Founder Labs

emerging market startups Founder LabsFounder Labs is the place to meet your founding team and build your new mobile startup.

Founder Labs isn’t an incubator, it isn’t a program, it’s something unique. It’s an experience. It’s an opportunity. It’s a select group of people with one common mission, launch a new mobile venture. Not everyone succeeds but everyone gets an equal shot to try. Founder Labs is a 5 week opportunity focused on the first phase of launching a mobile startup.

Over the course of five weeks, you’ll go through the important first phases of launching a company from building the right team to validating your concept.

Here, you will meet the UX designers, developers, hackers and product geniuses needed to form your founding team. Through weekly talks and access to mentors, you will learn the technical and lean startup skills needed to validate your business ideas, figure out the right product-market fit, build rapid prototypes and test with real customers.

What does a typical Founder Labs class look like? Some stats:

  • Average class size of 15-20 (four to five teams)
  • 10 engineers/developers
  • 5 designers
  • 5 business/marketing mavens

Our secret sauce? Building diverse founding teams. It’s true — teams from varied backgrounds are more successful, last longer and are more innovative. Diversity is strength.

MOBILE FOCUS

Founder Labs is focused on the launch of new startup ideas in the mobile space. Beyond just a mobile gaming app we want you to think broadly of sustainable business opportunities. These might include: enterprise apps, consumer apps, cloud services, mobile security, mobile enablers (eg. authentication, payment, middleware), mobile analytics, devices, smart grid solutions. To date, Founder Labs companies have been consumer focused, however we encourage teams to explore all areas of the mobile startup space. As needed, we will bring Mentors to match what you may be working on.
