reinventing startup model

  • Better ideas

    We do not bother filtering through thousands of crappy ideas on the market. Instead, we have a process of generating good ideas in-house, which is performed by an analytical department and is based on solid market facts and trends. We focus on web, mobile, big data, saas industries and growing billion dollar markets. And no copycats.
  • Stronger founders

    Great founders are crucial to a startup’s success. That is exactly why we source our founders from smart, experienced, fast-learning, and eager-to-build-a-global company people. It’s just that they don’t happen to have their big idea yet and lack some knowledge and experience in the startup business. But that’s where we back them.

    Beside having our own educational program, we are an operator of the Founder Institute program for startup founders in Saint-Petersburg. Prior to diving deep in the startup world, our founders build up their muscle and prepare for the fight by going through either of the programs. Structured knowledge never hurts.

    Navigating a path to success in a startup takes knowledge, experience, persistence, right partners, and a bit of luck. We can’t provide luck, we do act as co-founders to our startups, which involves formulating hypothesis, talking to customers, prototyping, making early sales, etc. In short, we just make sure everything is done right.
  • Backed by community

    Each startup in CoffeeLab community has an unfair advantage of access to talents, other startup's services, insights, support and share costs opportunities. With each startup we grow our network, including customers, investors, advisors and talents who love to work with our companies.
  • Funding ready

    Globally oriented startups need investors to reach to the stars. Clear traction, investor kits, and Q&A worked out is what sets our startups apart from others. Moreover, the startups are Delaware-based C-corporations carefully prepared by top level law firm.
