What Others say about us
As a young team of founders, we did not know what VCs place great value on. With Howzat Ennea, we were able to sharpen our understanding of specific sub-areas and thereby considerably increase our overall VC readiness. As a SaaS startup, the inputs have helped us enormously, especially in the areas of business modeling and financial planning. Apart from learning a lot from them, we also very much enjoyed working with them on a personal level. In fact, we established a long-term collaboration with them, which is still ongoing.

Start-ups about working with us ...
As founders and like many other founders out there, we found the world of raising VC capital a confusing and challenging experience, with many people willing to offer the advice but very few with the knowledge required to give it. It was refreshing to work with Anton, Cassian, Simon and the team at Howzat Ennea since they have a deep expertise of the VC world having sat on both sides of the table. The time spent with them provided a huge amount of clarity for us, and I would imagine that it would do the same for many other founders..

I highly recommend working with Howzat Ennea. They have an extraordinary network and lots of expertise. They know what it feels like to be in your shoes because they were founders as well. They work fast like a startup and can definitely keep up with your pace. When things go south they stay calm and figure out solutions with you. And they challenge you hard, so that you're able to reach the next level as a founder.
Overall, they are great people you like to go for dinner with.
