New E3 Members Receive “Next-Level” Benefits thanks to a sponsorship from IA Business Advisors
The Pete du Pont Freedom Foundation (PDFF) announced today new member tiers and benefits for their Equitable Entrepreneurial Ecosystem (E3). The expanded tiers and associated benefits will help entrepreneurs statewide and beyond expedite their business goals through high-quality strategic support and business resources, as well as access to the entire E3 network of over 30 consultants and fifty entrepreneurs (and counting).
In addition to the new tiers and benefits, PDFF has partnered with IA Business Advisors for an innovative $10,000 membership sponsorship match. This match will grant new E3 members access to higher-level member benefits that create the conditions for equal access to capital and support.
Membership starts at $150 per year, and thanks to IA’s generous match, all new members will be granted access to the next tier of benefits. This means that for $150, a small business owner or budding entrepreneur will receive professional support benefits at the $300 level.
“We are so grateful to IA Business Advisors for their vision and support,” said PDFF Executive Director Stephanie Johnnie. “This match will help entrepreneurs reach not only the next level in their member benefits but also in their business by preparing them to get in front of potential partners and funders.”
“An E3 Membership is an affordable way for entrepreneurs to receive robust support and deliverables from an array of business experts, influencers, and potential investors,” said PDFF Program Manager Lindsay Pennington. “Whether a concept, a startup, successful enterprise, nonprofit or for-profit organization, E3 Membership meets entrepreneurs where they are and helps businesses reach the next level.”
“We are excited to partner with PDFF in support of their amazing E3 program. It is an honor to work with an organization that has such a positive influence on so many entrepreneurs,” said Gregg Koleno, IA Partner.
Included in all membership levels is a complimentary IA Business Advisors A-400 BizVision® Management Method Standard Procedures – a guide to developing individual management styles consistent with company policy & procedure while allowing each manager to maintain individuality – as well as complimentary business incorporation coaching and resources from CSC.
Other benefits – dependent on membership level – include a monthly educational series, access to a private LinkedIn eGroup and network of entrepreneurs, quarterly workshops, twelve small group advising sessions with PMG Consulting, monthly one-on-one customized support from an entrepreneurial navigator, strategy sessions with Launch Point Labs, a marketing pitch deck for their business, tickets to the 2023 Pete du Pont Freedom Award, and more.
