According to Enhance Ventures, there are around 560 studios operating across the globe, contributing to 625% growth in the category since 2013.
Startups created by studios have a 53% internal rate of return (IRR) on average. Compared that to the average for non-studio startups, which sits at 21%.
Startups by venture studios scale faster and provide better returns to investors. From creation to seed round in an average of 10.6 Months — less than a third of the time it takes for non-studio startups to raise a seed round.
According to the Global Startup Studio Network (GSSN)’s 2020 Disrupting the Venture Landscape report, startups that launch from studios see 30% higher company success rates.
Almost every company launched from a startup studio raises a seed round, and 72% of those that raise a seed round go on to raise Series A financing. Studios accelerate the speed to funding for startups.
Better ecosystem support, better access to initial founding or seed capital, readily accessible expertise & operational teams, better access to much larger network of founders, innovators, tech & business experts, investors & markets.
Successful Startups are a team sport, yet most entrepreneurs have to deal with the challenges of starting up alone. Constrained resources, skill & tech limitations, minimal access to the best of marketing reach & visibility and lack of a promising narrative that can help attract the right set of co-founders, key talent or paying customers, and a limited runway, are only some of the most common challenges that every early-stage startup needs to overcome. Even when the startup seems to have achieved the initial product-market fit, putting it on a path of hyper-scalability and profitability is a very different game. All this gets further complicated when the startup founders neither get the suitable mentoring and nor the investors to fund their startup, leading to more startup failures than successes.
The picture for the investors is not rosy either. While the large global investors, PE firms & seasoned venture capitalists usually have an enormous appetite for risk and better exposure in certain aspects, the challenges for family offices and early-stage investors are different. It requires a very different set of insights(not just instincts) to spot a promising startup at its early stages and then set it up for a more significant success to achieve a high return on investment.
We have been on both sides. Being entrepreneurs ourselves, we have lived the journey and not just read about someone else’s - The journey of starting up from scratch and turning our business into a high-growth, profitable multi-million dollar enterprise that it is today. On the way, we also met many investors, learned from their perspectives, and successfully raised funds for our startup.
Inspired by the thought of backing world-class entrepreneurs looking to create a wide-scale positive impact and helping family offices & early-stage investors identify the right set of startups to invest in, we have created Kuber Ventures.
Kuber Ventures is a venture-building studio where we create ventures 5x faster and 5x more successful, giving a high return on investment.
We prefer being the first investor that an entrepreneur brings on board at the seed stage of a company and help build the venture ground up, working together in the trenches.
Great founders build successful companies & the team quality being the greatest tangible asset of any early-stage startup; we bet our time, efforts & resources on the highly focused, committed, adaptable, resilient, honest, and coachable founders.
We are very fast in making decisions to accept any startup into our venture studio, and therefore you won’t have to wait for long to get our verdict. Having worked in various global markets with a varied set of customers & cultures, we recognise that one-size doesn’t fit all. Therefore, every startup must get its narrative right, ideally from Day 1. Also, the markets shift, consumer behaviour changes & pandemics occur. Hence, one of our most considerable values is helping entrepreneurs think through the pivotal decisions as they build their startups, and staying by their side even when the times get tough.
We work with proven success templates, business models and available market needs. We create a venture very fast from idea to working prototype and a complete working business plan. Our experts provide shared support for almost everything needed by a new venture.
We support with most of the initial technology needs of the startups by ensuring zero wastage and help them creating a strong technology support ecosystem. We also get the right founders, co-founders, dedicated talent and shared workforce to help in faster success of the startups.
We use our proven marketing strength, network of clients, partners and a sales ecosystem to give a quick start and revenue; plus a brand that customers can easily recall.
We ensure that the startup is made attractive enough with right legal structures, capital structure, founders, customers, partners and revenue. Our experts then help position the opportunity with several investors globally for raising seed or Pre-A round funding.
