We are on a mission to foster relationships that empower innovators to succeed.
We’re building the first visibility-as-a-service platform that helps early-stage startups connect with media and event organizers based on mutual interest. Exposure is the secret ingredient that can turn a promising startup into a rocketship, and we've set out to make it more accessible and affordable.
We believe that something magical happens every time the right people are brought together, and dream of a world where all talented people - regardless of their background - can access powerful networks that enable them to succeed faster. Helping high-impact startups share their stories with the world is the first step.
Our Core Values
* Intellectual curiosity
Stay curious and question everything
* Transparency & collaboration
Don’t hide things, engage in productive discussion
No politics, ideas over titles
* Drive for excellence & results
Strive to do better than yesterday
Listen and empathize, there are always two sides to a story
When our founders met in 2018, one of them was working on a side project to increase visibility for immigrant entrepreneurs in the US. The chemistry between our founders-to-be was instantaneous, prompting them to stay in touch and continue the conversation. After a while, they realized that the lack of visibility for foreign entrepreneurs was a symptom of a larger problem. Most startup founders - both immigrants and Americans - found it hard to get exposure due to limited funding and access. Through first principles, our founders realized that bringing the right people together is the best way to close this gap, and EllisX was born.
