Start-Up Entrepreneurs, Don’t Reinvent the Wheel!

To celebrate start-up week, 19th – 25th August 2019, as a team we’d like to share our story and ideology to help foster any future business aspirations that you may have.

Start-Up Week Eloqoon 

Here at Eloquens.com we are under the umbrella of adVentures startup studio, a studio that believes in breeding innovative start-ups that create value, ultimately to contribute to the common good.

With  Antoine Duboscq as CEO and Founder and Timothée Demoures as Managing Director, in combing a unique talent pool, taking calculated risks and striving to overcome unanswered questions, Eloquens.com has become the all-in-one online publishing platform for experts of all horizons.

In 2010, Antoine, moved away from running his Strategy Consulting Firm Career to focus 100% on building startups. As a consequence, hundreds of slides, methods and financial models which he had created and used regularly suddenly became sleeping assets.

To continue the value of his know-how he decided to share and sell the product of his work online. Shortly after, he noticed that many other professionals were sharing resources online for multiple reasons:

  1. Personal branding
  2. Generating passive revenue
  3. Simply for the pleasure of sharing

However, unfortunately most of these resources were shared in an unfriendly way for the end-user, with quite a lot of opacity and limited value creation opportunities.

With his startup mindset, he understood that there was a need for a platform where all these various authors could distribute their content in an organised, clear and transparent way. The focus then became to build the marketplace on which these transactions could happen: Eloquens.com was born!

4 years later, we have more than 300 authors publishing actively on Eloquens.com with more than 85,000+ registered users accessing ready-to-use know-how in the domains of Finance, Strategy, Marketing, Startups, Legal, Leadership & HR, and Technology.

In Antoine’s own words, ask yourself:

Please, give me your own estimate: what is the percentage of time professionals from all countries and sectors spend on average in really innovating and creating, versus having to ‘reinvent the wheel’?

Therefore, in utilising pre-made professional tools, which have already been successfully implemented, clearly professionals waste less time, but, more importantly could it even allow professionals to surpass failure?

Entrepreneurship is a craft, not a gamble – Over 90% of Start-Ups fail but BE the 10% that succeed.

Take comfort in the fact that here on Eloquens.com 20% of our published content is focused in the Start-Up field. The domain is so extensive that we have a whole category with over 20 subcategories, of which within there are over 550 verified Best Practices created by professionals dedicated to this area of expertise, giving you the best chance of success!

To mark Start-Up week 2019, Eloquens hopes to have motivated you to pursue your business yearnings and encourages you to explore our resources further.

This year “Don’t reinvent the wheel”, change your mindset, become more open to information sharing, know-how really is a common good.

Highlighted below are just a few of our High Quality Start-Up Channels and Categories.
