Churn Labs focuses on building and iterating on new Internet and Mobile products and bringing the best to market. There are plenty of places where existing startups can get help, funding, and mentorship. Churn is not one of them. It does not want to just politely assist; it wants to do. Rather than find companies to help, Churn Labs finds entrepreneurial people: engineers, designers and product specialists and we brainstorm, prototype, and build companies together.
It’s often said that the best part of building a company is the beginning. Things are still small, teams are close and committed, and the only thing that matters is building a great product. The plan is for Churn to always be at the beginning. It builds things in cycles. In each cycle many things are prototyped, a few are launched, and if lucky, one is spun out into a self operating company. Then the cycle begins again.
Churn has offices in the San Francisco Bay Area and Irvine.

Gnonstop Gnomes is part social game, part mobile photo app. You take pictures with your iPhone or Android camera and insert an image of a gnome into the picture. The app marks the location of each picture and you can follow where the gnome has been.
â€œWouldnâ€™t it be cool to have a gnome in your pocket,â€ asks engineer Haider Sabri, â€œall the while you are getting updates on who your gnome is, where he is and what he is doing?
