About

Design+Data

Expa is a startup studio that works with founders to develop and launch new products. After 10 years of designing and building consumer services, the Expa team has identified many techniques that help create successful companies. This experience has been integrated into a platform that will increase a startup's chance of success.

Expa Capital is the investment arm of the studio, that seed funds each Expa company. Expa Capital will typically invest between $500K–$1M of seed capital, with the Expa team spending significant time on every project. Rather than providing services for companies after they have achieved traction, Expa will actively guide founders from inception towards product-market fit.
