At Inductive Labs we find the conceiving, planning and building of startups as more than just a passion, it is an involuntary muscle spasm.
While startups bring uncertainty, a high risk of failure, and guaranteed exhaustion, they also offer the joys of conception – of creating something from nothing – and the chance to positively impact people and share in the victory of success.
And there has never been a better time to launch a startup. Expertise surrounds us, informing on critical paths and warning of pit-falls. Cloud computing and open mobile and social platforms provide cheap, fertile ground from which great things can grow.
Opportunities are no longer tied to geography; location neither dictates how a business reaches its customers nor how it accesses the talent and resources it needs to expand.
Finally, despite the ever-changing state of the global economy, seed and early stage capital is plentiful. Many factors contribute to this but the simple fact is that startup costs are only going lower, which expands the field of potential seed and angel investors, and the opportunities in need of funding.
Despite all this, the information age is still in its infancy and the landscape changes daily; execution risk and challenges abound. But Inductive Labs is, in part, a response to this risk.
We find strength in our shared knowledge, experience and entrepreneurial drive, and through our joint efforts seek to build businesses stronger and faster.
