YourEcosystem enables fully virtual programs for entrepreneurs that can be initiated at any time, do not rely on physical space, and do not rely on the entrepreneurs or members of living nearby. The ability to help entrepreneurs on their phones, laptops remotely is critical to casting a wider net of opportunities with a consistent scalable workflow to measure reasons for success and failure of new businesses using data. This achieved by the provision of a single data driven framework that can be applied to the management of all entrepreneurial ecosystems.
YourEcosystem provides measurable benefit to the user and the ecosystem manager that translates to a return on investment measured by a reduction in operational overhead and an increase revenue generated from trade carried out on the platform.
Our customers use our platform to manage intake to their programs, guide entrepreneurs through consistent journeys of progression, connect members with mentors and advisors and a community of peers. This provides the entrepreneur with a clear digestible journey of progression. The entrepreneur can then be provided with enabling resources such by trusted service providers and or investors when they are ready to spend or raise money.
Over the course of the last 18 months, We worked directly with our customers to identify and solve problems they encounter in dealing with entrepreneurial ecosystems. This has been done both from an entrepreneurial and administrator perspective.
1.Demystify the entrepreneurial journey as much as possible by providing a consistent workflow
2.Democratise access to trusted enabling resource by providing curated mentors, service providers and investors selected by our client ecosystem managers.
3.Reduce needless effort for the entrepreneur those that manage them with an efficient workflow so that time can be spent more effectively driving the business.
As a Professor in Entrepreneurship and the Director of the Master of Entrepreneurship at Trinity Business School, I have had the opportunity to use Your Ecosystem with my students over the past two years. After having tried alternative softwares, I can say that Your Ecosystem is a substantial upgrade in the market. In addition to its project management structure, students and myself have enjoyed the networking aspect of it. Being able to connect to stakeholders and potential partners is a key element in the journey of any aspiring entrepreneur, and I am glad that my students could to that through Your Ecosystem.

In my role as Head of Student Entrepreneurship at Trinity College Dublin, we have been working with TheStartup.com since early 2020.
At Trinity, we have been very successful in producing student startups and have been the top European University for producing Entrepreneurs for the past 6 years according to Pitchbook.
However, In order to truly scale the number of student founders we can engage with, we needed a platform to help us manage both student engagement and provide founders with tools to develop their solutions at their own pace with minimum intervention but support available where and when required.
With the Yourecosystem solution we found a product to meet these requirements and a company that would work with us to co-design even better tools based on many conversations, workshops and feedback from the student founders. The platform will be the engine that powers the next generation of student startups at Trinity College and we look forward to a long partnership.
Linking up with The Start Up was easily one of the best things to happen to Seed. At the time, we were trying to get our idea to market, and not 100% sure how to do it. The guys provided great advice and mentoring which has proved invaluable. Not only did they help us launch and hit our goals quickly but also guided us past the usual pitfalls allowing us to exceed our initial expectations and timelines. Seed has continued to expand and now has customers in 37 countries. I've no doubt The Start Up's network of contacts helped fast-track that expansion for us. The Start Up platform continues to be a great tool for our team, and something we refer to constantly. It helps guide our decision-making process and keeps us on the right track. We recently completed our first community fund raise via the Start Up's crowdfunding platform, which exceeded our initial funding target in 4 hours. I'd wholeheartedly recommend The Start Up to anyone with an idea and the desire to make it happen
YourEcosystem is the exact platform that I was looking for to support the operations and growth of our new Digital Technology StartUp Incubation and Innovation Centre (www.merits.ie).
The ability to have an online platform for connecting and interacting with all key stakeholder groups across the ecosystem is essential for a modern incubation/accelerator hub. Not only does it ensure continuity of service during a pandemic, it is perfect for the future of hybrid working.
We can track StartUps progress through our programmes, easily enable them to populate application forms for funding from State development agencies and connect them with really strong content, playbooks and member benefits from our corporate partners.
Having all their pitch decks and business plans on the platform makes it easy to share access with prospective investors.
Fin and the team at TheStartUp.com offer an invaluable resource to time starved start-ups who want rapid access to all they need to know. At Enterprise Nation we know from first hand experience that start-ups want to be connected with the right capital, people, and potential contracts. TheStartUp.com offers route maps to these resources and is an ideal model for founders and/or the places in which they are accessing support such as accelerators or corporate backed training programmes. Heartily recommended!
To whom it may concern,
We are delighted to be working with Fin and their excellent team on the UX design for YourEcosystem, they have demonstrated clear understanding of their market needs. From our experience we see real value in the platform by providing a single solution to help entrepreneurs along their journey, recommending resources to help them and also providing an easy way to manage communities is a real need in entrepreneurial ecosystems globally. We have been engaging with clients of YourEcosystem in Ireland and the US to design Version 2. We are very excited about the new product release in Q2 21 and are looking forward to a continued partnership with the team.

Fionan and team worked with Bank of Ireland on our Business Financial Wellbeing programme and they delivered an excellent product for our startup and sme customers. There was clear validation and need for the product evidenced by customer demand. The team was superb to work with, agile and flexible for corporate needs but with a strong focus on customer needs and journey. Their team ethic, knowledge of the sector, customer needs understanding and ability to communicate and deliver with a large corporate highlights the growth potential in this business.
Fin and his team have set up an ecosystem for the Belvedere Union. This platform will allow our members to communicate directly with each other and it will support all of our different activities. I hope it is going to provide a step change in the way we do our business. It has been a pleasure working with Fin and his team and I am very excited about the positive changes this system is going to make to our organisation.

Without the Startup.com the Boost Pad would not be where it is today. Even though Charlotte NC is in a very different time zone than Dublin Ireland, the team was always available when we needed them. From our initial analysis of the Your Ecosystem platform all the way through implementation and ongoing customer service, Fin, Jan, Ken, and Rich have been fantastic to work with. We never felt that we were a customer we always felt like a partner. Their focus to democratize entrepreneurship for all resonates with our community.

Tangent, Trinity's Ideas workspace has been using the Ecosystem software since September of 2020. The platform has made my job managing the student entrepreneurship programme a lot easier because I now have a single virtual home for members of our entrepreneurial community to live. It allows our student entrepreneurs to develop ideas independently without sacraficing the sense of community needed to stay motivated.
Fin and the team are incredibly easy to work with and quick to respond to feedback. I know a bit about what's coming soon and am very excited to watch platform develop over the coming months and years.
