Become a Cofounder

IpserLab, LLC is the equitable startup foundry. We organize teams of cofounders who earn equity by launching new startups. In the traditional approach to startups, one or more founders with an idea seek funding to quit their jobs and execute on their idea full-time. Much time and energy is focused on forming a visionary idea, chasing investment funding, and building initial momentum. By contrast, IpserLab cofounders keep their day jobs and create a startup while moonlighting. They focus on solving a wicked problem through experimentation and discovery and share equitably in the fruits of their efforts. If you've always wanted to be a startup cofounder but quitting your job is not an option then consider joining.

Join a Startup Founding Team


Are you an experienced software engineer looking for an opportunity to apply your skills to build a great product from scratch? Great products come from great teams with complementary software develoment expertise: front end, back end, full stack, and mobile.


Marketing a new startup is a unique challenge. Identifying new markets, educating customers, guiding the engineering team, it's like nothing you've ever experienced. Every startup team needs a marketing cofounder.


You haven't tested your selling skills until you've tried selling a product before it's been built. Early sales can be key to finding a viable business model.
