The fund invests into qualifying UK early stage startups which are generated through a venture building model. Built Ventures has a core venture building partner – The Venture Studio, which takes its founders from an initial idea to discovering its market and building the business. The Venture Studio builds a dedicated team around startups which explores, validates & scales founders and their ideas. The team includes software and hardware engineers, marketing and finance specialists, designers, project managers, and others as needed.

What makes The Venture Studio stand out? Why are they Built Ventures core dealflow partner?

The Venture Studio is a venture builder which specialises in building from the ground up early stage, EIS & SEIS eligible technology businesses which have the potential for high growth.

What makes it unique is it’s systematic and risk mitigation approach to supporting founders and their startups. They do this through;

    • a tried and tested method in building and scaling companies
    • providing the founder with its first core team to work directly on the business

The Venture Studio’s allows for an eco-system where founders harness the expertise of a team who bring unparalleled knowledge and support to them as individuals and to their company.

The Venture Studio and Built Ventures share the same belief that venture building is the secret sauce to creating successful startups and just providing capital is not enough.
