They have been through the program, here is what they say about their experience!
Game changer. 34 Elements Academy offers a modern way of thinking that will influence my entrepreneurial vision for a long time.
It's a transformative experience. Pierre makes the questions that most founders don't think of. Every single issue you will find out in your plans is rooted somewhere else. It's an uncomfortable but indispensable procedure. Virtually nothing of your current plans will finish the process in the same place.
34Elements delivered way more than we had initially expected. It really was a two months communion, it made us closer friends, it helped us align our vision at a very early stage and the feedback from fellow entrepreneurs, whatever their background, was always relevant. Pierre is a true master of its art. We would re-do it in a heartbeat
The 34 elements experience is very structured to build you more solidly and it may start with destructuring... a well built method to unfold the 7 weeks, group exchanges with mirror effects and especially the eye of the coach, demanding and benevolent who in a holistic approach will underline the points to work on. What else ? Just do it! Thank you to the 34 elements team for the richness of this course! Indispensable for any entrepreneur!
CEO, Skewer Lab
The only "training" that opened my eyes to concrete actions to take on as a founder. Constructive exchanges, which move the cursor on the vision we have of each element. There is, to my experience, no other valid method to achieve the consolidation of your company's fundamentals. Love
VP Sales, Ekstere
The Academy has been a fabulous journey, combining 3 key ingredients that created a tasty recipe : a robust methodology, the strength of the collective approach, Pierre's constructive input with a high level of expectation.
CEO, Le Marché de mon village
Pierre brings the best of entrepreneurship in the world to a stunning level of simplicity and understanding. His global and international experiences is a great value to open eyes on what business should be. It challenges founders, the project, our vision and ambitions to bring them to the next level. Such course should be mandatory to all when becoming entrepreneurs.
CEO, Coach Rameur
Through the 34 Elements training, Pierre helped me structure my thinking and become strategic. I loved the intensity of the program and its construction. This is the service I needed to complete my project. A big thank you Pierre.
I would highly recommend working with Pierre and using the software he developed to any entrepreneur regardless of the stage you are in because it will provide some unbiased/unfiltered constructive feedback that is usually hard to get from people.
Pierre forces you to make strong choices and focus on the essential. It's a no BS, common sense approach. It starts with the strategic vision, that we tend to forget at time being so much product driven. From there everything he does through 34 elements is logical with clear business objectives.
When joining 34 elements, I knew that we would be challenged on the strategy and direction of our project! And we have been, deeply, always with good intentions, understanding, and objective analysis. Thank you Pierre for the value you were able to bring us, and thank you to all the other entrepreneurs for sharing experiences during these 7 weeks!
I learned! A lot in a short time. Mainly that the product is only a consequence of structured strategic thinking. What do I like about 34 EL? The American mindset, with good common sense. The method is formidable, everyone feeds off Pierre's experience and that of the cohort
Our 34 EL sessions were a real catalyst for Luminous: we came out with more focus and ambition. It generated great discussions between co-founders and partners; it allowed us to refine our go-to-market and our Business Model. While the first was relatively expected, the focus on the BM was a surprise. Pierre is also very structuring in the process and allows to frame the discussions efficiently. In the end, 34 EL was beneficial for Luminous, with a more strategic and tactical vision and better control of priorities. He was recommended to me (thank you) and I do the same.
Pierre's approach, very American in its mentality, allows us to approach our entrepreneurial project differently, to ask ourselves deep questions and to carry out a real introspection on our startup.
In particular, the work done on our purpose was the real starting point for all the themes discussed in the academy and allowed us to re-align the strategy, the team, the value proposition, the go-to-market, etc.
I appreciated the 1/1 with Pierre, who with his experience and method, made us ask the right questions and go further in our thinking.
I recommend 34 Elements Academy, thank you Pierre
As an early-stage startup entrepreneur, I found working with Pierre really eye-opening in the way to explore all the alternatives and potential about the business case. Highly recommend it for entrepreneurs that want to challenge their vision about the business with an international driven mentality.
