Why few succeed

A handful of teams make creating tech products look easy, but for 70-90% of us, it can feel almost impossible after it's too late. So why do companies like AirBnB consistantly beat the odds? There’s no secret, just an engine with 3 parts, but you need all 3 to run: Process, Talent, and Accountability

1Process

Startup methodologies and product tools are everywhere, but using them is easier said than done.

2Talent

To create, test, and pivot towards success, you need veteran practitioners who know how and when to use the right tools.

3Accountability

Creating products is a team sport, and only works when you have a leader to force the team to take the most critical steps they'd love to skip.

Excelling at 1 is common, 2 is a challenge, but all 3 is rare, which is why we created BLDR: so you can have the best shot at beating the odds with a working engine from the start.

What is BLDR?

Part

Veteran Cofounders

We join your team as product veterans, help you raise money when you need it, and become invested advisors for the lifetime of your company.

Part

Product Incubator

We follow an hour-by-hour process to methodically prove an idea has real traction or discover a new one with measured results.

Part

Design Agency

We design everything you'll ever need as a business and prototype a proven product so that our development partners can bring it to life.

Team

We band together as one team

A healthy and effective team is the only place to start. We combine your great ideas with our veteran experience to not just build a great product, but an unstoppable team.

Process

We lead the way with our tested process

The path to success is undefined and the journey is unpredictable. With best practices, purpose-built tools, and lessons learned the hard way, we find the right path and are ready for whatever lies ahead.

We turn assumptions into validation

The assumptions of your initial idea are the first clues towards validating your opportunity. We use code-free experiments to discover the best idea with data-driven results.
