Labtoo is a French startup founded by Guillaume Leboucher and Sophie Hue.
It is the European marketplace for R&D.
Labtoo was created after two observations made from the world of Research. First, the necessary expertise to carry out a research project has significantly increased and it can be a challenge to identify Experts who have the right competencies. Second, funding allocated to research is long and difficult to obtain. It is necessary to diversify sources of income and the visibility of researchers expertise within the Research community.
Labtoo's goal is to accelerate research by creating a smart plateform gathering the best scientific experts. A platform on which you can order experimental or consulting services in a few clicks.
