11.2 Venture Builder Studio Model:

Move fast and make things.

At 11.2, business ideas are developed by real-world executives, addressing immediate business challenges and needs with critical expertise. Once a business-building opportunity is identified, our team of experts gets the wheels in motion and significantly compresses the time from idea to exit because velocity matters.

11.2 Corporate Structure:

This is where businesses make their big break.

11.2 is not a venture fund. 11.2 is a business. Technically, we’re a business of businesses, each led by subject matter experts who set out to solve significant real-world problems. By structuring our business-creation process in a way that resembles a factory floor – allowing each team member to do what they do best – speed is increased and risk is diminished. 11.2 businesses do not rely on the daily, sometimes erratic performance of a single entrepreneur. Instead, businesses are built in-house by a thoughtfully-selected co-operative of big thinkers and guided by fast-moving executors and project managers. Our partnership structure and our team make it easier, faster, and far less risky than ever to build, grow, scale, and exit. Read more

11.2 LifeCycle Management:

Calculated risks that drive maximized results.

11.2 uses a laddered portfolio risk management approach in line with the LifeCycle model and staged construct. This is a fixed income portfolio management approach that has been repurposed and re-imagined for the venture space. 11.2 values each stage of a company as if it were an individual security. This allows for prudent cash flow management, diversification benefit, and risk mitigation across the portfolio of companies. Read more

We endeavor to build out AI platforms that can be leveraged across numerous portfolio companies.
