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. No need to have a project to apply! We are focusing on motivation and determination and, of course, entrepreneurial spirit.
The selected profiles join a cohort of approximately 10 entrepreneurs. They find their co-founder among the cohort, find an innovative project and create the beginnings of their future startup (business model, prototype, first customers).
The duos meet the investment committee. The committee will decide to finance the accelerated seed process: 100.000€ against 12% of the capital of the startup created.
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.

Reveal talents and create the greatest entrepreneurs of our time
Invest in seed capital and pay entrepreneurs from the beginning
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. As an essential initiation, our entrepreneurs are led to travel to Japan as part of their journey within LFA.
We select projects and entrepreneurs for their willingness to make the world a better place. This is why all our startups are ESG focused.
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 individually.
LFA Fund’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 3 criterias: digital, fast go to market and the scaling potential of the project.
Yes, our entrepreneurs are paid 1500€/month as a consulting fee. This is an advance payment on the future investment in the startup (if it happens). However, if you leave the programme before the end of the first three months or because the investment committee rejected the project, you will not be asked to reimburse your salary.
No, ideation workshops are planned during the first month to help you create a new idea or develop one you might have. We welcome people with no idea and great imagination!
