What we do

At FutureLabs Ventures, we partner with large corporations to design and build ecosystem ventures. Equally, we focus on identifying the best-of-breed B2B digital ventures and scale them into regional and global leaders.

We take a hands-on business building approach to our portfolio companies – offering them unparalleled market access, scalable technology and a unique network of entrepreneurial talent.

Venture Labs

Venture Labs

Developing a portfolio of digital ventures is the most sustainable way for large corporates to innovate. We ideate, build and scale new ventures from scratch in partnership with corporates. We combine our deep expertise with "at scale" assets of our corporate partners to create an unfair advantage in co-creating ventures that have significantly higher chance of success and returns.

Our proprietary venture building methodology, VC mindset and distinctive entrepreneurial talent ensure the launch of best of the breed new ventures. The corporate partner can optimize benefits from strategic fit, higher control and financial returns. Over the past 5 years, we have launched over 30 new digital ventures that have become regional or global players.

Scale-up Labs

Scale-up Labs

A significant majority of corporate innovation initiatives fail to reach its full potential. Many factors contribute to the difficulty to scale up a venture idea in a corporate environment. We take a hands-on entrepreneurial and VC approach with our corporate partners to drive the scale-up of venture initiatives to desired results.

Our scale-up team has deep industry execution expertise in scaling emerging start-up ventures into efficient & scalable businesses that achieve 10X returns, ensuring maximum ROI on corporate’s investment.

Global Foundry

Global Foundry

Corporates can no longer rely on organic innovation alone. Yet, when they turn to partnering with digital natives, they are often overwhelmed by numerous startups addressing a specific pain point – making it difficult to identify truly best-in-class innovators. On top of that, startup partnerships take a long time to execute and seldom move from proof-of-concept to production.

FutureLabs Ventures’ foundry teams work with corporate partners to ideate, design and formulate a foundry that aligns with corporate vision and innovation strategy. Our foundries identify and vet best-in-class startups and establish partnerships (equity or non-equity) that generate real value at scale.

We create rich startup partnership ecosystems that focus on complementing our corporate partners' product suite (i.e. by generating more revenues), address internal digital transformation challenges (i.e. cost reduction) and/or provide a rich pipeline of investable opportunities for corporate venture capitalists (CVCs).

What our corporate partners say

Ex-Global Head of ING Venture Labs

Ivar Wiersma

FutureLabs Ventures really helped us set up shop quickly, ensured that we had the right entrepreneurial talent and guided the early stages of the ventures in the lab. The results were significant in that we already have 3 companies in MVP stage and have established partnerships with 2 companies and a 3rd one is under way.
