Launching The Startup Studio Newsletter

The studio sphere moves so fast. We’re talking lightning speed.

Alper Celen, industry veteran, thought leader, and founder of Enhance Ventures, recently wrote an article on LinkedIn about the growth of studios across the globe. There are over 700 active studios with over 50% having been launched in the last 6 years.

It’s been incredible to watch this industry grow and, as someone who is always deeply curious about studio activity, I like to keep my finger on the pulse. I love discovering new studios, models, and opportunities but I’ll admit that trying to stay updated on all the venture builder news is tough.

From new launches to fundraise announcements, events, and new programs, all the content can be overwhelming to sort through.

There’s also a lot of noise in the ecosystem. It takes time to figure out what’s relevant and who is credible. It also sucks to miss something (like a program or event) because I wasn’t aware of it.

To solve this problem, for myself and others, I launched a newsletter.

And I am pumped about it!
