Wikreate Labs defines itself as a “pre-incubator” because we get sooner into
the start up formation process.
We start by recognizing an idea with business and growth potential
-either generated by our internal teams or from our network of contacts – and
then we begin a process to build a company around this idea.
STEP 1: RECOGNIZING AND PRE-VALIDATING THE IDEA
The first step is to pre-validate the idea and its business potential –
discard hare brained or unfeasible ones and/or reorient the idea if
To achieve that, Wikreate Labs teamadoptsfor eachparticularcase the
best suited methodologies - already mentioned.
STEP 2: TEAM FORMATION AND MATCHMAKING
Once the idea is validated, Wikreate Labs proceed to the “aligning and
matchmaking” of thecoreteam, future partners of the company to be created
around the idea.
These future partners will come from Wikreate Labs extended network of
qualified and experienced professionals. Every team will fill out the three
key functions for a successful newborn company:
• CEO: Top level company management, relations with investors, etc.
• CMO: Marketing and Sales.
• CPO: Product definition and development – should have previous
experience in the field.
• CTO: For technology based products and companies.
STEP 3: BETA BUILDING AND LAUNCHING
Once the team isestablishedwe move to work on the “beta” or MVP of the
product. This phase lasts 3 to 6 months aprox. We then refine the
idea/product and confirm and consolidate the team.
Wikreate Labs supports and tutors the team throughout all this process.
STEP 4: NEW COMPANY INCORPORATION
Once the idea is validated, the beta is successfully launched and we are
reassured that the team is the right one and get along well, Wikreate Labs
incorporates an independent company with the equity and role distribution
already agreed upon during Step 2.
Wikreate Labs takes a minority stake on each one of the new companies.
STEP 5: INCUBATION AND ACCELERATION
With the company already incorporated, the product well defined and the
business and growth plans in place, the company goes, if necessary, through
an incubation and/or acceleration process on the most adequate of our
associated incubator and acceleration partners.
Wikreate Labs keeps supervising and tutoring the whole process.
Some of the products and companies already going through the preincubation process:
