How we rapidly validate, refine, and build new businesses!

Building a great startup is hard. Really hard. It requires domain expertise, uncommon talent, great execution, great timing, and a little luck. It also requires the ever-elusive great idea. Our team has developed the playbook on how to rapidly validate, refine, and build new businesses.


It could be our idea. It could be your idea
Either way, we put it through the ringer: determining if it can be a world-changing, venture-scale company that customers love.


Every idea we work on sounds good at first.
We put an idea through its paces, testing customer demand, technical feasibility, business model, unit economics, market dynamics, investor interest, and more to determine if it’s worth our time—and yours.


When an idea is a good one, it’s time to move. Fast.
Our team of designers, engineers, data scientists, marketers, and company builders turn a validated concept into a real product in market.


Great companies require extraordinary people and smart capital
Our spinout process is the best method we know of to get a company off the ground, staffed up, and funded by great venture investors as fast as humanly possible.

The Studio Investors

We are currently self funded. Proceeds from the Sarabi Product Lab have primarily funded the projects currently in the studio. Investors can invest in us and thereby invest in current and future projects of the studio.

Got a brilliant idea?
Let’s build with you!

We invest financial and human resources in tech startups as early as the idea stage to turn them into fast growing businesses. These ideas can come from within our team or from intrepid founders applying to build ambitious ventures with us.

We converge ideas, capital, resources, and talent and build the next generation of world-changing and market-defining companies.
