I’m always on the lookout for startup studio / foundry models and what people have learned.
The Stanley Park Ventures team here share how they work and some high level details from other studios.
I think the model is closely tied to the outcomes needed. Creating companies to go down a venture path, with independent entities from day 1, will lead to a certain structure. You need to understand the model and outcomes - models where companies only get formed / spun out when investment happens — which opens the door to revenue positive lines of business inside the studio — might get built very differently, including shared equity from the parent company.
I’ve had several great conversations around this recently so expect more on this as I take a stab at what a “collective” model looks like.
