In 2022, we created Hexa to go one step further

Having concentrated on building B2B software in the future of work space for years, we decided to expand to new verticals and build companies in fintech, web3 - and more. With Hexa, we were able to go further than we could have ever imagined.

How Hexa Does Early-Stage Go-To-Market

Pre-PMF is the best part of building a startup when you are doing GTM. It's a time of unrestricted experimentation where failures are just part of the process. Unlike tech giants like Google, your early-stage startup won't be making headlines if something goes wrong, giving you the freedom to try, fail, and learn without much scrutiny.

We’re launching Hexa Scale to transform linear-growth companies into market leaders

At Hexa, we’ve been building tech companies for the last decade. Some thrive and become leaders of their categories, some close, and others keep going, create sound businesses, and grow linearly. Venture Capital financing works for the first two outcomes but is inapt for the third. Private Equity can finance the third category, but will not offer the strategic shift they need.

Hexa Letter #2: The path from 1 to 30 companies a year

In 2011, we began eFounders with Quentin Nickmans. The concept was to create several companies in parallel through a studio model. At that time, everything was to be invented; we had neither the means nor the team. We started with Mention, Mailjet, and Textmaster during the first two years. This allowed us to learn a great deal, such as our level of involvement, the type of entrepreneurs we wanted to partner with, and the method to be implemented. By 2015, we had launched a total of 5 companies, just over one per year on average.