Despite a first round with prestigious BAs, I had a skewed reflection of my problems and my startup in general.
Pierre brings you out of the cave and shows you where to look. It's transformative, challenging, and humanly rewarding! Whatever your startup stage and whatever you think you know, go for it!
CEO Iteration X
The program creates a space and structure that forces you to go deeper in key strategic subjects you don't necessary dwell on in your day-to-day operations. Being able to discuss key strategic elements with Pierre, my co-founders and the other entrepreneurs was very powerful. Communicating your ideas clearly and concisely to a diverse group and getting their feedback and insights is game changing.
Thanks to this unique and unorthodox method implemented by Pierre, we completely rethought our model in only a few weeks. We could have reached the same conclusions in several months but thanks to Pierre it only took us 8 weeks! A lot of challenges and questioning are necessary to move in the right direction, even if it takes us out of our comfort zone.
34 elements is a must at any stage of progress, I recommend it to all entrepreneurs! Thanks again Pierre and congratulations for all you do!
If you are looking to seriously challenge your startup or if you are stuck, you have come to the right place! Solo or not solo founders, 34 elements fits all. Just be ready for some sweat- no tears as Pierre is always benevolent- as he is always so spot on. Like a surgeon, he will operate with you on your startup to help you bring it to the next level. A must-have experience and a great investment!
In just a few weeks, we have been able to progress faster than in the last 18 months. Pierre puts his finger on where it hurts and then makes us think so that we alone find ways to correct trajectories. He questions your strategy and your vision and invites you, via the 34th elements platform, to find the answer.
34 Elements allowed us to get a Bird's eye view of our Business. This was especially precious as we're usually caught up in the day to day activities and rarely get the opportunity to get a good objective look of our Business and where it needs improvement.
Pierre, through his unique method, helps us to ask the right questions but above all to structure ourselves thanks to a methodology that places us at the heart of the reflections.
Beyond providing us with the best expertise available, Pierre helps us to bring out our qualities and to have confidence in our choices.
The 34Elements Academy is a unique program, designed and delivered by entrepreneurs who have gone through all the steps they take, which makes it a very legitimate and qualitative program that I recommend to any entrepreneur, at any stage of his project.
I am glad I got introduced to 34 Elements and found in Pierre the entrepreneurial mindset I have always been used to deal with while building my first two companies in California. Pierre and his team will take your startup through a thoroughly thought process consisting of 34 Elements you'll need to address in order to increase the odds of getting your project off the ground. I'd highly recommend anyone taking their project seriously to enroll in this academy and unless you are able to relocate to Silicon Valley, 34 Elements is your best bet. I will be looking out for the new batch of startups going thru and can't wait for the amazing networking opportunities. Keep up the good work guys!
The 34 Elements Academy has been a revolution in my life as an entrepreneur! Pierre changed our vision of the startup, of the business and thanks to this academy we changed our business model to reach a market 50 times bigger than our initial market. This academy teaches us to rethink every part of the business from the team to the market, including the go-to-market, the purpose and analytics and many others. Everything is deconstructed and we ask ourselves questions we never thought we'd ask. It allows us to clearly define our reason for being and for existing. I recommend to any startup to do this extremely enriching experience whatever its stage.
Thank you Pierre!
Starting a company raises thousands of questions which can in turn lead you to millions of answers. Thanks to 34 Elements, you only focus on questions that matter and guide you to the right answers. Moreover, you do this, thanks to a talented team and along with fully engaged fellow entrepreneurs.
Working with Pierre and the 34 elements application was of great help in structuring how to look candidly and objectively at our early-stage startup. It was especially valuable to me for building the strategic thinking and actionable items around the "non-product" part: go-to-market, distribution channels, how to map an early path to revenue. I would absolutely recommend working with Pierre and his methodology- and benefiting from his guidance and wealth of experience.
