About

Cocoon Labs comes out of our personal experience that good ideas need time and space to build up strong foundations. We try to find a few entrepreneurs who we can support not just with a small investment, but also with our operational expertise. Between the three of us, we can support entrepreneurs with their tech, marketing, design, fundraising, recruitment, remote team strategy and much more.

Apart from tech, we are interested in medicine, understanding and finding therapies for rare diseases. and have made a few investments in that domain.

Team

The three of us have been working together for more than 14 years. Our first project together was  MindCanvas, a game-like software for understanding customers.

In 2006, we launched SlideShare, grew it, raised venture funding, sold it to LinkedIn in 2012, returning X% returns to our investors.

We bring very different skills and experiences to the table. Jon is a software engineer, Amit has a engineering and marketing background, Rashmi has a science and human computer interaction background.

All through our years of working together, Amit has been based in India, while Jon and Rashmi are based in the US. We have built two companies with this setup and understand remote team structures well.
