Redstar is a company that creates companies. We are not an incubator, nor a venture capital firm. We do not fund external business plans. Our approach is a "top-down" way of building companies.
We identify significant trends and growing markets, and develop potential products and services for those markets. We match very successful mentors with young and experienced entrepreneurs and co-found companies with them. Together, we staff these teams, evaluate the market, build and test the product or service, establish partnerships, identify sources of investment, and launch the enterprise. We also fund these firms through their seed-stages.
We generate hundreds of ideas per year, and research dozens. We concentrate on a few major themes at a time.
We believe in increasing the chances of a entrepreneur's success by channeling their creativity and energy towards fields where fundability, growth, and exit potential are high.
