EQConnects = Equity Connections
With the numerous success stories around startup companies, app design, networking websites, etc, the idea was conceived for a networking site for entrepreneurs and people looking to get an opportunity with a startup venture. "One of our biggest fears was not realizing our own potential” said Mark Jean, co-founder of EQConnects.com. “We realized that we had great ideas for startup companies, but often were limited by our network. We needed to find the right people, the right skills, and share a common goal. When everyone in a company is personally invested, it is more likely to succeed.” The original EQConnects.com founders did just that. They realized what skills were missing and what that skill-set was worth in equity and offered equity partnerships rather than paying a salary.
EQConnects.com is the first of its kind for this type of networking and is not to be confused with the concept of crowdfunding or angel investments. Instead, the site creates a networking presence for entrepreneurs and skilled individuals to come together and potentially make ideas a reality.
There are two streams available to browse profiles. One stream is for companies looking for talent and the other stream is for skilled individuals searching for a company to join. If a profile is suitable, then simply initiate a connection. EQConnects will then provide the respective contact information.
Mark further comments on the reasoning behind developing EQConnects.com “We're in the midst of an entrepreneurial wave. Freedom is the new sexy. You see reality shows like Dragon’s Den or Shark’s Tank dedicated to entrepreneurs and innovation. It seems more and more often we come across stories of startup companies and overnight success. EQConnects was conceived on the notion of feeling like you can do more than what you’re currently doing, making the right connection and "owning" your future. “
