These are officially our fist words as a startup studio.
After decade of running various online businesses, we realized that we love to build businesses more than operating them. So far, we founded 6 startups in different industries and each time we enjoyed the challenge we faced. We build a viral content website with more than 200M monthly pageviews, an online store where we sold 50.000 pairs of socks(!) in 4 months, a mobile game that we killed right before we published on app stores, a Facebook ad automation platform that helped us spend $3M with high margin profits and two SaaS companies where we found our passion. Most of the time we were running them in parallel. Actually, we were a startup studio for a long time without realizing it.
According to Wikipedia there are two types of startup studios. We see ourselves as a builder studio, where we create products from scratch. Startup studio itself is a product as well. It’s goal is to repeatedly turn ideas to startups with a shared know-how, vision and team. Once the startup goes well, the studio recruits a team to hand over the product and move to new ideas.
Even though we do this for a long time, it will be a new journey for us. A challenge to create foundation of shared knowledge, methods, vision and team to create successful startups.
