OUR UNIQUE VALUES

Troy Labs is an end-to-end platform,
focused on supporting SC companies.

Fuel the community.

Through events like USC Demo Day, we provide a forum for incredible startups from the Trojan Family to share their contributions and inspire their peers.

Drive growth.

Build. Scale. Invest. When it comes to helping startups scale beyond the college environment, this is our motto. Our startup accelerator and startup consulting initiatives fill a long needed void in the trojan ecosystem.

Invest capital.

To support student & alumni founders, we built USC’s first student-run venture fund so founders can spend less time fundraising and more time building.

INTERNAL CULTURE

Before ideas and before products, founders are the problem-solving seeds of a business.

USER TESTING

The colliding and mixing of ideas and discussion provides a platform for external testing and validated learning.

TEAM STRUCTURE

As the research begins to solidify a product roadmap, further development requires a more mature team.

IDEATION

Teams of any stage must formulate clear hypothesis and KPIs in order to constructively build, test, iterate, and learn.

LEGALITIES

A startup will eventually will require guidance on incorporation, equity, IP, employment, liability, etc.

FUNDRAISING

As a startup begins to scale and grow, it may often benefit them long term to raise funds from external investors.

FINANCE

Knowing how to raise capital is useless without understanding proper financials and effective deployment of their funds.

WHERE WE FIT IN

Our platform is designed for specific stages
in the life cycle of an early startup.

Stay in the loop.

Never miss out on an opportunity to be involved in the entrepreneurial community at USC! Don't worry, we will never send you spam.
