We are an entrepreneurial lab for
Growing New Ventures

About Us

432 Ventures is an entrepreneurial lab and holding company for launching, building, and growing new companies. We identify promising concepts, analyze the opportunity, assemble a skilled, relevant team, and build and deploy new products and services. David Burnett created 432 Ventures as an entrepreneurial lab in January, 2011. Since then several companies have been publicly launched, and additional new concepts and side projects are being explored and developed. 432 Ventures currently operates in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.


Fundamentally, we are interested in growth opportunities. Although we generate ideas for many new products and services, we aim to pursue novel concepts in under-targeted markets that demonstrate strong promise, validated through successful customer feedback.


We identify, recruit, and build teams with complementary skills that are specific to each concept or project that we pursue. Several of our resources have held roles in more than one of our companies. If you believe you could be a fit for one of our companies, please let us know.


We take an agile and customer-driven approach to everything we do. We use scrum and kanban to drive our development process. We openly discuss and re-visit direction and priorities, we integrate user feedback, and we put a premium on continual progress.
