IgniteHQ member Kode Smart Labs is driving the success of early stage companies by servicing the most important need to all startups – technology.
A startup itself, Kode Smart Labs formed after its founder noticed a significant deficiency in technology support among entrepreneurs.
“We noticed many early-stage companies failing due to lack of a CTO (Chief Technology Officer) or not having technology know-how to execute or simply lack a technology strategy” said one of its founders. “Every new company requires a technology wing as it grows. We take working and delivery models from big technology services companies and translate them for smaller companies,” he added.
Today, Kode Smart Labs, a software development and IT advisory firm, is helping early-stage companies flourish.
The company aims to provide a complete portfolio of services ranging from software, mobile/web development to graphical design to quality and testing services. While the demands of each early stage company is unique, Kode Smart Labs realizes the needs are different, as well.
According to the website, Kode Smart Labs professionals “have a proven track record to communicate at board level as well as throughout organizations on any technical issue from overall technology related strategy to day-to-day business requirements.” Essentially, Kode Smart Labs acts as the CTO or a Technology wing for its clients.
“We develop solutions for whatever a company needs, and no work is small for us. Our focus will be on companies that has a promise to grow or are already doing business” said a founder.
This new firm is already closing a steady stream of business including developing a Cloud strategy for a video graphics client, managing an eCommerce system for a security products firm and structuring the technology division for an early stage company positioning for a Series A capital raise.
The Kode Smart team tout their flexible pricing models as a strong attraction as well. Deals are uniquely structured to fit the needs of each individual client, including partial equity in the startup. They can also structure to set-up a development center with a transferable risk model.
“We want to help companies with all their software development needs,” said one of the founders. “We’re making these types of services more affordable for early stage companies.”
