We help startups and corporations create successful win-win-partnerships to jointly innovate towards a shared future.
88ships is a growth and innovation advisory platform and white-glove startup builder. We help startup founders transition from product to customer-focused and accelerate their growth. We provide sophisticated strategic advice to management teams of later-stage companies who want to scale rapidly and explore inorganic growth. We help large corporations cultivate internal innovation, engage external startup disruption opportunities, and navigate the rapidly growing startup ecosystem.
For Seed-funded startups in the pre-Series A stage, we offer our Player-Coach program. This is our most comprehensive and hands-on solution where we work side-by-side with founders to strategically co-build and grow their businesses. We make sure that the business is positioned to strike that major corporate partnership and is fundamentally investable for not only the A round, but also well beyond.
For growth-oriented and well-funded companies from Series B through later stages, we offer a range of growth advisory services designed to address the strategic needs that are most important when companies begin to rapidly scale, hire, become profitable and turn into market leaders. We serve as an extension of your corporate and business development teams to realize new growth opportunities.
For large corporations hungry to take a proactive approach to designing their future and staking their claim as one of the leading companies of tomorrow, we offer several solutions to help increase corporate innovation (internal and external) and adapt to emerging disruption. We provide a platform for corporations and early-stage startups to innovate together.
