Firm aims to grow an aligned ecosystem that puts entrepreneurs first
(Manchester, N.H., April 12) — York IE™, a vertically integrated strategic growth and investment firm, today launched a strategic partner program to develop a strong ecosystem of companies that support ambitious entrepreneurs and their startups.
“We want to reshape the way startups are built, scaled and monetized, and we can’t do that alone,” said Kyle York, CEO, York IE. “Similarly, successful companies aren’t built in a vacuum. It takes an entire ecosystem to make true change. Through our new strategic partnership program, we will continue to deepen relationships with everyone within the startup ecosystem, from accelerators to nonprofits, so we’re collectively better able to serve startups.”
Through its new strategic partnership program, York IE will engage with seven different types of partners, including:
- Accelerators, incubators and universities
- Services providers outside of York IE’s areas of expertise
- Corporate startup programs
- Data and product integration partners
- Capital partners that provide alternative financing options or later-stage funding
- Nonprofit organizations
- Individual investors through York IE’s early-stage syndicate
“From the moment we met the York IE team, we just hit it off,” said Brian Parks, CEO, Bigfoot Capital. “We share the same values: helping founders build their companies in the way that works best for them. As a result, our partnership has been great and we’re constantly referring companies to each other.”
The benefits of being a York IE partner include:
- Co-marketing opportunities
- Customer and portfolio referrals
- Exclusive offers
“The team at York IE has a tremendous track record of helping early-stage companies grow,” said Armando Vera Carvajal, vice president at Newchip Accelerator, the No. 1 online accelerator program. “At Newchip our goal is to provide our startups with all of the tools and skills necessary to fund, build and scale. A partnership with York IE was a natural extension of our mission.”
Current York IE partners include Bigfoot Capital, Newchip Accelerator, 4AM Demand, Trevian Wealth Management, IPInfo, Canvs, Altair Group and the New Hampshire Tech Alliance.
