The e2e Accelerator is Wichita’s first ever business accelerator focused on activating, accelerating and mentoring entrepreneurs in the Heartland. e2e’s accelerator differs from other accelerators in other respects. It is not restricted to startups, but will take companies of any age, provided they can be scaled.
Other accelerators accept “classes” of successful applicants into structured multi-week programs and have standardized arrangements for sharing equity. Not so with e2e, for each company we accelerate, programming and investment starts when we begin working with you. It ends three months later when we celebrate your mind-blowing accomplishments.
Become an e2e Mentor
You’ve been a part of building successful businesses, but you probably had some help along with way. Perhaps it was a gentle nudge from a family member with business experience or maybe it was a punch in the face from an investor. No matter what your own style is, this is your opportunity to reinvest in the community that helped you build your success. E2E Accelerator mentors coach young businesses that are entering a stage of rapid growth. Along the way, mentors find themselves energized by the thrill of a fast-growing business, new relationships and an early look at many of the ‘next big things’ to happen in Wichita.
Meet the Mentors
The E2E Accelerator is based on the principle of one generation of entrepreneurs passing along guidance and investment capital to another. It’s led by a team of experienced entrepreneurs who’ve built companies that have reshaped their industries. Getting the right mentor on your team is crucial to gaining access to customers, talent and capital that fast growing companies need to thrive.
