Real Capital You Need

Most startups are cash strapped yet need a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) to produce traction before getting money for working capital.

We offer custom technology and services as capital, giving you what you actually need to quickly create an MVP.

Our MVP Is Better

Closer To Production


Your MVP is more than just app code. It includes the operational environment it is built, tested, and deployed to.

Since our platform generates entire DevOps projects, your MVP is functionally and operationally closer to its initial production release.

Benefits For Ventures

Clear Advantage


Being a startup investment provider is becoming more and more competitive. Whether attracting the best startups or supporting current ones, it is important to continue to provide value.

Partnering with us gives you and your ventures a clear advantage. Our unique technology lowers your risk and removes the pressure so many startups have of developing and managing an MVP through the first release. With the MVP handled, a startup can stay focused on planning, execution, and value creation

Equally important is we share in the risk with our "zero cash, equity only" offering. This means we have a true stake in driving the success of the startup.
