Entrepreneur of the Week: Mike Mathia: KNOXX

Taking a moment from his hectic day, Mike Mathia was able to discuss with me for a bit what’s new this week. Sitting down in the conference room, lined with the skyscapes of Wichita, we started with Mike’s goals for the upcoming week. Top on his list is to get the first prototype of KNOXX’s mobile app. This will allow KNOXX to be much more mobile and accessible to its users. Eventually, the goal for this app is to calculate statistics such as voice tone, vocabulary, and eye contact to further aid the user. For now, however, it will be a simple “beta” version of the one day “alpha” app.

Talking with Mike on what has been the most valuable aspect of the e2e Accelerator, Mike said he had two things that made it extremely helpful. First off, bonding with the other cohorts and being able to share the challenges has made a world of difference. To not be alone in a challenge can be the difference between success and failure. Second, having access to e2e’s mentors has been a game changer. Without the introduction from e2e, Mike says there is no way he would have access to some of these great minds. e2e has made it possible for him to connect with the right people.
