We work with skilled and innovative entrepreneurs to bring transformative ideas to life and build business systems that set up the businesses for growth and scale. We engage at all stages of the project lifecycle from brainstorming ideas, developing the concept, building a minimum viable product, establishing product market fit, scaling the business and ultimately selling the business. With a combination of the right tools, resources and minds, we help you build the foundation that will sustain your business even as it evolves for years to come.
What We Offer
We pull together the right team, resources and insights to develop great ideas into successful companies.
The application form is the first step towards engaging us about a potential venture partnership. It is designed to get an insight into your background, the problem you're trying to solve and your suitability to become a co-founder. You should hear back from us within two weeks. In some cases we may ask you to have a short phone call with us after reviewing your application.
Successful applicants are invited to our office, where they meet a member of our team. This meeting serves as an introductory session where you get to learn more about the company as we learn more about you and what drives you. If we feel confident about working with you, we confirm to you within two weeks of this meeting and send some documents for you to sign, as well as useful information on the next steps.
At this phase, we focus on building the product and the team. Some people join us with a clear sense of what they want to build; others join us to explore teams they could join. Thus from our carefully selected pool of other extraordinary individuals, we can help you find someone as talented, ambitious and committed as you to be part of your founding team. We provide support in concept development, product development and refining the business model. We also facilitate you in building an MVP and testing it in the market. This phase typically takes three to six months.
At the start of launch, we make the first investment in the company to facilitate the go to market strategy. The investment amount differs from company to company as we evaluate to make sure we provide enough funding to accelerate growth efforts. We structure a venture model that is mutually beneficial to the founding team and our company. Our venture model is comprised of equity, fees or both equity and fees. Each venture is allocated a dedicated venture partner to provide strategic advice and push the new venture to greater heights.
We will continue being our ventures' life-long advisor and partner long after bringing the product to market. The founding teams become part of our exclusive progressive community of innovators and changemakers. The ventures continue to enjoy the full benefits of our resources, networks and experiences that we continue to build and offer.
