Blackout

Eleven is a high pressure atmosphere. We push the limits of every day we have. Fundraising, Sourcing, Evaluating, Investing, Mentoring, Building, Shipping, Reporting, Pivoting, Supporting, Presenting, & Innovating. The result of our way of working is astonishing. 80+ startups in less than 2 years. In the machine of Making Early Stage Investments, we have little time for catching our breath.

Every good machine needs time to get tuned up/re-calibrated and re-booted. Enter: Our (Experimental) Hibernate and Restart Mode.

Eleven is shutting down it’s entire “machine” twice per year – in August and around Christmas/New Year. This is a full, mandatory shutdown of all internal activities. A blackout, if you will.

Our team shall explore other creative interests. It’s time for us to get our head back into the game. For some of us it is time to windsurf, snowboard or ski, as well as spend more time with our families and enjoy special moments with our kids and loved ones. For all of us it will serve as a time where we can all relax and know that there is nothing to worry about. Time for us to reflect on the amazing progress of the last year, and come back even stronger for the one to come.

At Eleven we strongly believe in pursuing success and constantly improving what we do. We already know that great teams can thrive in less conventional places (like Sofia), now we want to take our conviction one step further and prove that both we (as Eleven) and our startups can lead (not follow) and excel on a global level.

Our thesis is that this break will lead to better work, more rigorous program, and an emotionally balanced team. So after working hard, it’s time to play harder 🙂
