The studioBuild with us
We recruit talented individuals with direct, lived experiences in our focus areas and we work alongside them for 18 months in an intense research, behavioral design, prototype, sell, deployment, and fundraising process. At the end of 18 months, we expect each of our entrepreneurs to have a product in-market making a difference in the world, with capital to continue to grow far beyond the Venture Studio.
What we provide
Starting a business is risky, and for many individuals without a personal financial safety net, or access to a network of individuals with significant capital to fund their venture, the risk is simply too high. At the ideas42 Venture Studio we can’t guarantee your success, but we can reduce the risk by providing you with the support you and your business need to grow.
