Who We Help
Early Stage Start-Ups
We help Early Stage Start-Ups establish product market fit, determine target customers, find early adopters, design and manage pilots, track and manage leads, and plan for commercial scale.
We help Start-Ups strengthen product market fit, expand customer base, track and manage leads, negotiate contracts, provide sales and marketing support, and plan for scale.
Later Stage Start-Ups
We help later stage Start-Ups strengthen product market fit, expand geographies and market segments, track and manage leads, negotiate contracts, provide sales and marketing support, and plan for expansion.
We help established companies introduce new products and services, expand into new geographies and market segments, track and manage leads, and partner with your business development and sales team.
How We Help
We Help You Convert Leads to Sales
(been there, done that)
A lead is like a first date...you want to make a good first impression. Then you gotta level up to get to a proposal. The Villagers know how to help you make a good first impression and manage the sales process so you close the deal and begin the customer relationship on the right foot!
We Are Low Risk and High Reward
(like apple stock)
There is little skin off your back. We are cost efficient, and you can exit the Village at any time. But we believe we will kick ass together so the only exiting you will be doing is get you to an amazing exit! Otherwise, our goal is to keep you happy and well fed.
How It Works
We designed the e3 Program for 3 reasons:
1. We researched the top reasons why Start-Ups fail, and we built the program to help you avoid those pitfalls.
2. The program gets us up to speed. Instead of onboarding one sales person, you will onboard a village.
3. The Villagers have spent years developing a trusted network, and we want them to be confident representing your company.
*Important: We are not like a car dealership who adds on unnecessary costs and services. This program was not built to get consulting work. We will let you know exactly what we are looking for and what is necessary before starting the program so you can prepare before we get started. And if there is an area where something needs work, you do not need to use us to fix it. All we want is to make sure you are ready to succeed in The Village.
This is where the magic happens!
We take a giant megaphone and share your company with The Villagers. This includes a personalized webpage on The Village website where the Villagers can log in and get information about all of the Start-Ups that have finished the e3 Program. We also host a webinar to introduce you to The Villagers, send out emails with ongoing news and updates about your company, and we actively engage The Villagers who we think would be a good fit for your company.
Remember how fast rumors spread in middle school? Think of the rumor as your company and The Villagers are your classmates, except it's actually a good rumor that is true. Which never happened in middle school.
It's Go Time
Let's get this party started!
I know it probably seems like it couldn't get any better than having a global business development team. But it doesn't stop there. The Village is a one-stop-everything-Energy-Industry-Start-Ups-need-for-sales shop. Except no used car salesman tactics here. We help you manage and prioritize the sales funnel, progress leads to proposals, convert proposals to signed contracts, and set up metrics for customer success. It only takes one success story from one client to keep the party going. So that's the gist of things. Ready to join us?
WHAT IT COSTS
And we all know numbers are important. You can hire one sales person or you can hire an experienced village for far less.
NOT CONVINCED YET?
Well, you are a tough nut to crack. We would love to chat and answer any of your questions.
