EARLY FUNDING OF TECH STARTUPS

Networking, Insight & funding

ACCELERATING TOP TIER STARTUPS

Since 2012 we have supported more than 300 technology startups, and 74% of them are still growing! We are currently working with 80+ members in our tech incubators in Oslo and Bergen!

StartupLab alumni companies include Zwipe, Kahoot, ReMarkable, Huddly and No Isolation.

Our network is the core asset at StartupLab. Our team, members, alumni and external network – consisting of engaged industry experts, serial entrepreneurs, investors and scientists – actively share their network, knowledge and experiences that benefit the group as a whole. We believe this is what it takes to enable just a few people to create something great in a short time span, that would usually require the work of hundreds. Our mission is to help make our entrepreneurs successful.

What's the deal?Top tier community requires
top tier people.

We expect everyone to participate, be committed and work hard. In return, we will open up our network to you and actively support you for 12 months.

We will not steal your time, or meddle in your decision making. You will however get access to workshops, mentors, investors, data science labs (AI/IoT etc), hardware lab, free legal advice and accounting services and – of course – office and meeting room facilities.

There are no strings attached and no extra costs. Membership prices start as low as 2290 NOK/month, excl. taxes. And, if necessary, you can easily cancel your membership on a one-month notice.

Making life easier for startups is about more than just advice. Our strongest asset is our community, consisting of alumnis, mentors, industry experts and corporate partners all eager to pay it forward to current members. It’s not unusual that member’s find their first customers within our community.

Our environment should allow you to focus exclusively on building and selling your product. Founder-friendly capital, introductions to potential customers as well as advice should help you do this faster. Experiment tirelessly until you find product-market fit, and grow as fast as possible once you have it.

FROM FOUNDER TO FOUNDER

Being entrepreneurs ourselves we know the importance of funding at an early stage.

Together with some of Norway’s most successful entrepreneurs we provide funding to the most committed, ambitious and passionate tech entrepreneurs. When you succeed we expect you to pay it forward – as our founders do.

How we invest

We typically invest in the first equity round, in the range of $100-300K – enough money to make an early impact and get you off the ground.

This should also keep you moving for the time we provide the most support. We ask for 10-15% equity in return, meaning not enough to mess up your cap table. We provide support, but you remain in charge of your business, and our terms are founder friendly and hassle-free. All the legal stuff is taken care of by us.

StartupLab Founders

This is our source of financing. StartupLab Founders was initiated by StartupLab together with a group of successful entrepreneurs.

Our common bond is that we are all triggered by the idea of getting ambitious talent off the ground. The group of founders represent an accumulated network and insight that has proven immensely valuable to the StartupLab community.
