Venture Studios are taking the startup world by storm.
It is recorded that since 2013, this new business model for creating startups is becoming increasingly popular across the world.
In a span of about 7 years, Enhance Ventures reported in 2020 that there are roughly 560 such studios across the globe, representing more than 625% growth in the studio market,.building numerous unicorns globally like Hims, Snowflake, and MongoDB.
It is clear that venture studios are undoubtedly disrupting the startup world, and many people credit the success of venture studios to several unique attributes of this model, e.g. they provide companies with experienced entrepreneurs and investors, a creative environment, corporate partnerships, and large investors looking to build companies.
But what exactly are venture studios? Venture Studios are a new way to create companies by working on a project from as early as the problem-identification stage to launch, and this greater involvement allows the venture studio to retain more equity and returns.
Unlike traditional entrepreneurship where one team works on a single idea, venture studios defy the odds by bringing together talented entrepreneurs, investors, designers, and engineers to repeatedly create successful startups at scale.
Understanding venture studios and their growing role is essential for anyone operating in the startup ecosystem. Whether you’re looking to start, work with, or invest in a venture studio, or simply looking to familiarize yourself with the model,
