The world of startups is a world of endless opportunity, if you are able to grasp it. Starting from a blank paper without guidance could turn into great art or a botched sketch, and almost everything depends on who is holding the pen. As a venture builder we create startups repeatedly by providing human and financial capital through 1337Works proven formula.
Together with you, the entrepreneur, we develop your idea from a post-it note to become the next successful company of tomorrow. Our common goal is to build something special, together.
As a partner to a Venture Builder, you will have a co-founder that is competent throughout the entrepreneurial spectrum, doing the journey with you, and sharing in all challenges. 1337Works will be invested in the company already from when the idea was something written on a post-it note to when the company is ready to stand on its own legs. We will together put in place the product, teams, a value adding board, enter into the market and handle necessary administration as well as optimizing the journey with our vast network and our competent advisors.
The goal is to transform. Transform you into a successful entrepreneur, your idea into a successful company, and your vision into reality, together.
We house our companies in our offices, allowing us to provide all the basic services needed to function. In other words, all the easily missed activities and resources that are essential in the early stages of a startup but often overlooked or difficult to finance by yourself: Financial Management, Legal consultancy, Human Resources, meeting facilities, coffee and snacks.
Our team has been involved in building various businesses. Here are just a few examples that we are extremely proud of. Will your idea be the next one?

Money is always in short supply in a startup. If your know-how and drive are the bricks, capital is the mortar of building your company, and when the business is taking off it is the fuel of driving your growth. This means there is always a need for funds. Unfortunately this means entrepreneurs need to focus on acquiring capital which means less time and effort can be put towards actually working with the core business. The compromise often leads to lack of progress or shortage of cash, both detrimental to the startup.
To circumside this generic problem, we have a very specific solution. Through our connected investment company and angel network the path to capital is short and direct.
