Why Do We Co-Found Start-ups?
Larger founding teams have repeatedly shown to have better entrepreneurial performance than individuals do.
Entrepreneurs with a running start-up or a well-researched business idea with the potential to replicate and scale.
Entrepreneurs who wish to transform the world through innovation in any industry.
Entrepreneurs who acknowledge that through the support of a team, they can transform the world faster.
New Ventures Studio believes that it is unrealistic to expect an entrepreneur to possess all the qualities required to have a successful business (e.g. strategic thinking, knowledge in industry, marketing & sales, finances, operations, fundraising and more).
New Ventures Studio skilled team is hands-on; we work alongside the entrepreneur to build businesses. By providing expertise and resources, and assisting in the operation of the start-ups, we increase the entrepreneur’s chances of success, optimizing the environment for business creation and growth.
By co-founding the business, our commitment is to work with the entrepreneur for as long as it takes to make the venture successful.
