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.
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!
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!

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.
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 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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
34 Elements Academy was a great help to us to achieve this killer pitch.
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.
"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, 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
