MERITS

” Maintaining momentum and engagement with the members of our ecosystem is always challenging with so many demands on everyone’s time. This engagement was particularly difficult during COVID times when physical meetings weren’t possible.

We set out to find a platform that enabled us to have a resilient method of engagement with our members and partners, irrespective of whether physical gatherings were possible or not. The platform we chose was YourEcosystem from TheStartUp.com.

We selected them after a competitive tendering process as they were able to give us exactly what we wanted – an ease to administer a platform where our partners can interact and where we can upload Masterclasses and Playbooks of interest to them, while facilitating the communication channels for our members. The added bonus was the built-in marketplace that we are able to customise to our requirements and to offers that appeal to our tech ecosystem members. “

Steven Lewis

Executive Director

The Boost Pad

“TheStartup.com has been an invaluable partner to the Boost Pad. As an early stage incubator for underinvested women and minority entrepreneurs, the Startup.com understood our mission and helped to develop the digital infrastructure to grow and support our Ecosystem.”

About Us

We are driven by the challenges and rewards of supporting the educational, commercial, and social impact ecosystem needs of those in start-up management, as well as the demands of individual entrepreneurs and teams of new founders.

The idea for TheStartup.com PLATFORM™ began with TheStartup.com’s own requirements to build a suite of digital tools for our incubator clients. After failing to find an existing solution, we opted to create our own software that addressed the issues faced by startups and startup communities around the world—so they could launch, grow, and scale. After surveying over 2000 entrepreneurs and over 100 startup communities, we ensured that TheStartup.com PLATFORM™ would provide connectivity, digital tools, data management, customization, mentor facilitation, e-learning, financial management, and portfolio management.

In a world where 90% of startups fail, TheStartup.com is dedicated to changing this statistic.
