Venture Studios offers an initial capital amount and operational support for a new company. It also assists entrepreneurs in dealing with the uncertainties of setting up a company or business. Its purpose is to create as many successful enterprises from the ground up as possible. It is kind of like a co-founder and long-term partner who sticks with you through good and bad times.

In Nepal, Venture Studio is a comparatively recent but unique and revolutionary concept. Ambitious young business owners and entrepreneurs could well have come across this term and questioned what it implied. A venture studio, in brief, tries to establish multiple businesses in a short amount of time. It’s a unique approach to entrepreneurship that combines business formation and venture funding.

Nepal has seen a rise in entrepreneurship throughout the last decade. As a result, many VC firms and FDIs developed. Although, Venture Studio is still unknown and uncommon. Despite some attempts to follow this strategy, the Nepalese economy generally neglected it.

During the tour, the founders noticed that the scenario for urban firms in Nepal was challenging. So, the concept of a venture studio was born.
