 THE GOAL: 

To unleash your business potential. SUEGO is on a mission to help grow and accelerate the Greater Washington, D.C. Region's business and innovation ecosystem by informing, guiding, and connecting its diverse founders and innovators.


 THE VISION: 
If you’re new here, WELCOME!

We are the creator of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the #DMVStartup Community and develop programs to engage people around Entrepreneurship, or ESHIP for short. The Guide is a longstanding online directory that covers accelerators, programs, funding, and everything in between. SUEGO is an ESHIP platform that prides itself on identifying resources like skills building, access to capital, and networking opportunities.

In the next stage of it's evolution, we are 1) mapping out the entrepreneurial landscape in the region to make it easier to digest and create a more realistic and tailored pathway to launch, grow and accelerate your business idea; w are also 2) creating video content to assist with common growth challenges that many entrepreneurs face, and providing it at scale.

From our research this past year across a data set of 3,000 participants across our ESHIP programs, we have learned the following:

  • You don’t have to go it alone. There are hundreds of local resources are ready to help you.
  • Take the right steps to set up your business in Washington, D.C., Maryland, or Virginia.
  • Find financial planning assistance, estimate how much you need and write a plan.

In 2019 we are focusing on streamline how aspiring startups and established businesses find relevant resources to start, scale or accelerate. Our efforts in 2018 taught us that we need to be more intentional about helping one entrepreneur at a time in parallel to scaling out impact. With so much scattered information out there, we realized we need to step up and do better than what is currently being done.

THE BENEFIT:
We are becoming a Single Stop connection to the ESHIP community. Not the only entry point, but one with intentionality that can help you be the right kind of busy based on where you 1) find yourself along the Entrepreneur's Journey and 2) are facing growth challenges. Think of it like coordinated access to the region's ESHIP resources and a career coach helping you take a strategic action.

"SUEGO is a one stop shop to get connected to ESHIP benefits and resources, and be the right kind of busy."

We’ll also share our opinions or take on the upcoming resources, so we can start a conversation and explore if and where your time is best spent. There is no single story to success or entry point, and we want to account for diversity to be the place where the New Majority go to find the right business resource at the right time.

We'Il have two main goals as a creator:
  1. To share video content and deep dive into useful resources and growth challenges that you can trust and rely on to help launch, grow or accelerate your business.
    1. Moving Forward (Video Series)
      Entrepreneurs tell us their current growth challenge, we provide practical feedback and advice to get them moving on to the next challenge. The idea is to keep them moving.
    2. Community Crafting Over Coffee (Podcast Series)
      We pick coffee spots along our travels to talk about ESHIP community building with a diverse array of topics, from case studies to guest speakers and latest trends.
  2. To explore the growth challenge(s) you are facing and providing best practices and strategies to tackle them.
    1. Moving Forward (Webinar Series)
      We partner with industry experts to provide digital classes and workshops along the common growth challenges to help grow and accelerate a business.
    2. SUEGO Communities (Discord Forum)
      We provide exclusive access to our content patrons to a forum for a more 1-1 focus to their growth challenges, relevant connections points within the community, and help keep each other accountable to keep us moving forward in the entrepreneur's journey.

Over the past year, we engaged with more than 8,000 community members, spotlighted more than 300 entrepreneurs, and partnered with more than 200 community organizations through in-person ESHIP programs, BUT we can only take this to the NEXT LEVEL with your support!

SUEGO is a place where you can be heard, converse, enjoy new and upcoming content, and get perspective from from entrepreneurial leaders on how to overcome the obstacles you'll face as you unleash your business. This is OUR time, this is OUR community, and this is just the beginning...

THANK YOU for continuing to spread the word about what we’re doing and the change that we’re trying to ignite. Welcome to SUEGO, now let’s get to work.


 BACKGROUND: 
The excitement and energy in the DMV region's business & innovation community right now is fantastic. There’s a lot happening on a weekly basis and staying abreast with events and news, planning and creating events and workshops to serve the community takes significant time and effort. SUEGO started as a passion project, as a resource site for people in the #DMVStartup community. It has been self-funded until recently, when our portfolio of ESHIP programs evolved to incorporate the Entrepreneur's Journey and help bring some enhancements to the user experience.

Together, our team shares ESHIP resources and news about the DMV region's business and startup ecosystem as well as produces events for diverse founders. SUEGO is the DMV region’s go-to online hub for resources about business and startups in the DMV region, and we’ve got plans to provide even more value to the community through intentional workshops, programs, and additional online content.

To do this we’re looking to raise funds through grants, sponsorships, and crowdfunding that will enable us to dedicate the time and resources necessary to help the region unleash its potential.

 NEW T-SHIRT AND MUG DESIGN: 
This t-shirt and mug design will run November 1-January 31 and this cycle's t-shirt will be selected by, the one, the only InnovateCoalition! T-Shirts will ship in the first two weeks after a month of completed membership.


The African Proverb said it best, "If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together." Our business success gets magnified when we learn, connect and engage with others. They could be a developer, a designer, the CEO of their own company-they are all around us. And we celebrate this community every year through Global Entrepreneurship Week. This is our newest, SUEGO Elite EXCLUSIVE, around for one time and one time only, t-shirt. Sign up here to get yours.


And you now we kept it going with the mug. Team work makes the dream work in any endeavor, and ESHIP is no different. It takes a community to build a startup, and you have a community to call home here in the region...never forget it. (Note: These mugs are locally sourced and hand-painted in the region by homeless turned creative entrepreneurs.) GET YOURS NOW WHILE THEY LAST!

Have an issue with your mug or t-shirt? Message the Team here on Patreon and they'll get it resolved ASAP!
