our partnership process

When you partner with CED, your support network grows exponentially. You’ll receive guidance to identify and navigate the right resources–whether you need capital, connections, or know-how (or all of these).

Every entrepreneurial company has different needs–and some are still trying to figure those out. CED invests in you and your success by getting a thorough understanding of your company’s current status and how you want it to evolve. We’ll take your vision, our expertise, and a huge network of resources, and create a support path that helps you realize your goals.  

three steps to your success

Step One: Partnership Discovery

We’ll get to know you and your company, and gain a clear understanding of the support you are seeking. You’ll get to know us and our capabilities for supporting entrepreneurs, and how we can best support you. This is the most important step in our process. It will drive how you engage in the CED Network and the path created for your company’s support

Step Two: Connect with the Entrepreneurial Support Team

Our Entrepreneurial Support Team will provide your company with an introductory assessment that includes current business health, capital needs, and fundraising plans (if applicable), along with a recommended support path. This is at no cost to you. We take the time to review our recommendations that will guide you during this time of rapid growth. CED knows that your company is unique, which is why we believe a path for support that is easy to navigate is absolutely critical

Step Three: Commit to the path and evolve your business

CED has two paths of support depending on timing and readiness. A recommended path is determined at the completion of step two, then presented to you for final consideration. To provide ongoing support, CED will assign a customer support specialist to follow you and help you meet your goals along the way.  We understand that companies grow at different speeds, so making sure you receive the right support at the right time is our ultimate goal.


“I first starting using CED in 1995 when we launched SciQuest and it’s hard to imagine how we could grown a simple idea into a public company in just 5 years without their assistance.”
Scott Andrews // Serial Entrepreneur // SciQuest & InvestiQuant, Inc.
