EV Studio

The leading Venture Studio for pre-seed, seed and growth stage companies

EV Studio is a highly personalized Venture Studio investing extensive time and resources into a startup’s business. Our team sticks around for the lifetime of your business. We don’t believe in cookie-cutter accelerators or incubators who run multiple cohorts a year and spit you out after just 3 months!

Our studio utilizes over 50 years of combined startup experience to help companies establish strong foundations while traversing the highs and lows of building a successful startup.

Whether you’re at an early concept stage, or have achieved product-market fit and are looking for growth investment, we have the right tailored program for you.

The life of a startup is like a game of Snakes and Ladders where each day you have choices to make in scaling your business. We provide the tools and know-how to help you scale the growth ladders while avoiding the slippery snakes.

No matter what stage you're at, we'll tailor a program suited to your needs.

Achieving a maximum return with your available cash and resources, while battling an ever-shortening runway, is critical to your success.


The EV Studio is founded on 4 essential building-block programs needed to develop a successful startup -

EV Build, EV Go, EV Growth, and EV Capital.

When you first join the studio we‘ll evaluate what stage you’re at and tailor a program just for your business. This will focus on areas that maximize your time with us while delivering the necessary results for you to be successful.

Time spent in the EV Studio starts from 6 months with a total investment of $250,000 of studio time in return for 5% equity. Studio time can be extended for an additional fee if needed. Ongoing post-studio support is complimentary to help ensure your growth to exit.


Where do I start?
Regardless of your current stage, we can tailor a program to you

Example 3
Strong PMF raising growth capital

Exit Velocity has developed 3 tried and tested Bootcamps to provide a fast-paced introduction to the EV Studio's essential building-block programs.

I wasn't getting the traction I needed to get to the next level, so I invited Exit Velocity to evaluate my startup. In just 2 hours we'd worked out what the real value proposition was, where I needed to focus short-term and how to execute on a revised plan. Result!
