Overview

Cogo Labs is on a mission to de-risk entrepreneurship by analyzing billions of data points to build and scale capital efficient companies that drive impact and create value. In a world where access to capital is biasing which populations can pursue entrepreneurship, we give smart, innovative founders the tools they need to test their offerings based on merit. Over the past twelve years, we’ve created the technology and processes to incubate successful companies, and we’re just getting started.

Our Mission

To launch and accelerate internet companies with our data, tech and analytics. We identify business opportunities with our data assets, run internal experiments on our platforms, and spin out profitable portfolio companies with strong revenue growth. Cogo Labs is here to provide anything that helps an internet startup grow quickly. Anything that accelerates an internet company needs to become part of Cogo.

Our Vision

  • To support 30 concurrent companies in the incubator.
  • We aspire to transform the way that companies are built by creating a culture of innovation, collaboration, and inclusivity that extends beyond our four walls.
  • To provide the fastest career-development paths for energetic, optimistic, self-directed, technically-minded people.

Culture

What does it mean to be a Cogonaut?

Our culture is ambitious, supportive, and bold. We solve problems faster by sharing our insights with each other. Our team is talented and driven; always taking opportunities to both teach and learn as we push each other to ask, “What’s next?” We celebrate each other's successes and recognize those who go above and beyond - our CogoStars.

We embody our values to help build a positive, innovative, and team-oriented environment every day.
