software lab  + Atelier

the bridge to success

Limen Leap Labs is a software laboratory. We solve some wicked problems that affect many.

But we also have another over-arching aim: We are also an atelier.* It is a new kind of mentoring+investment system. We want to take IT startups in India on a path to success. Come, grow a successful startup with each of our intellectual properties.

Come, apply for our cohort

*What is an Atelier?

Why should this help startups?

Ateliers were first seen in Paris, France. A master craftsmen would invite young artists to join him, to work and also get mentored...  Hence the word "atelier" -- it means a "workshop" in French. The master would go about his work, and so will the wards (mentees) -- and each would work under their own names. With the master gently guiding them, all from within the same workspace -- usually a loft where everyone shares knowledge and resources.

Here, our founder is like this master crasftman guiding the others. To put it in other words: We are like both investors and mentors combined into one.

But unlike investors who invest money, we invest our own intellectual property in others. Unlike mentors who advise startups from the outside; our founder will actually hop on to the boat of each of the startups (for a few months) and mentor from inside.

We have serious interest in seeing each of the startup made using our IPR succeed!

Apply for our Cohort

What is a cohort? It means a group of motivated individuals with common goals. Before selecting the IPR, we invite you to apply to this cohort for a pre-contract training session conducted by our founder.

Practically, zero setup cost

Before youngsters take a solution from us for their startup, they have to attend one of our cohort workshops. We charge just a small cohort workshop fee*. Eating a simple breakfast at McDonalds for a month will cost more! 

Once qualified; the members of each startup will bear the running costs -- this will vary based on the solution that was picked up to form the startup. The costs would be as per actuals.

We want to attract serious and mature minds, with an unemotional, yet passionate, problem-solving attitude.

*The fee is waived on a case-to-case basis 

No hollow/vague advice

Our founder joins every startup for a few months using a B.O.T. (build-operate-transfer) mechanism. So the mentoring that startups would get here are not hollow or vague, but serious and profit driven.

To reduce confusion, there will not be much need to discuss the technology itself as our solutions are all working (However, we are indeed open to tackling serious exceptions and caveats)

Since we have extensive research that went behind each of our IPR, the chance of wrong arguments coming in are less.

We take royalty+equity, as per mutual discussion

Encourages creativity

Each startup has all the creative freedom to criticize and pivot the solution that is being worked on. Initially, the group would not have a tech co-founder (as our founder would play that role)

Towards the ending of the B.O.T period, the startup would bring in a suitable senior tech person.

Loose tech talk and digressions are avoided. And the startup continues being creative

Opportunity to grow

Each and every startup with us has a very high chance of success. We have studied carefully what would work best for us Indians; and what won't.

We are ourselves backed by some of the finest and influential advisors from around the world. So every person in our startups would get well recognized all over. If you put in your sincere efforts, positive results are inevitable! 

Even respectable failures would have very high value! But let us not talk failures here!

Our solutions

We solve some really important problems. These are fully working SaaS or software projects. They will continue to attract users, as our process of encouraging startups continue in the background!

Our unique P2P solution allows peer groups to preserve their anonymity and individuality while generating rich content; with very little personality conflicts.

It allows people to group among themselves too.

Visit.School
A lot of software for learning on the Internet comprises of boring pull-down menus, form-filling and staring at one video for hours together. It does not cater to a memorable learning experience.
 
We disrupt that with an innovative 2D space where both the gurus and students become avatar; in a game-like enviroment.  They can move in and out of classrooms, and learn as per their needs.

B2B, Remote work

TeamTwine.com
Now all businesses can work on a remote floor (or a set of floors!) on the Internet. A 2D game-like space to help everyone to be contextually aware of each other in an office, and work!

We took a deep look at the way remote working and chatting happens, and we realized that core-architectural concepts can improve remote working a lot.

B2C/B2B, Daily work

Pinsites.in ... coming soon!

 A new kind of webhosting platform which does NOT require ANY recurring server costs. Simply because, there is NO server into which the web-files are placed. All files are hosted on the excellent P2P IPFS cloud.

At the same time, our system neatly separates the look of the site from the contents -- so it acts like a simple CMS (Content Management System) Moreover; multiple people can contribute to the contents too using a P2P system.

B2B, Remote work

Homing.Space
An elegant solution to a problem for distributed systems. In a hub-and-spokes model, storing credentials of joining the website is simple because the hub would store them.

But in case of a distributed system, there is no central ownership of credentials. Then what happens? Homing.Space allows people to self-authenticate themselves which is trustable.

Apply for our Cohort

A cohort is a group of motivated individuals with a common purpose: Of creating a world class startup. Our first startup cohort workshop starts on Jan 2, 2022. It will introduce our IPRs and train each cohort before they zero-in on the type/nature of startup they want to create.

Why is our system of mentoring much better than conventional ones?
Simple: We have lived, breathed and researched the wicked problem that bothered us, before arriving at the solution. So we mentor with full conviction and committment. Conventionally, a mentor really does not have that deep conviction in some outside startup's problem statement that is being solved.
