Q Lab

Q Lab is a members-only chat-based consulting support community for early-stage projects that are applying the “breaking smart” philosophy to a variety of domains being eaten by software. Q Lab offers a chat-based version of traditional consulting support,  alongside features borrowed from incubators, accelerators, universities, and coworking spaces. We are currently refining our playbook and service model with a pilot batch of 15 guinea pig projects.

Current Q Lab projects range from healthcare and smart contracts startups, to government support and entrepreneurship programs in the developing world. The lab is currently in stealth mode, supporting a dozen-odd projects in its pilot cohort. Subscribe to the Breaking Smart newsletter for updates. We are currently full, but expect to have more spots available in July 2017.

We occasionally host invited speakers for virtual office hours and talks. Contact Venkatesh Rao if you’re interested in talking to Q Lab members.
