Here's what it's really like to cofound with us.
You can either pick a studio, or apply to all. Once you’ve applied we’ll assess the possibility of working together.
Each studio conducts extensive research to generate startup ideas. We’ll pitch you our ideas and together we’ll find one that best matches your skillset and drive.
We’ll introduce you to multiple potential cofounders that we’ve hand selected for you, and support you along the way to make sure it’s the right match.
Now that you’ve got the idea and co-founder(s), it’s time to get building. You’ll work hand-in-hand with 20+ operational experts who join your team and help you develop your MVP, recruit your core team people, and get your first users…
Once there is traction, you’ll work with the studio to raise your first round of funding. We'll connect you with our network of angel investors and VCs.
After 12-18 months, you're ready to leave the nest! You'll become operationally and financially independent from the studio. But we'll never be too far, you'll become a lifetime member of the Hexa community.
They have co-founded companies with us
A builder at heart, Rod created his first company immediately after graduating from École Polytechnique and Columbia University. In 2013, he sold his company to Solocal (formerly Pages Jaunes) and took up the role of COO at Drivy before getting back to his entrepreneurial roots with eFounders and Spendesk. When he’s not in the office, you’ll find him hiking in the Alps or at home with his wife and three daughters.
Launching with eFounders immediately gave us a head-start. As soon as we got started, we had access to talent, a network of potential customers, and help from everyone in the core team. It’s been invaluable.
Before co-founding Cohort, Séraphie was Chief Operating Officer at one of Europe’s first blockchain startup. After a career in strategy consulting and in France’s largest financial companies, Séraphie decided to join the blockchain revolution to make it accessible to all.
3Founders was instrumental to accelerate the 0 to 1 phase. Together with Nathan and Florent, we made key product and GTM decisions with very fast iteration loops. Access to the core team resources and the wider talent pool and the eFounders brand name made it way easier to reach initial product market fit.
As a former strategy consultant with a strong business background, Juliette likes solving complex problems with tech and data. Eager to take on a new challenge, she co-founded Marble with the desire to help fintechs fight fraud. In her downtime, she's a big fan of open water swimming.
Logic Founders was key to launch Marble: Camille as a true partner helping us make better decisions, and Pierre as a full team member supporting product development.
Mathieu is the cofounder and CTO of Swan. He lead Swan’s technical vision and development and is responsible for improving the quality and security of Swan’s Banking-as-a-Service. A seasoned tech entrepreneur, Mathieu launched JS-Republic after many years as a technical director at Xebia.
Every company that’s launched at eFounders has a recognizable grain of shared DNA. At Swan, we know that's partly where our “human” culture comes from. Thanks eFounders for the massive help during our early stages!
A former HEC graduate and BCG consultant, Olivier has a strong business background and has managed large scale, industrial companies.
Joining eFounders to launch Aircall has been a life’s adventure. Since our launch within the studio, Aircall has seen explosive growth, reached unicorn status, hit the $100 million ARR mark, and opened offices across the globe. I don’t think we would have been able to achieve this kind of success without eFounders.
An engineer by training, Alexandre also has extensive experience in the financial industry. He co-founded Upflow in 2018 with the mission to revolutionize how B2B companies get paid.
Working hand-in-hand with eFounders gives you a head-start that is probably unrivalled in Europe today. We would have never been able to go this far and this fast without them.
