The process of doing things the right way gets our blood flowing and pulse racing
Strand Ventures is a multidisciplinary venture development firm that focuses on the right and responsible way to create and scale inspired companies, products, services, and digital solutions designed with innovation and integrity in mind.
What gets our blood flowing is identifying a significant market need or big problem and devising an inspired, elegant solution to meet it. We apply a problem-solving method called ‘first principles thinking’, the practice of actively questioning assumptions about a given problem or scenario , and then creating new knowledge and solutions. See if our process doesn’t get your pulse racing too.
We love that ah-ha moment
When we see a need in the market or a way to improve on something that already exists. That’s where critical thinking, research, and creating the right solution all come into play.
Breaking it can be better
We’re rigorous in creating and then deconstructing business plans and models to create the ideal solution. We also believe in learning from others and we rely on experts and the advice of those who’ve been there before.
We’re scrappy and proud of it
We pride ourselves on figuring out the fastest path to functional prototypes so we can quickly test products and services on real customers. Having the guts to get it to market fast means we understand what’s working and what’s not before investing lots of time and money.
Only rockstars need apply
The founding team of each endeavor drives the business and identifies others who possess the core competencies our plans call for. When adding to the team we don’t settle; we believe that great people always do their best work if given the opportunity in the right environment.
It’s go time
We launch businesses with a solid plan, great people, tested products and services, and the seed capital required to establish a presence and initial growth. Launching includes professionalizing the business from the start and building a solid infrastructure.
The sky’s the limit
We obsess from ideation through execution to make sure every detail is exactly right because success is the metric that matters most. Once we get those things figured out we have the fuel we need to set the business on fire by raising growth capital responsibly and establishing strategic partnerships.
