I would take 19 days to define it.

We fund promising companies and find incredible founders

Our studio works in quarterly cycles to move from problem definition to MVP product launch every 180 days. With our inaugural $10MM fund, we will launch 6+ ventures.

Typical startups

Depend on finding funding and building a team around a founder with a solution. Even great ideas often don’t make it out of this precarious situation.

Our venture studio approach

Focuses on finding and validating a problem and market opportunity, then launching a company with proper funding from the get go. While building, we attract top-level founders and surround them with the entire team needed to grow startups into big successes.

How we do it

Rapidly move from clear opportunity to first customers

An orange number 1

Discover problems worth solving in a targeted vertical

We find the biggest problems and opportunities by way of an immersive human centered discovery process.

An orange number 2

Begin with an entire innovation team

Instead of building a team from scratch each time, we start with the full team of experts needed to discover, build, launch, and grow.

An orange number 3

Build and validate rapidly

With the complete in-house team, quickly building and validating is possible and reduces cost of a startup and de-risks ideas.

An orange number 4

Attract talented co-founders

19days gets the train moving, and then we attract co-founders who are ideally suited to take the company to the next level.

An orange number 5

Founders take ownership of a funded company

Instead of spending time looking for capital, founders work on securing new customers by building things they need.

We’re always looking for our next co-founder

Who we're working with

Alex Zubey, CEO of Arriv

Arriv

Intelligent online check-in for urgent care

INDUSTRY:
Health Care
STATUS:
Launched

We created Arriv in 2020, when we found that the online check-in experience is where most conversions are lost in the customer acquisition process for urgent cares and hospitals. Due to complex forms, bulky processes, and unintuitive design, people were unwilling and unable to find and confirm treatment at a care facility. Within 90 days, we designed and built a new online check-in tool and launched the beta version with a leading urgent care network. After 1 month with Arriv, the group had increased online conversion by 80% over their existing check-in tool.
