The journey from idea to impact is riddled with uncertainties, requiring entrepreneurs to navigate uncharted territories and overcome constant obstacles. One of the most critical foundations to set at the start of the journey is validation. Without validation through a blend of traction, sales, research (and often investment) securing the necessary funding to fuel your vision is a nonstarter.

It can feel very chicken and egg!

Hex have a track record of taking startups from concept to series A. For over 15 years we’ve worked with disruptive startups and innovative enterprise clients alike. We had all the tools in place to become a new breed business builder and we are extremely passionate about staying close to the heart of innovation. And so, with that intention, we launched the HexStart Programme.

The HexStart Programme is tailored exclusively for founders: a comprehensive and immersive process designed to maximise concept potential and support the journey to securing vital funding. With a keen understanding of the unique needs and aspirations of entrepreneurial pioneers, the service aims to empower founders to succeed by providing them with experts in the following disciplines:

  • Strategy
  • Analysis
  • Research
  • Design
  • Engineering
  • Fundraising
  • Growth

We immerse with founders and create bespoke fractional teams, dialling up or down the required resource depending on the start-up stage and existing skill set. The programme has already proven itself to help founders to confidently pitch and launch their ventures. Picture a space where you can refine your business concept, validate your market assumptions, and leverage valuable insights from experienced mentors. Envision a partner that equips you with the knowledge and resources to navigate the intricate landscape of fundraising, increasing your chances of securing the financial backing crucial for scaling your venture.

Our service is rooted in a deep understanding of the challenges faced by founders at every stage of their entrepreneurial journey. From refining your value proposition and conducting market research to building a robust business model and creating persuasive pitch decks, we provide a comprehensive toolkit! We will be looking to qualify just 10 start-ups annually and already have four founders in the programme. Our first founder to officially complete the programme was Emily. She secured £250k on her very first pitch following the programme.

Benefits of the HexStart Programme:
  • Access to a experienced team of experts on tap.
  • Qualified start-ups get access to investment opportunities via Hex network
  • Expedite your journey with laser focused efforts from multiple experts
  • Achieve deep concept validation
  • Uncover unseen opportunity

A safe and highly productive alternative to hiring freelancers or sourcing part-time teams. We work flexibly on budgets with founders that qualify depending on the challenge or objective we dial up or down the required resource.
