity diversification, support and a full range of services at preferred rates.

Following a competitive application process, acceptance into entreprenYOURS offers founders and entrepreneurs access to some of the region’s key thought-leaders, established entrepreneurs and mentors for collaboration and advice, while enjoying the benefits, security and peace of mind that comes with access to and ownership of, directly or indirectly, every other member of the entreprenYOURS community.

eYOURS provides risk diversification and equity appreciation possibilities like no other startup network/accelerator program – each member company receives an equity stake in the eYOURS network to which it is admitted and eYOURS receives an equity stake in each member. This diversified ownership allows members to share in the upside of the other ventures in the eYOURS portfolio, which aligns incentives and fosters a depth of collaboration among members of the network unlike those accelerators in which cross equity participation is not a factor.

eYOURS - founded, created and implemented by some of the region’s leading entrepreneurs and advisors - carefully vets every company that applies for admission, employing strict acceptance requirements. Every other company admitted into the entreprenYOURS community benefits from such selectivity.  An independent board of advisors, comprised of seasoned entrepreneurs and investors, including angels, venture capitalists, and strategic investors, reviews every application to ensure the acceptance of high quality candidates.

In addition, eYOURS provides mentorship, education, network access and relationships with best of breed service providers at preferred rates.   Our mentors and network partners consist of leading business men and women, including serial entrepreneurs, top tier lawyers and accountants, experienced investors and other members of the startup and entrepreneurial communities.
