Get the resources you need to jumpstart your company. ERA’s four-month program combines hands-on help, seed capital, a great co-working location, and an expert leadership team to quickly get your company to the next level.

 

Get hands-on help

Our mentors and staff work with you daily to help you work through the tactical and strategic issues central to your business. Each one is committed to helping you and invested in your company’s success. We listen, advise, nurture—and push our companies. We help you get things done faster and remove obstacles that slow you down.

Get access and exposure

We give you great mentors and access to the right investors, sales prospects and partners. ERA companies gain direct access to leading members of the New York City and broader tech community.

 

Collaborate

Exchange ideas with the other startups in your program—and in the broader ERA alumni network. We find that ERA startups learn as much from each other as anyone else—and they thrive on the energy and innovation of working day in and day out with like-minded startups.

We’ve got great toys! Our chill workspace is well equipped with an Xbox, ping pong table, fully-equipped kitchen with kegerator and lots of room for program happy hours—or just lunch. Poker nights, karaoke competitions, gym discounts, tons of free stuff and a staff just waiting to enjoy it all with you.

ERA helped us fine-tune our messaging, become more strategic in our approach and dramatically grow our network. During the program, we felt like we could tackle anything, given the connections, great networking opportunities and vast experience of the group. Having other startups around let us brainstorm, connect and grow. Months after the program ended, the partners and mentors have continued to be great friends and supporters.
