Our approach to building successful startups is unique. Take a step-by-step tour of the process.
We research traditional industries in Mexico and LATAM that have historically under-invested in technology and identify “low hanging fruit” opportunities – where a small amount of technology could have large impact.
We work with business leaders in these sectors to validate both the problem and the solution and pre-negotiate license agreements with them as users/customers.
Once we’ve removed the product-to-market risk, we create a company, invest a modest amount of money into it, and install it within Agave Lab for six months of incubation.
Using our in-house design/development team we immediately go to work on the product. We recruit an executive team and provide them with intensive, daily, hands-on mentoring.
Throughout the 6 month incubation period, we recruit developers to the project and they mirror, 1-for-1, the members of the Agave Lab team.
Our goals are to launch the first product within 4 months and achieve profitability within 6 months. By this point the company has a product, customers, revenue, and a stable foundation to build on.
The company moves out of the incubator and into its own facility ready to take on the world. We stay involved with weekly check-ins but are free to start on the next one.
