ExploLab Ventures

Distressed Venture Capital for corporates, VCs, family offices and startups

The fast-paced world of digital digital startups is full of opportunities, but timing is paramount and you need to manage your ressources carefully in order to be able to surf the wave. And sometimes you’ve built something worthy that customers like and you’re starting to gain traction, but there’s no more cash and you can’t raise more capital.

Investors often pudically refer to these situations as “operational or financial challenges” or “special situations”. Provided requirements concerning addressable market, team, product and customers are met, ExploLab Ventures can help, by refinancing and restructuring the venture in the best interest of investors and founders.

For VCs, family offices and startups

ExploLab Ventures takes a majority stake in cash-dried startups, restructurates them and gives them a second life.

For corporates

ExploLab Ventures intervenes in carve out operations of digital assets and/or digital BUs/subsidiaries.

We can also buy a target on behalf of your company, restructure it, derisk ops and pass it back to you.

Our hands-on approach is based on a pragmatic strategy reset, coupled with offensive yet realistic sales hypothesis, lowered acquisition costs, restructuration and frugal cost management.
