CHICAGO, Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Aberdeen Advisors LLC (“Aberdeen Advisors”) today announces the launch of its venture arm Aberdeen Labs LLC (“Aberdeen Labs”), a value-add technology investment platform whose mission is to bring innovation to market. Aberdeen Labs creates long-term partnerships to build and grow high potential start-ups.
By leveraging technology, advisory services, and/or capital as a form of investment, Aberdeen Labs offers several models to startups. As an operating partner, Aberdeen Labs takes a small equity stake in the startup in exchange for technology and operational services. As an advisor, Aberdeen Labs issues options for business and technology guidance to startups which can be redeemed in exchange for advisory shares. As a capital investor, Aberdeen Labs takes an equity stake in portfolio companies that need a capital infusion to scale. “By exchanging advisory and operational services for equity in these companies, we align the incentives of both parties to work towards a common goal,” says co-founder Kavir Naik.
The team at Aberdeen Labs has spent decades working with larger organizations, and applies their learnings to help founders make decisions that will enable future growth. “Operational and technology decisions can have critical implications to enabling (or limiting) a small company’s growth. We bring years of experience working with a variety of companies, ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 enterprises, helping them navigate tradeoffs to ensure their model is scalable,” says co-founder David Wise.
