Waxdale Ventures is Waxdale’s startup studio, a startup studio also known as a startup factory, or a startup foundry, or a venture builder, is a studio-like company that aims at building several companies in succession. This style of business building is referred to as "parallel entrepreneurship". We do so by raising three funds, three years in a row. The first fund is always a Validation fund, we use this fund to create 10 startup projects and the goal of the first year is to validate as many of them as possible or achieve product-market-fit. The second fund is called the Monetization fund, this simply means that we put our foot on the gas pedal and focus on making as much money as possible. The third year we raise the Growth fund and this one focuses on increasing our market share as fast as possible. We also do co-investments and joint ventures. To build our projects we operate a software company, CLP & Software L.P. , that focuses on creating software solutions for entrepreneurship. Lastly, the projects are brought to the market by our team from Waxdale Advisory Services L.P.Founders’ Login
Waxdale Ventures is a startup engineering business, but we also have the capacity to operate the startups we generate through our systems. Professional business operators need to put in place the right operating structure and ours look like this: 1) Find a strategy leader, 2) Find a funding leader, 3) Find an operating leader, 4) Find a sales and marketing leader. As the project goes from one stage of the startup lifecycle to the next our leaders need to restructure the business to ensure execution matches growth.
The beautiful thing about Waxdale is that we can control the whole creative process, from idea generation to project design to testing. We have internal tools that enable us to generate ideas in tons, programs that help us structure the startup, as well as access to an incubator to ensure the proper development of the company. We also have partnerships with marketing firms which facilitates access to specific markets.
