The biggest difference between Pixel Recess and a traditional agency or studio, is that we are more focused delivering actual outcomes than on tracking our time, or itemizing lists and checking off tasks. We are a collaborator, working side by side with founders and teams to focus their stories, refine their brands, and improve their products, to make them more enticing to customers and valuable to investors.
We also understand that early stage startups are in desperate need of cash to stay alive. We aren’t interested in trying to squeeze billings from you in order to feed ourselves (I mean, we are humans, we also need to food)
, so we want to work with you
on how we can best provide help without impacting your ability to survive. That is why we try to negotiate better engagements through a SAFE (Simple Agreement for Future Equity)
“Why would I want to give up equity to you, and not another incubator or startup accelerator?” The truth is, maybe you should. Accelerator programs provide structure, resources, and often some decent cash, but they also dictate and limit help based on their schedule, often don’t provide experienced mentors, and operate at a scale that can’t provide personalized attention that can significantly propel your business. While we don’t offer cash (at the moment), we have the experience, expertise, and guidance nearly impossible to find in even the largest accelerator programs, we also do all of this without an expiration date.
