We're entrepreneurs, marketeers, ops specialists and techies

EH3 was founded by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. We know how hard it is to build a successful business. It's not magic or luck, its about passion, hard work, resilience and focus. Finance is important, but money can't buy you everything. That's why we like to roll our sleeves up and help in any way we can.
