Lifeboat Ventures is launching a Venture/Startup Studio to create disaster impact mitigation startups. Startups that reduce the impact of continuous disasters such as storms, floods, fire and pandemics, can have compelling demand in society. The objective is to validate software-enabled ideas using our expertise, recruit knowledgeable entrepreneurs and take them from idea to exit. We provide consistent, countercyclical returns by using the Startup Studio model and reducing risk in every step of the Startup process.
