Founding Principles of NEXEA

Why We Founded NEXEA

At the inception of NEXEA, we’ve laid a few founding principles that are carried on to this day;

We aim to increase the Startup success rate from 1 in 10 towards 2 in 10 and beyond by supporting as many Startup Founders as we can, and as often as we can.

We do not tell Startups what to do – we support and advise Startups. We advise them via experienced Founders (mentors) who have already found success. 

We do not chase after money – we focus on building up Startup fundamentals the right way. By focussing on fundamentals, the rest will follow.
