Hatching Your BIG Idea: Venture Studios and Startup Success
May 6, 2020
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Even incubators/accelerators [in India] that have been around for years, and have “processed” 50+ startups, usually don't have even one startup that has achieved impressive revenues/valuations” (Source). 90% of startups fail. Doomed from the start? Likely if they work with accelerators, which invest low seed capital in multiple startups for 12-week mentoring, expecting most to flop when Demo Day investors say No. If you’re a wannabe entrepreneur or a serial entrepreneur with your eye on the next big prize, here’s another path. Venture studios dawned in the late 00’s when successful-exit tech entrepreneurs assembled experts and investors to create their own ventures or boost the commercialization of post-incubator, post-accelerator, post-corporate innovation labs. We’ll ask Don Deloach at Rocket Wagon Venture Studios, Chris Morgan at Lantern Partners, and Chris Rezendes at Spherical | Analytics for their take on Hatching Your BIG Idea: Venture Studios and Startup Success.
