As part of its inaugural 13-week program, Wichita’s e2e Accelerator held a “Customer Hack Night” on July 28th. The event helps connects entrepreneurs to mentors in the community. Entrepreneurs are given the opportunity to present on a current business project–everything from branding to pricing–and to seek feedback and advice in an intimate setting.

“Every opportunity I’m provided an audience with the mentors, I always walk away with an additional idea that can be implemented immediately,” said Miguel Johns, founder of KingFit, in a press release. “For KingFit, the first Customer Hack Night has already led to some big changes for our company.”

The event embodies the spirit of e2e, which stands for “entrepreneur-to-entrepreneur.”

“Accelerators, at their core, are driven by the mentors, seasoned entrepreneurs, and industry experts within their communities,” said Jacob Wayman, e2e Director, in a press release. “The Customer Hack Nights are designed to tap into the rich knowledge, skills and experience needed to develop the next generation of entrepreneurs here in Wichita.”

The six companies participating in this summer’s program are: KNOXX, KingFit, Visibility Optics, BuddyRest Pet Products, Tru-Building Inc. and Reverie Coffee Roasters.

The accelerator class ends October 10th.
