The Startup Studio is a 6-month service to build startups from A to Z in response to sectoral issues and trends or market needs that have been pre-identified or that will be defined in collaboration with corporate partners.
How does it work?
First, we work with an A-team of industry leaders and entrepreneurs in residence or we recruit them in an ad hoc manner;
Then we add to the mix some shared infrastructure (the Rodier) and an in-house investment fund;
We then generate ideas with the resident entrepreneurs with a focus on issues facing the cultural and creative industries as determined by partners and different organizations in the cultural and creative sector);
We then proceed to build and consolidate multiple startups in parallel (whether they existed already, they were created ad hoc following a call for proposals, or following events in the style of a Design Jam or Hackathons), all with the support of shared resources (studio + entrepreneurs, experts and coaches).
If an idea doesn’t work, we re-assign the team to another idea;
What works can receive funding to accelerate the development, create a spin-off, or a sin-on (reintegration into a corporation);
We support the growth. Allow for emergence of value. We start over.
