About this event

Startup studios are interchangeably known around the globe as venture studios, venture builders, or company builders. These venture builders are getting a lot of attention these days. If there were fewer than a handful ten years ago, today, there are more than 500.

Studios are incredibly effective in building early-stage startups. ​​These unique companies go beyond financial capital and the usual 3-month acceleration to provide founders with full support throughout the lifetime of the venture. So the founders can focus on scaling the business: design, engineering, finance, marketing, HR, IT, and recruiting.

Venture building studios will begin to outpace traditional venture returns as asset classes in the next 5 to 10 years. But the capital needed to get up to speed is high, and they should be noticed by investors who continue to invest in traditional VC funds.

So, why should investors start considering backing the startup studio model? Join this roundtable discussion to learn more about:

  • What is a venture-building studio? What are the different types of VB studios?
  • Why are studios an attractive investment?
  • What should investors look for in studios?
