We help innovative people with great ideas start great businesses. We do this by providing creative space, business services and initial funding. This allows the innovator to remain focused on the great idea, and encourages the innovative spirit. As a great idea develops into a viable business opportunity, we connect the innovator with entrepreneurs and investors to further transform the great idea into a great business.
Our approach is based on the reality that innovators are not necessarily entrepreneurs, and that limited financial resources often stifle great ideas. We understand these obstacles, and evaluate ideas primarily on merit rather than business model. We seek out ideas that go beyond the ordinary, address a problem from a unique perspective, or challenge the status quo. Once an idea is selected, we initiate and operate the early stage business, and work with the innovator to create an investable business plan. We offer affordable rates, or take an equity position in the business when we fund a great idea.
