Meet other great Founders who want to engage and share ideas, practices and recommendations on how to succeed. We all have excellent skills and, together, we can give your start-up the very best chance at success.
We procure exceptional speakers, venues and quality events to ensure that every month, we have something on the cards to help you grow as a Founder. Listen to great people who have grown brilliant companies and learn how you can follow in their footsteps.
Our main aim is to ensure that we have great Founders, but importantly that we also bring active Investors to our events. We want to ensure that at every event, you are making quality connections that will help you grow your company and get the funds you need to succeed.
Non-members can only attend two events per year.
As a member, you'll have the chance to speak at pitch events that happen twice yearly.
Access to various credits and discounts for startups.
Becoming a member will allow you to attend EC workshops aimed to help Founders improve their business. We have specialists in Marketing; Fundraising; Social Media and Legal.
To ensure we have quality Founders as members, if this is your first business, then you need to either be revenue-generating or have raised funds. If not, you are welcome to come back and contact us later down the line.
We are looking for Founders to join - who not only believe in our community - but also are willing to work to help it thrive and grow. You need to believe in the power of collective working.
The notion of a 'community' only works when each member gives something back, as well as taking from it. If you are here to benefit yourself, then, unfortunately, you aren't the type of person we'd be looking to accept.
In order to become a member, you must be invited by a current member and have attended one of our events. Only once you have been approved by the membership committee will you be added as a full member.
Simply reach out to a current member who will nominate you or submit a form through our contact page above. Please note, you must be a full-time tech founder in order to join. Advisory services, PR, Marketing and Legal do not count as tech founders unless you have an associated tech platform.
Once you have been approved, you will be invited to become a full-time member. Please note, that if you register and are rejected, we will refund your entire payment, minus an admin fee of one month's membership.
We aim to ensure that the network remains strong, with great people who will help you on your journey. As such, we are careful about whom we invite to our community. Make sure you read through our criteria for membership above and, if you think you tick all of the boxes, please apply for membership through our contact page. If you have a contact at EC that can refer you personally, even better.
