Incubate - We imagine, develop, and commercialize the idea all within the confines of STN Labs. As you are not a member of our team, this option is likely the least interesting to you, dear reader.
Joint Venture - We provide financial and human capital for a partnership to help grow an existing business. This approach is typically used in a situation where an existing business comes to us looking to develop a coherent internet strategy; a retailer trying to establish or increase internet sales, for example. The partner continues to handle distribution and fulfillment, while STN creates and/or assumes responsibility of the online channel.
Our criterion for this category is an operating business, preferably cash flow positive in its offline operations, with a capable management team. STN funds its own development efforts and structures the joint venture in a way most convenient for our partners, so that there is no risk of lost revenue or capital to the offline business.
This is the model that interests STN the most, and where we spend most of our time.
Invest - We invest cash in an idea that is presented to us by an external source. Often that source is someone we know or is introduced to us by a friend, but we also hear ideas from folks we have never met or on behalf of an investment syndicate.
Our core competency is technology. We do not restrict our funding to technology, and have investments outside of that sphere, but preference is always given to technology companies.
We have pre-revenue companies as well as companies with existing sales, and status of the primary product ranges from undeveloped to fully commercialized. We typically invest anywhere from $50,000 to $1,000,000.
