Venture building & validation

We validate and build ventures from scratch for ourselves, select investors and entrepreneurs.

We also offer discreet pieces of our venture validation and creation engine to investors or entrepreneurs wanting to validate existing opportunities.

The payoff

We dramatically improve the odds of investment success by rigorously validating commercial prospects, as well as their implementation mechanisms and teams, as early as possible in their development. 

Our work

We build new ventures based on market focused concept validation, and we set them for scale with funding, tech and talent.

We draw on this expertise to work with investors, financiers and entrepreneurs to maximize success in their own investment prospects and businesses.

Who we are

We are a team of experienced investors, conceptual creatives, entrepreneurs, corporate finance professionals and tech enthusiasts.

We access world class alliances in funding, deep tech and talent acquisition to deploy resources and carefully selected growth teams into validated ventures.

Why we do it

Half of all emergent businesses fail because of poor market fit (validation), and 4 out of 5 founders are eventually forced to step aside for growth (wrong skill set).

By validating ventures at the earliest opportunity, investors and founders are able to jointly set a value maximizing roadmap for scale.


We are based in Cape Town, working both regionally and internationally.
