e2E (entrepreneur to Enterprise) Recognized as Top 1/3 of Ingram's Magazine Fastest Growing Companies
When Nancy McCullough set out almost seven years ago to start e2E, she had a specific mission in mind – to help companies grow. Now she finds herself in that same position with average annual revenue growth of 71.4% from 2015-2018.
“Our mission is simple; to help companies grow,” said McCullough, CEO of e2E and former CFO for the Kauffman Foundation. “There was a major market opportunity when I opened e2E to help startups, small businesses and nonprofits under 500 employees. Most of these organizations have limited senior management and the CEO takes on the responsibilities of accounting, payroll, HR and marketing. We’ve brought all of that together as a brain trust to serve these underserved organizations. That’s where e2E comes in.”
In a 2019 Small Business Trends & Statistics Report, Guidant Financial and LendingClub teamed up to survey more than 2,700 current and aspiring business owners nationwide. The top challenges for small business owners match the categories of e2E’s offerings. Among them: lack of capital/cash flow, marketing/advertising, recruiting/retention of employees, administrative work (bookkeeping and payroll), and managing benefits.
“Business has been good for e2E. Once clients understand our services and realize the critical strategic guidance we offer, they are anxious to get started to alleviate their pain points,” McCullough said.
That growth landed e2E on Ingram’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies, an honor McCullough is excited about. “We come from a genuine place of helping companies grow and to find ourselves making that list is an honor. We hope to continue to see clients be added to the ranks of Kansas City companies on the move. That’s great for the community as small business makes up 98% of the U.S. economy,” she continued.
e2E has also been honored as a Thinking Bigger Business Media’s 25 Under 25 recipient. McCullough was accepted into the Helzberg Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program and she and her leadership team continue to mentor small businesses through their daily work.
McCullough continued, “Along our trajectory, we envision taking e2E to additional markets to continue to strengthen small business growth. However, that step will fall in line with our focused plan as we ourselves continue to grow and serve.”
