Supporting Startups in Times of Uncertainty

March 20, 2020 – In November of 2018, ITEN added the on-line engagement platform tool, UNION, for all our member companies to more effectively access the services and resources that we offer to them to help launch their tech companies, as well as connect with mentors and each other. A range of topics and programs can be found here from Investor Readiness and Business Canvas tools, to the EUREKA! validation modules on Sales, Marketing, Operations, and Product Development, to all the video of our 2nd Thursday main events. Not to mention mentors to help you with all of it! The beauty of adding this option for our members was so that entrepreneurs could access all of these virtually which makes it extremely convenient for our tech founders (and their teams) in accommodating their busy schedules. Better yet, it’s FREE of charge to them!

With the current situation, due to the Coronavirus, and the daily changes that businesses and entrepreneurs are facing, we hope more now than ever our member companies will utilize UNION. Here they can access our Mentors, our EUREKA! Modules, Provider Perks, discussion boards and much more, virtually from within our ITEN/UNION community.

In response to recent challenges, accelerators, incubators and innovation programs of all kinds must reinvent themselves to ensure they can carry out their missions and address the needs of their entrepreneurs. Being a startup founder can be a lonely roller coaster in the best of times, we hope you continue to login and connect with each other as you navigate these uncertain ones. There is power in community!

ITEN Member companies can log in from or from our homepage. Here you can read the full article from UNION on how important having these types of engagement platforms are in supporting startups around the globe!
