OAK'S LAB Culture Manifesto

Jake & Theo

Our world is rapidly evolving. Never have we been more globally connected and technologically empowered, nor afforded such boundless opportunity. As governments and institutions fail to keep up, entrepreneurs are pioneering a better future through innovation. Our society has entered a new age–the age of entrepreneurship.

We aim to support the world’s brightest innovations. We pursue meaningful ideas that will positively shape our future. We seek to nurture a diverse environment where our team springs groundbreaking global innovation, loves what they do, and enjoys each other’s company. We bring people together to drive change.

Mission

We empower innovators to improve life and the world.

We see the world as a canvas to which everyone can contribute. This presents an opportunity for those who aim to improve the way we live. We don’t just build startups. We empower fearless founders–the ones who come to us with inspiring visions–and we maximize their potential. We want to improve life and the world, which means leaving a better world behind us, and we partner with those who are committed to the same.

The following points outline our vision and drive our company strategy:

Our core values

  • Raise the bar

    Through the actions we perform and the output we produce, we continuously strive to raise the bar for ourselves and everyone around us. We push boundaries and create the best possible output we can within the constraints of each situation. Everything we produce internally and externally has the OAK’S LAB stamp of quality.

  • Own your outcomes

    We take initiative. Not only do we own the work we produce, but we also proactively solve problems. We are accountable for everything we do, and we have a bias for action. We embrace change and are willing to take risks in order to have the highest positive impact on our surroundings.

  • Just be honest

    We are always honest with ourselves, our partners, our customers, and each other. We are not afraid to deliver the uncomfortable truth. We know the sooner it is out in the open, the sooner we can solve it. We’ve created a safe space to be open and direct, and we proactively give each other feedback because we know it will help us grow.

  • We are kind and compassionate

    We care about the well-being of others and support each other both in our professional and personal lives. We support a diverse and inclusive environment. When a new member joins our team, we go out of our way to welcome them into our circle. We are friendly, kind, and nice people to be around, and we treat everyone with respect.

  • Don’t forget to enjoy the ride

    Working with startups is unpredictable. One day we are on top of the world; the next day the world is falling apart. All the highs and lows are part of the journey and are exactly what makes the road so special. We double down to overcome the obstacles in our way, and when we crush it, we celebrate. Seeing our startups flourish is why we love what we do.