The ONLY training made by an entrepreneur for entrepreneurs!
No bullshit, 34 Elements gives you the keys to execute well, to question yourself, and to progress while staying focused on what is really important when building your startup! This should be a must to have!
And on top of that, Pierre will give you valuable feedback from his many experiences as an entrepreneur and VC. You'll see, you'll be a better founder after these 8 intensive weeks
Personally, 34 elements is a very useful experience that allowed me to gain confidence in myself, in my entrepreneurial instinct that had been detected a long time ago, but it is only today that I see it. My motivation and ambition have increased tenfold. For our team, it also allowed us to concretely sit down and think about key and founding subjects thanks to the framework and methodology given by Pierre. It is also reassuring to do it with an experienced mentor who guides us along the way. We come out changed, with directions to take, confident that they are the right ones and with new professional reflexes. Then, you have to go!
Co founder, MonitorHR
34 Elements was a real trigger for MonitoHR. We realized the importance of constantly challenging our strategy and the positive impact this has on our performance.
During these 8 weeks, we have been growing as founders but also as a company. We feel better equipped to achieve our ambition.
To summarize the impact of 34elements on Fungu'it in one word: Lucidity.
We are more aware of the challenges to overcome, the assumptions to make and the answers to find.
The road is still long but we have a global and precise vision of how to get there.
34 Elements are 34 seeds that we plant and that give us the keys to build something great.
And unlike some trainings that give us a pile of information that we never consult, here, thanks to Pierre, we apply the elements to our startup, which have led to profound changes since the first week.
As life goes on, 34 elements fell into place in our development! After a first year of commercialization, the program allowed us to take a step back on our activities, identify the weaknesses of our structure, clarify our vision and our strategy, optimize the management of our priorities, strengthen the links between the funding team,... A thousand thanks Pierre! Go accelerate our growth
Such a chance to have been introduced to Pierre.
One of the best choices I have made for my project.
Pierre makes us feel how essential strategy is to our project. He doesn't give you the solution, he makes you touch it and feel it!
The rhythm is intense and captivating.
You thought you have a good idea, 34 elements program will allow you to convince everyone else.
Pierre is a precious help to take a step back and ask yourself the right questions! I highly recommend the 34Elements experience to continue to improve, strengthen your team cohesion and clarify the messages of your startup!
Pierre has a strategic mindset and loves entrepreneurs. 34 Elements help is huge and makes us follow the right track. I'll never be thankful enough. I met exceptional entrepreneurs during the session and learned a lot from their experiences. Every entrepreneur should go through the 34 elements program.
You can join 34 elements with your eyes closed!
In my opinion, you even take much more risks if you don't take this training!!! ;)
Unconscious incompetence is the worst thing for a startup and a founding team. With Pierre Gaubil and 34 elements, you will discover a structure, questioning and keys to improve your business positioning: time savings & pitfalls dodging here we come!
On our side, the change of trajectory is undeniable and we highly recommend it!
It's 8 weeks to deconstruct my preconceived ideas and fears, thanks to tailor-made coaching!
I'm already feeling the effects through my mindset, revisiting my vision, giving it more light, changing the Wizama strategy to ensure its success.
Thank you for this gift. It is a real investment.
"Make haste slowly, and without losing heart,
Twenty times on the loom put your work,
Polish it again and again, and polish it again,
Add sometimes, and often erase."
Pierre is to start-ups what Boileau was to poetry. This path that seemed full of bumps will become a flawlessly smooth highway... after long hours spent questioning everything! :-) Joining 34 elements Academy was very valuable for us. A big thank you to both of them.
34 Elements helped us have a clear look on our company and asked the right questions to address the future. A great product without a concrete strategy is a doomed marriage.
CEO, Sapio Arts
Quite frankly, there will be a before and after. Your program makes us think and helps us a lot. Although I studied in a top school, the clarity of the method is really great. Thank you.
