General Inception is something new
The Igniter Company
Igniters spark and nurture innovation by helping with all facets of company creation, scale up, and growth. As a company that builds companies, Igniters are co-founding partners, bringing vertical integration, economies of scale, and operating leverage to the earliest stages of business building as well as access to a network of member venture firms. In addition, Igniters build the core executive team to ensure strategic company building with a focus on market applications and dedicated resources to accelerate product development. Instead of an external player, Igniters become integral members of the founding team, partnering with founders from inception.
How we solve the problem
We Provide the Fuel
General Inception was started to solve a fundamental problem — how to nurture game-changing scientific innovations with unknown paths to market entry and opportunity. To transform markets, there must be an ability and desire to journey into the relative unknown.
General Inception partners with scientific founders — often first time founders — to ignite their innovation and support their journey to bring those innovations to market. We are experienced, sage co-founders who remove the chaos and confusion during the initial stages of company formation. We help place the foundational building blocks for a stable, scalable enterprise. We bring access to top-tier talent who know the industry and have built companies before, secure partners to build prototypes, as well as regulatory, legal, marketing, and human resource experts to ensure strategic growth, and a capital base to help scale the business and secure future capital needs.
General Inception is your partner to ignite and nurture your vision.
