Michael R. Nadeau
Early in his career, owner and founder Michael Nadeau recognized a passion for health and wellness. An entrepreneur at heart, Michael saw an opportunity to positively impact the health of the masses through the corporate world.
When he started receiving IV therapy treatment, Michael quickly felt improvements in his brain health, metabolism, athletic recovery, and immune support. With a wife and four young children, a rigorous travel schedule for many years, and some extreme hobbies, IV therapy was an effective way to take care of his body on the cellular level. Seeing a quick impact in himself made him think about the impact it could have on a larger audience.
Humans have an innate desire to always want more. In today’s world, even just to maintain, you can’t rely on what you did yesterday. Without companies like Apple, Google, Disney or Amazon, there would be no innovation. We are in a constant state of moving forward.
Eleven is an aspiration to always be better. A reminder that innovation never sleeps. A prompt to never settle. Eleven represents the notion that there are always more possibilities.
People (at least those over age 40) often ask if it’s a Spinal Tap reference. We do love that movie, but no, it didn’t start there. Take the humor away and ask yourself, “Why can’t it go louder?” Why does it have to stop there? We think it can always go louder. We are never going to stop.
With five portfolio companies – Eleven Collective, Eleven IV, Eleven Motorsports, Eleven Wellness and Engineering 11 – each of these portfolio companies operates at a more efficient level because of the ability to share services and resources.
His most recent venture is Engineering 11. After assembling a top tier team of developers and designers to build cnect and other software products, Michael found a way to “Engineer Simple.” Engineering 11 builds, operates, and maintains software platforms across a variety of industries. Together with Eleven Collective, they provide comprehensive, cost-effective marketing solutions to both startup and established brands.
