Invoke Labs

Invoke Labs builds technology and digital media startups and partners with clients to bring innovative ideas to life.

Our mission is to run a self-funding company that selects, incubates, and launches great digital media companies with teams equipped for succes, and participate in the value we create and share in the company's success.

Invoke Labs was born out of Invoke, the award-winning digital innovation company and creators of Hootsuite, Foodee and Memelabs. We look for smart people with compelling ideas that have a lot of potential. Combined with our culture and experience, we think we can help build amazing businesses.
