WHO WE ARE
Flashpoint creates better startups, faster. We welcome committed founders with domain knowledge and a passion for responding to the needs of their customers, and help them shape startups with true market/product fit, reduced risks, lower costs, and a better chance of high quality success. Flashpoint is not an incubator or accelerator; it is a rigorous management and education program that works closely with founders to create companies.
Flashpoint is unique in implementing startup engineering, a business creation and innovation process developed by Dr. Merrick Furst at Georgia Tech. Learn more about startup engineering here.
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We need founders to be full-time committed to their startups and to have strong working relationships. The startup engineering work requires teams to have significant domain knowledge and to have relevant technical expertise ready to hand. We look for people who are demonstrably motivated to create scalable important businesses.
We like all startups, but especially technology startups. Atlanta is a great place for e-commerce, internet security, materials, consumer health, medical devices, computing, robotics, financial transactions, and logistics. With our connections to Georgia Tech and the Atlanta corporate community, we look for teams we think we may strongly advantage by providing access to resources in our networks.
