About The FirstPrinciples Venture Studio

We take companies from 0 to 1 and solve problems we find in the marketplace and partner with domain experts.

We significantly derisk starting a company by speeding up the time-to-market while significantly lowering the capital required to do so. We have the systems & processes to build a product and validate an idea fast, the marketing and sales playbooks to win customers, and an experienced team of product, engineering, and growth professionals who can execute.

If an idea has legs, our team has the operational expertise, network, and fundraising experience to spin the company out on its own independent venture.

Focus Areas

Our operational expertise lies in building B2B SaaS Companies, and that those are the types of companies we primarily focus on building. In instances where we find a strong partner, we build companies outside of the B2B SaaS Space.

How it Works?

Explore

We typically commit between $50,000 and $100,000 to each idea. Ideas generated within the FirstPrinciples are funded fully by the Venture Studio and ideas in partnership with domain experts and partners are funded based on the equity split of that specific project.
We set stages with specific benchmarks and metrics for each stage and pre-commit to making an investment upon the project hitting the benchmark.
Each idea starts with a market validation test that uses landing pages, visual prototypes, customer interviews, and other techniques to understand the market and also prioritize features.
After the validation test, we iteratively build and launch a product, and in most cases, have a revenue goal to hit before moving the project to the next iterative stage.
