The Fabric Innovation Lab – Creative Studio for Entrepreneurs

Since our inception, The Fabric, a startup foundry which deeply collaborates with entrepreneurs to co-create cloud infrastructure startups, established an Innovation Lab to turbocharge the technology development efforts of its co-created company. The Fabric Innovation Lab, based out of Chennai, India has worked with all of its portfolio companies from their inception.
Entrepreneurs and founders today have innumerable challenges while innovating. Ranging from investors asking for more quantified proof points to handling millennial engineers who have wide variety of options to work. Tie to this the ever-changing landscape of Software and Services; boom – you hit the a-ha moment that innovating is not the same anymore.

The Fabric Innovation Team knows the disruptive and evolutionary nature of products made by leading edge startups. The team has had deep experience in developing technologies with over 10 startups– we understand what it takes to do a product ground up! There is no time lost in trying to explain why you are doing what you are doing. The team is already plugged into the leading edge.

The Landscape

Innovation is not only about deep thinking or lateral thinking or ideas – it’s also about breadth of available technologies, the services that come out on short times and providing differentiation – speed, agility, continuous improvement. Successful development of product in any startup depends on clarity of what problem is being solved, the right infrastructure and a savvy team.

What’s special about The Fabric Innovation Lab?

Not just development, not just testing, not just continuous integration(CI) / continuous deployment(CD). It’s great innovation and engineering excellence. Predicting what all can change and being resilient with less impact on timelines.

How does this work?
