We are not an agency. We are partners. We are not doers. We think, do, and connect dots with impact in mind.
We are not yes-men. We challenge and take risks in healthy ways to achieve the best outcomes.
Electric8 works with you to achieve product-market fit. Whether you're looking to nail traction, test a new idea in market, or have specific goals to unlock your next round of funding, our product and growth teams work with you to get there.
Trusted by 50+ companies worldwide. Many have raised millions in funding after working with us.
Whether defining a problem, validating a solution, or going to market, our versatile team of experts can help.
Define a problem and white space worth solving with a solution defined.
Validate a solution in market that can be built, will be used, and can scale.
Go-to-market with a product proven to attract, convert, and retain users.
Not consultants. We've built, scaled and sold companies before. We're entrepreneurs like you who can zoom in and out to be the extra pair of hands (and minds) you need to take your business forward.
Hiring great, cross-functional teams take anywhere from 6-12 months. Our team is ready to go. And can help you hire your own A-star team.
We do validation work exceptionally well. We help teams design minimum viable tests using no/low-code ways to quickly learn how users will use and pay for your product.
We're here to bring you maximum impact by setting you up for long-term success through ways of working, tooling and a sustainable data setup. We can also help hire or mentor our full-time successors.
A team is typically 3 to 4 people depending on the situation. It can sometimes be more depending on your needs.
An example of a team working on a "Validate" project could be a UX Researcher, a Product Manager, a Designer working full-time with you - supported by another E8 senior team member on a part-time basis.
We can bring engineers as part of our team through close partnerships with development houses we've worked closely with in the past. We have access to all kinds of engineers (front-end, back-end, systems administrators, architects, quality assurance engineers, native app developers etc.). We can also manage them and their contracts if needed so you don't have to "deal with" multiple parties.
We typically work in two ways on the services side: 1) on a project-basis with a clear set of outcomes and timelines; 2) or on monthly retainers tied to longer term outcomes.
For longer term projects, we also work in "skin in the game" arrangements where we defer a percentage of our costs on a monthly basis until we achieve a milestone at a later date. Examples of milestones could be: the next round of fundraising, a KPI or another outcome we mutually agree to.
If we don't achieve the milestone, we don't get any of the deferred amounts. If we achieve the milestone, we have typically received a multiple of the deferred amount in cash, equity or both.
We like these projects as they align our incentives with yours. We win when you do.
It's hard to give an exact price without knowing what you need. We also have "skin-in-the-game" pricing arrangements which we like over regular billable hours as it motivates us to win together with you. The best thing would be to contact us below and we can quickly give you a high level estimate.
Friendly note: if you are looking for the cheapest solution, or an agency, we're may not be the right match for you. Our teams are highly skilled and experienced startup founders and operators. We roll up our sleeves and do all we can to get teams to where they need to go.
