The Six Components of a Successful Entrepreneur Ecosystem

~ Browse the tabs above for more info on each component ~
  • Resources

    By giving your local resources the opportunity to introduce themselves and their business in an online video, entrepreneurs can learn about the unique skills and services offered by resource providers when they need them. It’s a personal introduction that’s available 24/7.

  • Analytics

    Want to pull back and get an overall snapshot of your entrepreneur ecosystem? You’ll have complete reporting at your fingertips that gives you real time access to share the success of your program in terms of entrepreneurs in the system, activity on your platform, and even the revenues and jobs forecast by entrepreneurs progressing through the ecosystem.

  • Educate

    Each entrepreneur in the system is connected with a business coach that offers insight and accountability every step of the way. This coaching relationship is an important part of keeping the entrepreneur motivated and connects them with resources, mentors, investors, and events that can keep them on the path to a successful launch.

  • Capital

    As entrepreneurs progress through the pathways, they are guided through the process of determining if their business idea is financially viable. Through this process, EvisThrive gives you the ability to compare the entrepreneur’s business plan with detailed profiles of your investor network to match up entrepreneurs with investors who are likely to make investment in the business.

  • Events

    Our entrepreneur ecosystem features a couple of key events that will help keep your community engaged in the program. StartFEST highlights businesses that are just getting off the ground while GrowFEST features business that are running and growing.

  • Communicate

    Whether it’s engaging your community to attract entrepreneurs to the ecosystem or an internal tool that allows entrepreneurs to share their journeys with each other, evisthrive will show you how to leverage the tools available to keep your community interacting while leveraging other groups to attract strong community support.

The average entrepreneur spends nearly $33,000 getting their business started. Connecting local resource providers to local entrepreneurs is easier than you think.

No one is better prepared to help launch a new local business than a local business. Whether it’s finding an attorney, an accountant, a software developer, manufacturer, or even office supply store…connecting entrepreneurs with local resources makes sense for every business in the community.

Because entrepreneurs can seldom schedule an introduction during traditional business hours, a traditional introduction meeting can take weeks. By giving your local resources the opportunity to introduce themselves and their business in an online video, entrepreneurs can learn about the unique skills and services offered by resource providers when they need them. It’s a personal introduction that’s available 24/7.

A business meeting at 1:00am? Sure, I'm available.

Whether it’s one 1:00am or 1:00pm, every resource provider in the community can send their best salesperson in to share their expertise. An online video is the unique opportunity for entrepreneurs to search and learn about the resource providers that can help them with their business.

You might just be surprised to find out who wants to invest in that new business idea.

Over 70% of entrepreneurs say their biggest hurdle to getting their new business launched is finding the capital they need. That’s no surprise. Evisthrive gives you the tools you need to create an active network of traditional and non-traditional capital resources. Using a proprietary system for attracting and engaging investors, we’ll show you how to attract and connect unique investors with entrepreneurs in your ecosystem.

There’s a path every entrepreneur must travel to take their business from a great idea to revenue generation. No one should have to go it alone.

75% of new entrepreneurs work a regular day job while they squeeze in working on their new business mostly on nights and weekends. The EvisThrive platform gives aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to work on their new business any time, any place.

A Learning Experience

There are two unique pathways within EvisThrive, each pathway includes eight modules that are created as a hands on discovery learning process. With each module building on the one before, an entrepreneur creates their business as they travel through the pathway.

StartPath

This eight segment pathway is created for an entrepreneur wanting to start a new business. Using this program an entrepreneur will go through the process of evaluating their product concept, establishing pricing, distribution, financing and more.

GrowPath

These next eight segments are designed to guide an entrepreneur with an existing business through the process of preparing to take advantage of a rapid growth opportunity. This pathway is ideal for a business that has a new idea or product they would like to launch.

Success leaves tracks

The curriculum in each pathway was developed from the results of a proprietary best practices study of 50 successful entrepreneurs. Through a detailed mapping process we followed these serial entrepreneurs from successful business launch to successful business launch. What we discovered was a very clear launch pattern that resulted in a high success rate. We figured out what they did, when they did it, and who the connected with to make it happen. We took those results along with the fundamentals of creating a sound business plan and developed the EvisThrive pathways. A road-tested approach to launching a successful business.
