An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it.

- William Bernbach

THE ULTIMATE WAY TO TURN A SOFTWARE-BASED IDEA INTO A BUSINESS.

We work with very early stage software-based ideas. We move faster by bringing together all the vital components that contribute to an idea’s success; software knowledge , business knowledge, capital, and a valuable network of partners. We are the ultimate all-you-need destination to turn a software-based idea into a business.

Henrik Ljungdahl

Developer and entrepreneur in the making

"It was incredibly exciting to see how an idea that had been boiling in my head for at least a decade, but that always felt too overwhelming to get started with alone, was well received, encouraged and refined into an investor pitch in just 9 days."

Sinisa Dolinac

Project Manager gone innovative

"For me, the best part of 1337Works is the multilayered approach. Most of people, when they think about their idea, have a tendency to look at it only from their point of view. Developers think about code and implementation, sales people think about the market and sales channels, etc. That is completely normal because our image of the world is shaped by our (professional) experiences. 1337Works ensures that an idea is assessed from all perspectives from the start, thus enabling a process that is less prone to error and ensuring the best possible outcome."
