What is a venture studio?

Studios include a strong ideation and definition function which can create new ideas, or rapidly refine the ideas of new prospects.

Studios apply a repeatable but customizable process directly or partner with outside incubators to help refine ideas into fundable startups.

Studios have an attached fund to add capital and talent to the process and may have partnerships with multiple funding and service providers.

Studios have an enduring relationship with a corporation or entrepreneur, partnering with them to take an idea all the way to a growth company.

More about our Process

Venture partners, inside and out.

Benefits Corporation

As a pending certified B Corporation, we use proceeds from our Corporate and Community Innovation Partner programs to reduce or eliminate fees for startup companies.

Corporate INTRApreneurs

We help corporations leverage their advantages to disrupt their own industry.

More and more corporations are separating the innovation teams from the main organizations, to shield them from bureaucracy, while protecting the main brand from startup risks.
