We believe we can co-create strong ventures by investing in those that are:
- Pre-product to modest revenue.
- Composed of domain expert founding teams, even if they can’t code.
- Working through the Coplex Startup Studio accelerator programs, which provide active support in product development.
- Utilizing the Coplex Startup Studio accelerator programs to speed up time to market and reduce wasted cash in the process.
The technology companies built on top of the internet are no longer confined to just the technology sector. Today, the internet is integrating itself into the core of every sector in our economy. With ubiquitous connectivity and emerging technology, we see increasing demands for the new internet ventures globally.
How We Do It
We see an unsolved problem in the startup industry. While plenty of expert founding teams have great concepts, many don’t qualify for traditional seed-funding or accelerator programs due to lack of coding or product development experience.
For highly capable ventures that may not have all the puzzle pieces to be successful, we complete and support the founding team.
Even qualified teams unknowingly head down a road of misguided product development efforts because their primary resources (seed funds, angel groups, and startup incubators/accelerators) don’t always provide the support needed to avoid common pitfalls. We want to step in before valuable time/money is wasted building the wrong products. Coplex Ventures gives high-potential startups a chance at success by providing the funding they need and access to our expert team at the Coplex Startup Studio.
Why do we do it?
The Coplex ecosystem, including Coplex Ventures and Coplex Studios, is built to serve, elevate, and connect global startup communities.
