Do what you love and the necessary resources will follow
E-Man is a development lab with a difference: We believe that people should ONLY work towards conceiving, creating, building and launching products that they are passionate about. A reputation built over time, as one of Londons leading incubator and seed accelerator for start ups, affords our team the luxury of being able to work on the products that we feel passionate about building. If we do not think that we can challenge a founders' vision or work colloboratively by adding value, then we are brutally honest about it.
E-Man specialise in the execution of an agreed strategy and product positioning, with the product design, engineering team to follow through. We prefer to partner at the earliest stage, taking an idea from a blank piece of paper to market.
How you can work with us:
1. Development for hire:
We offer our proprietary product development process to projects that we feel passionate about. Development for hire covers all chunks and components of the E-Man process from Strategy through to support. We offer this service to companies we are passionate about working with, irrespective of size, but to an agreed budget.
2. Collaboration / Founders in residence:
E-Man are looking for Best-In-Class Founders possessing incredible drive and unwavering commitment to World Changing Ideas, attacking billion dollar markets, with exciting revenue models.
After examining your business idea, should we harbour the same passion and insight, we might offer you an opportunity to partner with us.
Collaboration with founders-in-residence comes in the form of:
- a) Smart Investment in the form of time and materials or cash, we can adopt the role of Co-Founders and/or Investors, in return for as agreed stake within the venture. Depending on the deal, we look at both upfront and vesting share agreements with or without an option to hire the engineering team out of E-Man and into your start up.
b) Workspace and the ability to work within our infrastructure. Benefits include knowledge transfer and working within a dynamic and exciting environment.
c) Growth hacking and focused product development, with one thing in mind: customer acquisition.
d) Mentoring and Introductions to other E-Man clients, companies, founders, advisors, angel and institutional investors, immigration and commercial lawyers who specialise in helping start ups to scale, along with talent acquirers and financial advisors.
e) International expansion. With two centres in London and Silicon Valley, E-Man have the knowledge and experience to help you think and execute BIG and on a global scale.
3. Migration from E-Man labs:
E-Man believe in allowing members of our team choose to do what they love and pursue their passions. Partnering with us will enable you to build a dedicated team within our labs to support the execution of your idea. Inevitably, companies grow to a level in their product lifecycle, where they are required to become independent from us. We are very supportive of the company and the teams that are born within our labs. If the founder and team members agree, we will work hard with all parties to facilitate the migration of the product, out of E-Man and into the start up full-time.
We are an ideas lab. The value is in the idea. But the idea is only as good as the people behind its execution.
