Dear Founder,

I’ve been exactly where you are right now.

I spent thousands of hours and dollars learning on my own and I made countless mistakes along the way.  It took me years to see my first sales.

If you’re new to premium brand entrepreneurship (or entrepreneurship in general), then you must acknowledge there is steep learning curve. More than 95% don’t make it.    

I failed (I prefer to say “learned how NOT to start a business”) again and again, but I never gave up and after years of hardship and perseverance, I finally achieved my goals. 

I promised myself WHEN I became successful (a positive mindset is essential!), I would support others on their journey as well, I just didn’t know how…yet.  

Eventually, I figured it out, and it’s what I’ve been doing everyday since 2011 as a founder, investor, coach, and mentor.

There is no high or feeling better than standing on your own two feet, and I’ve made it my mission to help as many motivated founders as possible accomplish success as well.  I will ALWAYS go the extra mile to help founders get one step closer to their dreams.     

Unfortunately, everyday I see or hear about more entrepreneurs who give up.  

They don’t know where to start, which information to trust, how to market or sell, and they can’t figure out the right steps to success.

Does this sound familiar?

EC Accelerate removes all the noise and provides you with a proven framework, a motivated community, personalized coaching, and a vetted network to get from where you are now to success as effectively and efficiently as possible.

That’s the dream. And we’ve been supporting founders to accomplish this dream for the past decade.

And I’ve made it my goal to help you get there, with a fail proof plan – as long as you’re willing to apply yourself.

Founder & CEO of EC Accelerate

Here's Just a Few of Our Successful Product Launches

ATLEXO

"The experience with EC has been vital to our successful launch as a business. There is no other way to say it. We would not be where we are today without the EC community. Without EC we were a lost puppy looking for mommy. Without the EC team and framework I would have failed miserably as a brand and a business. Each time the journey got tough and arduous I would refer to my brand building templates and research databases. Each time I got discouraged or off track I would refer to our customer interviews and feedback from validation. And each time I needed some encouragement, it was right there with the community members answering questions and giving advice. I have already formed several lifelong friendships and contacts in this process. I am really excited about what's in store for the future. This is only the beginning."

"I didn’t want to invent a new product. I wanted to improve upon what is already in the market as I saw an opportunity in the market. The EC Accelerate program takes a holistic approach to learning how to successfully start a premium brand business. The combination of their framework, community, and coaching meant I was never alone on my journey and it led to my successful launch last year.”
Constantin Ricken
Founder of Silverton

STAG Rack

"I had graduated from college, secured a job at a fortune 500 company, and I knew this wasn't the life for me. ON the other hand, I knew for sure this was the program for me- luckily, it didn’t disappoint! Over the past year I’ve been stretched, I’ve grown, and I learned more than I ever would have imagined because of this program. I doubt there is any other program out there with the experience of EC Accelerate. If you want to bring a physical product to life, this is a great way to do it with VERY experienced mentors."
Joey Bridges
founder of STAG Rack

The EC Accelerate Framework is Broken Down into 6 Simple Phases

Phase 0: Ideation

“How do I figure out what to sell?” is one of the most frequent questions we hear from our founders. We have a proven process to quickly and effectively come up with, research, and validate your future premium brand business.

Whether you enroll in our program with no ideas or you have numerous concepts already down on paper, our product ideation process will guide you through the right questions to ask and what to avoid when you’re narrowing down your future product.

We practice and preach “Keep it simple, stupid!” approach and strategies throughout our entire program, and we emphasize this starting in phase 0. Let’s not reinvent the wheel. Let’s focus on falling in love with the process of starting a business, and the results will follow.

Phase 1: Your Business Foundation

The most important part of your business is your foundation.  The first step is to put your business vision into words.  This phase will show you how to organize your thoughts to give your business the best chance of a success.

Without a clear vision or direction you won’t succeed in the short, mid or long term. We created a system to guide you.  We make sure you build the correct foundation first.

We will answer key questions, such as - “Who are my early customers?” , “How do I communicate with my customers?” , “What makes my brand special?”

We provide a framework for you to create and communicate your business so that you will have a strong foundation to build on.

Phase 2: Understanding Your Audience

You need to flesh out your audience.  The more you understand about your audience, the better you can serve them as customers.  

Your audience is the group that is the most receptive to your brand and most likely to purchase your product in the early days.  Without them, you will fail miserably.  

We will answer key questions, such as - “Where do we find our audience?” ,   “How can we identify them through online and offline channels?” , “What is the best way to communicate with our audience?”

We’ll walk you through proven research strategies and provide templates to track your progress to ensure we’re experts on our audience.

Phase 3: Building Your Online Presence

It’s time to set up your foundation for growth.  Consistent growth is the goal of all entrepreneurs. Before long, we will be driving potential buyers your way, and we need to be prepared to convert as many as possible.  

As an entrepreneur, it’s your responsibility to understand and implement core strategies for your business to develop the most efficient path to sustainable growth.  Without sustainable growth, you will always be “on your heels.”

We will walk you through setting up your marketing foundation and make sure you’re aware of how to do this the correct way and what to avoid.

We provide you with proven strategies and tactics to build your sales and marketing funnels to communicate with your audience and monitor their performance.  This process is paramount to your success as an entrepreneur.

Phase 4: Customer Development

We sell, we learn, and then we scale.   Engaging your early customers and learning from them is essential.  As we do, we’ll leverage technology to make sure we’re selling better and scaling smarter.

As we’re learning more about our audience through direct customer engagement, we’re also learning how to read our marketing and sales data better and the result is a lean, high performing business.

This is where all the hard work comes together and we start to see the results.

We focus on the timelines fundamentals of business building and the latest and greatest technology to make sure your business is ready for today’s business climate.

Phase 5: Launching Your Business

After we have feedback from early customers and market data how do you turn a small business into a big one? 

This is what Phase 5 is all about. It’s time to bring your new premium brand to life and start to generate revenue and profit for your business. Our proven launch process will guide you to success. We guarantee it.
