What We Do

We identify, support and invest in entrepreneurs driven by passion to build great companies. At Ideal Labs, we help entrepreneurs by removing the burdensome procedures of starting a business and provide access to business support, mentorship, funding, and the network to build and grow the next generation of successful businesses.

We provide support to early stage startups through our year-round programs. Starting with Startup 101 Sessions, where entrepreneurs with ideas learn to turn it into a viable business to the Ideator Hackathon where entrepreneurial-minded individuals come together to learn, build & create companies. Throughout the year we support & encourage networking with our Founders series of socials. We support early stage startups to the point where they have built something repeatable, scalable and impressive enough to raise money, then leading to the LaunchPad show where they are able to showcase their company and share their story.

Since 2015, we've funded over 9 startups.

With over 60 in our community of founders.

With a combined valuation of over $30M.
