CTO / Co-Founder: Technical Focused

A little bit about the LAB Miami Ventures

LAB Miami Ventures is a Venture-Builder, creating disruptive new digital businesses based out of The LAB Miami. We ideate new tech businesses and then develop them from scratch in partnership with highly motivated entrepreneurs.

Our vision for the Lab ventures Studio is the following:
- Take a core team & entrepreneurs in residence;
- Add shared infrastructure & in-house funding;
- Generate ideas internally, or in some cases, act as a cofounder;
- Build multiple startups in parallel;
- Trash what doesn’t work, reassign team – so you keep all the expertise;
- Spin off what works into a dedicated company;
- Grow. Exit. Repeat.

What we offer to Co-Founders:

Access to Advisors: Team is a critical factor for a successful startup. We bring in advisors and mentors from our network of veteran entrepreneurs and industry experts.

In-House Development: Our in-house technology team will support you on a day-to-day basis, making sure you develop with highest quality and the lowest cost

Speed to Market: Our network of industry experts and connections to leading corporations can help you get that first pilot for proof-of-concept

Follow-on Funding: Once initial traction is achieved, we will guide you on your first fundraising adventure, with warm introductions to our own investors

What are we looking for?

For our co-founders, we’re not looking for ‘managers’ but for exceptionally skilled and ambitious entrepreneurs. The goal is for each of our startups to become fully independent. So co-founders need to picture themselves running a billion-dollar company in the long term.
