We invest in select software startups who are:
- Composed of domain expert founding teams, even if they can’t code.
- Pre-product to modest revenue.
- On a short-term path to revenue.
- Subscription, marketplace, on-demand, digital media, SaaS, NewCommerce, or consumer app business models.
- Able to get significant value from the accelerator programs offered by the Coplex Startup Studio.
The software companies built on the internet are no longer confined to the technology sector. Today, software is integrating itself into the core of every sector in our economy. With ubiquitous connectivity and emerging technology, we see increasing global demands for new internet software ventures. Coplex Ventures seeks to invest in founding teams who understand their sectors well, then empower them to build technology companies in those industries.
How We Do It
We see an unsolved problem in the venture landscape. Strong founding teams with subject-matter expertise, industry influence, and new startup concepts don’t qualify for traditional seed-funding or accelerators due to lack of coding or product development experience.
We partner with highly-capable domain expert founders to start new software companies in the space they know best. It's okay if they can't code.
They don’t need development experience because each of our investments gets to be part of the Coplex Startup Studio accelerator programs We use the Coplex Lean Process to save them time and money. That’s how we take new concepts to revenue in as little as 8 weeks and to a $5M valuation in as little as 6 months. It’s core to how we’ve co-created over 250 internet ventures.
Why do we do it?
The Coplex ecosystem is built to serve, elevate, and connect global startup communities.
The Coplex Studio Difference
In the traditional Accelerator model, founders provide leadership, product development, and coding expertise. The Accelerator supports with domain experts and capital.
In our Startup Studio model, founders provide leadership, domain expertise, and passion for their great concept. The Startup Studio supports with lean product development and coding (supported by capital from Coplex Ventures or their own funding.).