Stop scrolling and pay for your academy now! An entrepreneur takes risks when it comes to making their project a reality. Here is an investment that will do your project a world of good without taking any risks. At least the small doubt concerning the relevance of this academy will disappear instantly after having exchanged with Pierre only a few minutes.
I don't understand the price of this training, it should be much more expensive. I don't understand how entrepreneurs can launch projects without asking themselves all these questions that Pierre addresses with great intelligence both in content and form.
Not everyone is lucky enough to have a trusted advisor at his side, a VC on his board, a senior in his team, a strategy expert to make the right decisions. Pierre is all these people at the same time and for 8 weeks, you will live in the shoes of a real business leader who takes decisions not blindly but with a lot of lucidity and hindsight.
Never do this training if you are not ready to question your project, your person, your ambition, your expertise and especially your offer.
Pierre's coaching lasts 8 weeks but in reality it changes the life of an entrepreneur. Beyond that, Pierre pays a lot of attention to follow his foals long after the academy by giving his time. Don't worry, you'll continue to benefit from Pierre's enormous benevolence while giving you reality checks.
I asked Pierre why he started this academy when he didn't "need" it. He answered "to give a chance to those whom life has forgotten". If you've read this far, you haven't listened to my advice from the beginning, so listen to it now: go sign up for this nugget that Pierre is offering you before he changes his mind!
COO, Go My Partner
34 Elements allowed us to have a better organization between founders and to focus on our objectives. It helped us create a clear product vision to communicate with the team. We have become better entrepreneurs!
Thank you so much! It was really rewarding to live this adventure with you and the rest of the group.
34 Elements Academy was a great help to us to achieve this killer pitch.
The 34 elements methodology coupled with Pierre's outstanding mentoring were a game changer for us and I would highly recommend to any CEO, CTO or COO to carve out some time in their already very busy agenda and work with 34 elements. The ROI is immediate.
34 Elements has been a game changer for us. We have realised how important it was to take the time to discuss Strategy, Product, Vision and Founder’s fit. During these 7 weeks, we have improved as a team but also as a company where we feel now much more confident for the oncoming challenges.
I learned to organize my entrepreneurial insights through 34 Elements. It is so valuable. Thank you Pierre!
34 elements is designed for startups, there are many of them participating and some will soon be in our daily lives.
But 34 elements is also good for entrepreneurs who need to question the fundamentals, even a 17-year-old company like mine, it did me a lot of good both by the method and by the exchanges with Pierre and the other entrepreneurs.
I recommend it to everyone, you will always get something positive out of it in your business conduct.
Thank you Pierre!
More than a lot of new knowledge, 34 Elements offered us a new way to analyze our daily actions, our solution, our strategy...
It is now a new start full of ambition for the Feelback team.
More than a training or an accelerator, 34elements is a simple but efficient framework. Despite 10 years of entrepreneurship, I am grateful to Pierre for allowing me to benefit from it. Thanks to him I can see more clearly, everything is simpler and I can move forward again.
Jean David Rombi
Think you know everything about innovation, reiteration or entrepreneurship in general? Then wait until you attend 34Elements, masterfully led by El Professor.
The program is such that it will be impossible for you not to improve your offering. During eight intense weeks, ask yourself the right questions and answer them straightforwardly. Thank you Pierre and long live 34Elements!
34 elements helped us to see our positioning and our product more clearly. In practice, Pierre knows how to find the words to trigger the necessary actions. It's also a great collective experience! We will definitely come back.
34 elements Academy is a great experience that I highly recommend to any tech entrepreneur who thinks big.
You come out of it transformed (the product, the model, the vision etc), deconstructed and then reconstructed, while asking yourself the right questions. An abrasive but indispensable filter before the big bath, a condensed version of Silicon Valley at high intensity, guaranteed without bullshit, with lots of emulation and good humor inside. Thanks Pierre
