WHAT WE DO

Agave Lab is a combination of a venture capital firm and a startup incubator. The model is called a “Company Builder”.  Beyond that we attend product/software development needs of these companies along with external startups customers that we help with their own projects.

WHO WE ARE

We are a group of designers, developers, and product managers, that operate out of the Agave Lab incubator in Guadalajara. We have a 700 M2 facility with a pool, and a garden in the coolest Colonia in GDL.

We have a very informal workplace and culture – flip flops and shorts are just fine. We work hard and are dedicated to quality but, for the most part, it’s a relaxed and stress free place to work. We all genuinely like each other and, most days, we look forward to coming to work.
