About Flashpoint

Flashpoint works closely with founders in a startup studio where they utilize the deliberate innovation process to develop exceptional opportunities

Georgia Tech recognized Dr. Merrick Furst’s development of these methods with the university’s highest award for Outstanding Achievement in Research Innovation.

Operating since 2011, Flashpoint is among the most experienced startup studios in the world. It is unique in its approach. Flashpoint startups have raised over $300 million from top tier venture firms. The companies in Flashpoint’s portfolio are valued at well over $1.4 billion.

You can learn more about the Deliberate Innovation process in this keynote, details about Flashpoint's work with startups are in a Forbes interview with Dr. Merrick Furst, and in an excerpt from the recently released Harvard Business Review Press book, An Everyone Culture, Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organization (Kegan and Lahey).

Flashpoint requires accepted startups to be or convert to US C- Corporations. Invited startups receive a $20,000 investment as a SAFE, from an independent fund (created, in part, by successful companies developed at Flashpoint.) In addition, Flashpoint purchases 7% of company stock.
