echoseven labs 

a startup studio

We focus on opportunities in the digital media and entertainment space.

So What’s a Startup Studio?

There is no one standard definition of ‘startup studio’. From giants like Science Inc. and betaworks to boutique underdogs like echoseven labs – each studio tweeks the model based upon the team’s skills and access to capital. echoseven labs follows a simple model of ‘small teams working on multiple projects in parallel with reusable infrastructure’. We hope some projects turn into products and eventually into companies. It’s a great model for entreprenuers of all kinds. We wrote a little about here when we started the studio.

If you are interested in the startup studio model let us know!

About Us

We are a *very* boutique startup studio. We work on a few projects at a time. We invest our own capital. We try focus on opportunities in the digital media and entertainment space but, truth be told, we are terrible at focusing.

 

Some other quick facts:

 

  • Founded in 2014

 

 

  • Decades of start-up experience in media, entertainment, and technology

 

 

  • Occasionally make small investments in other startups

 

  • Based in California and are regularly in Orange County, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area

 

We are always interested in talking with people or teams that would work with us.

Time and Money

We spend most of our time researching markets, designing, prototyping and playing with business models. We use old-school lo-fi concepting tools and do lots of homework. We start with instinct and refine with data. We always have a number of active stealthy projects, interesting products in development, and ongoing investment and advisory work.

 

We recently announced our first project to be spun out as a new company called Bound, a new storytelling platform built for mobile.

We’ve also made very early stage investments in a number of companies including:

Crowdfind

 

Lightstream - livestreaming

 

We also actively consult and advise a number of founders and actively mentor through The Founder Institute and other organizations.
