The E2E Ethos
Next Coast Ventures is excited to announce the launch of our re-branded content platform: E2E. E2E stands for “entrepreneur to entrepreneur” and is a true reflection of our firm’s founding mantra: “Built for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs.”
Every single member of NCV’s leadership has sat in the entrepreneur's seat and frankly we know just how damn hard the job is every step of the way. That is why we wanted to launch E2E in an effort to better serve every entrepreneur who is chasing their dream in this world.
We believe NCV is different from other VC firms because it’s not just about investment dollars to us, it’s about leveraging our diverse business acumen - and our networks’ - to help entrepreneurs build great companies.
E2E is a direct product of these company building initiatives that we hope will be a useful tool for entrepreneurs looking to disrupt the next big market.
Through regular content offerings on our site, E2E will be broken up among these four sections:
This is the line of content that will house a lot of nuts and bolts of taking a small idea to a big one. We will try and cover a wide range of topics here - such as product design, consumer acquisition or fund raising - with a focus on the numerous growing pain our network of experts has experienced while scaling a business.
A nod to our newsletter Quarterly Dose of ATXnology, this section of content will be all about what trends we are seeing in the Austin investment ecosystem and other Next Coast markets.
Entrepreneurs are more familiar than most with the saying “hindsight is 20/20”. This section focuses on helping other entrepreneurs avoid those moments - which we politely refer to as “oh sh*t reflections” - through Q&A’s with our fund’s leadership, our expert network and the C-Suite executives from our portfolio companies.
At Next Coast we are huge fans of transparency, so this section will provide insights into the progress we are making at the Firm. Information about our investments, Firm developments and other information directly related to Next Coast can be found in this section.
We will be posting this content regularly and you can sign up to receive E2E in your inbox here. If there is ever a topic that we aren’t covering that you’d like to hear our take on, let us know on our Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn page - we’ll be sure to incorporate it into E2E.
Onward and upward to all the ass kicking entrepreneurs out there - and thanks in advance for incorporating E2E into your weekly content diet!
