We select the best profiles and support them throughout the development of their project
We select entrepreneurs able to imagine and to develop successful products and services. We are focusing on motivation and determination and, of course, entrepreneurial spirit.
Selected profiles join a cohort of around 10 entrepreneurs with their co-founder. They create the beginnings of their future startup (business model, prototype, first customers) and benefit from synergies with other entrepreneurs.
The duos meet the investment committee. The committee will decide to finance the accelerated seed proces up to 100.000€.
The startup studio facilitates, strategically advises with the support of selected mentors, and monitors the progress of the startups to accompany them to the Seed phase in less than 12 months.
We recruit the best entrepreneurs and help them at the very beginning of their startup's life.

Ensure strict application of the LFA Process to accelerate value creation and increase the probability of exit
With our model, we want to bypass the major obstacles to the creation of a startup for a large majority of young entrepreneurs: the high risk of failure and the investment at the outset.
We believe that the world needs new talents and ideas to transform itself. That's why we created LFA, the startup studio that is revolutionising entrepreneurship and bootstrapping.
LFA has been hugely financed by a Japanese family office, hence LFA shares strong values coming straight from the land of the rising sun.
We select projects and entrepreneurs for their willingness to make the world a better place.
A startup studio creates startups, infusing time, effort, and cash in exchange for startup equity.
Yes you can! What you should know is that each cofounder will have to go through the entire recruitment process.
LFA’s investors are all members of the investment committee. They are independent from LFA and will give their decision for each investment in a startup project at the end of the 3 month-fast-track of the program. Their decision is made on 4 criteria: impact, digital, fast go to market and the scaling potential of the project.
No, entrepreneurs do not receive any direct or indirect remuneration until the SEED fundraising is completed, except in very special cases which must be justified on the basis of the specific conditions of the selected entrepreneur.
Yes, this is one of the prerequisites for joining the LFA program.
The upcoming cohort program will start in Paris at 40 rue du Colisée, starting on March 25, 2024 on a full-time basis.
