Moonshots, Spinouts, and New Ventures
The varied approaches to venture creation
Venture studios represent a relatively new form of entrepreneurship—one where founders pair up with industry experts, advisors, talent and back-office support rather than going it alone. Unlike accelerator or incubator programs, venture studios are there from the start of the company creation process, may pre-date founders and CEOs, and vary widely in how they are structured. Venture studios primarily differ in terms of ideation processes, how or when founders are brought in, availability of capital and their ownership stake.
Join Shaun Stewart (CEO, Newlab) for an intimate discussion where we explore the wide variety of approaches to the venture studio model, and how entrepreneurs can work with them to build and create new and impactful companies.
