IdeasVoice Mission

The birth of new companies is a challenge for the future of a nation. It can be difficult for individuals who embark on the adventure of entrepreneurship to overcome barriers. The difficulty lies not in the ability to have good ideas, but in the capacity to perform and achieve them with the right management team from the start.

According to a recent study, a little over 50% of startups fail in the first four years. Most of these startups need a stable flow of revenue, investors who believe in themselves and a good idea. But most importantly, they require the right team which to support one another through the development period.

Helping small businesses to achieve sustainability and growth is vital for both the development of industries and corporations.
Small businesses are critical for job creation, improving living standards, raising productivity and achieving inclusive economic growth and social cohesion. Many of the new jobs will come out of small, medium and micro-enterprises.

Our mission is to empower entrepreneurial initiatives, boosting the development of business with the right founding team, business partners and investors and with skills and know-how development.
Our aim is to provide startups with essential tools and resources that can be used for their development, survival and success of business.

Essential tools and resources can be divided into financial and non-financial support. Non-financial support can be provided in the form of mentorship, market access, network access and the learning of new skills.

Over the years IDEASVOICE has received several accolades starting with the Innovation Grants it received from the French Government upon their launch and then going on to receive the title of the “Young Innovation Company.”
Currently, IDEASVOICE has more than 10,000 registered members. 

Not only has Ideasvoice earned the title of global company, but now also has distinguished sponsors such as Ronney and Nimmo Law firm, Laconia Capital Group, TechHub and WeWork, to support their CUP OF IDEASVOICE events in New York City.

cups of ideasvoice

event

While IDEASVOICE recognizes the need of the dream team that an entrepreneur requires, it goes beyond their online platform to provide the startups support in the form of its event CUP OF IDEASVOICE. It is an exclusive moment to meet, pitch, discuss and co-create. Companies registered in the IdeasVoice platform are welcome to pitch their ideas.

The audience interacts with the entrepreneur to find solutions either equity purchase, service provider etc, to create a future growth plan for the SME. Each event has fostered solid business relations and provided the chance for founders and investors to meet face to face and bounce ideas off of one another. Each CUPOFIDEASVOICE event awards the best pitch a prize from one or more of our sponsors including an advisory session with them to develop their project.

Mr. Bob Knorpp from Beancast Marketing Podcast termed IDEASVOICE as a “necessity for the startups in New York City”, while Geri Kirilova from the Laconia Capital Group who was a facilitator for the CUPOFIDEASVOICE event said, “It’s great to sort of be in a collaborative environment where it wasn’t just the facilitators or the leaders of the event asking questions, but also the attendees and the community members.”
