"Jake and the team has been there supporting me every step of the way and he is the best mentor I’ve ever had. This changed my life in a very short amount of time and I look forward to a long relationship of working with them."
"The team was key in our ability to impress without having a product built yet. Having the skills to sell our vision helped us open doors and get us to where we are now."
Brandon Martinez, Founder of Snkrhud
Building a startup the right way isn't cheap, and you'll need experts to help you along the way. We give you our expertise and put our money on the line for ambitious non-technical founders who join Launchpeer.
Starting a startup isn't free, especially if you do it the right way. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. In the past at a minimum you'd have to pay for...
Most entrepreneurs have to dig deep into their pockets to come up with the money necessary to do all this.
On top of that, you'd have to become an expert in hiring people you've never hired before.
Before you know it, you've likely spent tens of thousands of your own money with little to show.
We're 'investor-operators', which means we co-invest with you. Your $5K investment mixed with our $20K investment pays for our team to help you with all the legal, accounting, branding, and design needs your startup has to get off the ground.
Because we co-invest with you, we're 100% tied to your success long term, as our $20K investment doesn't get recouped unless you are successful, defined as you raising at least $100K in follow on funding.
Instead of having to go look for a ton of skill sets to help you turn your idea into something real, you'll have our team's help all in one place.
Gone are the days of using an MVP to get to market. Consumers today are spoiled, and investors with them, and they expect something great. Our team will work with you to design a beautiful brand and interactive Prototype that shows off your vision, wows your prospects, and impresses investors.
Back in 2010, building an MVP (minimum viable product) became very popular after startups like Facebook, Uber, and AirBNB became famous for using one to get traction.
The problem? 10 years is a lifetime in the technology space. Consumers today are spoiled; if your app isn't GREAT from the minute they start using it, they'll delete it and move on (something they weren't able to do 10 years ago because there weren't as many options).
We've seen non-technical founders spend tens of thousands and months of time building and iterating on an MVP only to see all that time go to waste.
Investors also won't fund a startup with an MVP if users won't use it (which they probably won't; remember, consumers are spoiled, and that means investors are too).
Our team will build you a Prototype. An interactive design that shows your product vision, the IDEAL vision, not terrible looking MVP, allows you to gather feedback from potential users before anyone writes code, but also lets you sell an investor on your vision prior to dropping tons of your own money on development.
You'll save tens of thousands on development. You can utilize your Prototype for the same purposes you would have used the MVP for, but Prototypes are much less costly to make (and our team does it for you as part of the initial $25K investment).
Also, our customers have a 22X higher success rate raising follow-on funding (next step) only using their Prototype versus trying to squeak by with an MVP.
Once we've helped you set up your company, design your brand, and design & build your interactive Prototype, you'll need funding for things like app development, sales, marketing, and operational expenses. Our funding experts will help you raise $100K+.
Raising funding is hard, and most founders aren't able to do it. In the past founders would rely on advice like...
This stuff doesn't work.
That's why only 3% of all startups raise funding, and the ones who do it takes them over 14 months to get it. By then most startups are already dead in the water.
At it's core, raising funding is just a sales and marketing process.
The only difference between it and selling a $9/month subscription or a $1K product is that you're trying to sell someone on giving you a $25K+ check. That's it.
BUT most entrepreneurs don't know how to do high ticket sales. Prospecting, targeting, cold email and LinkedIn outreach, touch points, what to say, how to say it, how to negotiate, how to structure an offer, etc.
That's what we do for the founders we work with. Once you start treating your funding like a sales and marketing issue, it all comes down to a numbers game.
Our founders are able to consistently book investor meetings utilizing the outbound sales and marketing techniques we teach and help them implement.
Then raising funding becomes a numbers game.
Need to raise $1M instead? Double how many investors we do outreach to and we got it.
