COMMUNITY-DRIVEN VENTURE BUILDING PROCESS
Risks & Rewards-Shared
External but Internal
CO-INVESTING IN AND WITH COLLECTIVE FUND
Primarily, all corporate members of the community make limited investments in a community collective investment fund, which spreads the risks by using a portfolio approach to its investments. After that the fund co-invests on a parity basis with each community member in building corporate startups, reducing their risks by half. Thus, corporate member of the community benefits twice: as an investor in the collective fund and as an investor in the their own startup.
START WITH CENTERS OF EXCELLENCE
The venture building begins with poseing farfetched hypotheses, exploring the question “What if...?” Our entrepreneurial scientists allow hypotheses to evolve through variation and selection, collaborating with external experts to test the weaknesses and strengths of new concepts. We create better and better hypotheses until we identify something that might be a breakthrough, if only it worked. We call these imaginative groups "Centers of Excellence” with minimal project funding.
VALIDATION IN LABS
Promising Centers of Excellence become prototype lab, or “Labs” with more substantial project funding and are assigned a number according to their place in the series: “L1,” “L2,”… “L10,” etc. Our founding teams test concepts, and discontinue Labs that cannot, for whatever reason, validate their science in the laboratory. We use the word "origination" to mean the conception, iteration, and launch of a new company around a distinct breakthrough.
If the founding team can plausibly convert the question “What if…” to the answer, “It turns out...” a Lab becomes a new company, or “Startup,” with a name and significant capital commitment. Each Startup focuses on developing a proprietary platform that will deliver years of important new products, and recruits a board of directors, CEO, and leadership team. At this stage, the corporate co-founder of the startup usually gives the startup access to the market for pilot projects.
BUYING OUT A SCALEUP 'S SHARE FROM A FUND AND INTEGRATION
Ultimately, a Startup is spun out to become a growth company, or “Scaleup.” A Scaleup’s leadership team attracts outside investors, forges partnerships, and builds a business that creates extraordinary future value, often operating as public companies. At this stage, the corporate co-founder buys out the collective fund's share in the scaleup and integrates the scaleup into its organizational structure. This is where the venture-building process ends.
