DO YOU NEED A SOUNDING BOARD?
Being a start-up, or even a seasoned entrepreneur, can be a lonely existence with constant challenges and, at times, all that is needed is a second opinion. But, coaching can be a pricey affair. The question is whether it isn’t possible to provide an affordable source of excellent advice (based on experience) that is readily available to all entrepreneurs
On the other hand, we have a proverbial fountain of business wisdom that isn’t being used effectively. Every time that a seasoned business executive retires, years of experience, insights and skills leave the business world. Yet, a lot of retired executives would like to continue to contribute, but in a less formal setting. The obvious question is whether it isn’t possible to tap into that fountain of business wisdom from retired executives and make it available to entrepreneurs.
These “what if’s” turned into eXeLink. It functions as an exchange where highly regarded advice from seasoned retired business professionals is offered to upcoming entrepreneurs, at an affordable price. It is about linking Ex-executives with Entrepreneurs, hence the name eXeLink.
The exchange operates through an electronic platform but will always have a human touch. Our team of Engagement Coordinators take over after the matching is complete to facilitate the meeting between an entrepreneur and an advisor, guiding them both through the process and following up to ensure that both sides were happy with the outcome.
