Echelon is a company-building engine for a new economy shaped by ubiquitous data and a changing climate. We support entrepreneurs creating bold new startups by providing shared infrastructure that seamlessly integrates capital, technical, operating, and network resources.

Who we are

We believe that if entrepreneurs are to build bold, new companies that can shape our tomorrow, they deserve independent thinking and freedom from dependencies on external decision makers and unnecessary bureaucracy.

To enable that, we have created a decentralized ecosystem that provides founders with a toolkit of resources – operating, network, data science, as well as a financial toolkit. All this, in a culture that values the style and flair of being different from the mainstream and respects the need to play by one’s own rules.

We are committed to our goal of solving hard problems in data and climate, give back to the communities in which we live and work, and operate under our nonzero values by rejecting zero-sum thinking to lift those up around us.
