Heres how we help startups and nonprofits

Startups live and die by their ability to acquire new customers. Even if you have a good product/market fit on paper, you have to constantly fight to gain traction…and that too on a tight budget. CoLauncher is a force multiplier that augments your small team wherever necessary – with strategy, branding, promotion, design, engineering – to break through the noise and reach new customers.

Let’s figure out why your idea is unique. Let’s really understand the problem you’re going to solve — and how you’ll do it differently. And let’s figure out why anyone but your mom is going to care about it.

They say that no idea, no product, is original anymore.But it can always be done better. We’ll do market research, competitor analysis and content strategy to make sure we have a plan before going down the rabbit hole.

Design isn’t just pretty visuals and branding. By thinking through personas, workflows, user experience and testing, we’ll be ready to knock their socks right off.

Step 1. Idea. Step 2. Build it? Wrong. Let’s understand your target demographic, revenue model, budgets and launch plans to create a minimally viable product. Know the difference between a great product and a dud? Damn. Good. Planning.

App or Website? It’s not really that simple. Let’s evaluate your users, budgets, timelines and current and future needs to pick the right technology platforms for your product.

We both know when your product launches it’s going to be massive. Who keeps the machines running, manages SEO, handles support or overnight updates? We’ll provide the army that keeps your masterpiece purring along.

You wear a fitbit to track your health. So why would you put your product without tracking of it’s own?? With analytics and social engagement, let’s see how people are using your product and what they think about it.

Lets be honest. You can’t just open your doors and expect people to walk on in. Outreach, promotion, social engagement and beta customers are important parts of opening big. And they should start long before the doors are even installed.

Even the best ideas need money to grow. We’ll prep you to pitch to investors – with the right business plan, demos and prototypes. In some cases, we’ll even fund it ourselves.

An agency for startups – what’s that about?

We’ve worked with over a dozen Fortune 500 companies and a truck load of agencies. Large corporates have large budgets and typical agencies are setup to service these large clients with inflated staffing.

large staff = large overheads = large margins

Well guess what. You are paying for that large staff. We partner with you to be more inventive, flexible, lean and creative. En route to world domination.

Big ideas ≠ big success.

Success is in the planning, process and execution. Unlike typical agencies, CoLauncher works with a very small number of innovators each year to build and launch companies. We task our entire team to help flesh out your feature set, develop your business goals, conduct market research, evaluate UI/UX and produce iterative designs and development.
