People say that entrepreneurs are born, not made. This statement is mostly true; however there are individuals who have selected the path of entrepreneurship for themselves. For the ones who have chosen, there is Mike Pirtle and the Elite Coalition. The ELiTE Coalition Network acts as a vanguard to guide and teach aspiring and early-stage entrepreneurs who want to take their passion or idea to the next level.
ELiTE Coalition Network – or ECN – is a mastermind of entrepreneurs with a common goal: to master their mindset and their business. ECN brings high-level business owners together with cohorts of mentees for targeted mentorship programs and accelerator programs. The component that puts ECN ahead of the pack is their focus on brand and mindset above all. Pirtle, the Founder and CEO of ECN works with his students on mastering the thought process behind the business they want to build.
“Master and protect your IP first,” Pirtle says. “That’s the true value.”
Mike Pirtle is a successful entrepreneur and training leader of the ELiTE Coalition Network. As a serial entrepreneur with expertise in brand and intellectual property development, Pirtle has spent the last 10 years developing a system to help early stage entrepreneurs get clear on their end game. This expertise encouraged him to help others who need a spark of motivation.
ELiTE Coalition Network was started with a mission to help startup entrepreneurs see their potential come to life by developing a go-to-market strategy through digital consulting products. His programs are designed to be accessible to individuals who don’t have the resources to engage expensive consultants charging hundreds of dollars per hour.
“It’s important for these entrepreneurs to understand that even though they don’t have a major budget, they still deserve access to world class support,” says Pirtle.
By providing training in marketing, advertising, and media production, ECN empowers their participants to go further, faster.
Pirtle makes it a point to remind his participants that he’s not just talking the talk. He’s been implementing these strategies and lessons in his own businesses for over a decade. Together with his wife, he owns several other companies. Most notably, Monavation General Contractors and MaidMe, LLC, a residential cleaning service, both based in Indianapolis.
Elite Coalition Network is doing the work of making high-level entrepreneurship achievable to ALL people. To find out more about the ECN suite of programs, click here.
