What is Structure Lab?

Structure Lab is a day-long experience in which participants explore how corporate structures and hybrid forms can enable or hinder their efforts. Grounded in a framework that legal structures exist to manage relationships, the system of Structure Lab enables you to navigate new forms - from PRIs to L3Cs - and to sort through dozens of other forms that have been around for decades or centuries. Participants leave with new tools and perspectives with which they can make better choices about financing, governance, growth, market interaction and exits.

Structure Lab will be led by Jackie Vanderbrug, Managing Director of Criterion Ventures. Structure Lab was created with the generous support of the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. Through the development of tools such as the Structure Lab system, Criterion Ventures seeks to build a stronger social change sector where all involved are better able to identify new possibilities.
