While entrepreneurs have access to a host of resources that provide financial capital, they often struggle to find engineers with the expertise and knowledge to turn their groundbreaking ideas into a reality. Village88 techLab fills this void by investing human capital — the collective resources of a team of highly skilled and successful web developers — in exchange for equity or other forms of compensation. This approach ensures that entrepreneurs are not only able to realize their vision, but that the resulting product is robust, dynamic, and optimized for successful entry into the market.
We can partner with businesses at any stage of their product lifecycles, ranging from a working prototype, a minimum viable product, or a go-to-market scalable product.
We look for entrepreneurs who not only have enthusiasm and passion for their business, but who truly understand their market and have in-depth knowledge of their industry.
After the startup week, or customer discovery and validation stage, we are here to work with you to build the prototype.
During the incubation stage when you need to build out the MVP to launch you business to target customer, we will build you MVP to enable you for the next phase of business.
Before the full-scale market launch, we will help you build a fully scalable product for market launch.
“ It takes a village of resources and support to make it happen. ”
We strive to enable entrepreneurs to fulfill their true product potential by providing world-class, cutting-edge web development engineering resources.
We partner with entrepreneurs from around the globe with ideas and products that serve a wide range of industries.
We set clear milestones as we go so that there is a clear, mutual understanding of our progress. Knowing there is no one-size-fits-all approach, we work with each business to define the partnership for product acceleration. Our process is captured though our signature A-B-L-E program:
We seek top-notch, passionate entrepreneurs.
Our application process provides us the chance to get to know you better. When we find a fit, we will schedule meetings to understand your product, company, and team, then will provide you a proposal on how to move forward.
Agile development process
We will work with you to define the scope of work. Based on your preference of involvement, we utilize agile development process to share visibility of work and progress.
Once the work is completed, based on our mutual interests, we can provide additional dedicated support for your product.
As we are approach the end of the program, we will work with you on the exit plan. As needed, we will help you to hire the right talent and provide coaching as necessary to ensure a smooth transition. We see our partnership as an investment in your team and business, and we will do whatever we can to ensure your next phase of success.
