Frequently asked questions


The Atlanta Ventures Studio is where we support outstanding founders, from the beginning, to build companies from scratch. We are leveraging a repeatable framework/process to help create a unique experience for entrepreneurs to learn and increase odds of success. Support is provided in terms of startup resources, mentoring, community, office space, and financial considerations.


Our goal is to systematically start and grow successful companies. We’ll combine talented entrepreneurs with our experience to start several companies per year. We want to help create the next $100M business.


The Studio journey starts with finding and validating an idea (entrepreneur idea, Atlanta Ventures idea, or other) through customer discovery. Next, the Studio Entrepreneur will launch the company and commit to move forward as CEO. Finally, an initial investment will be provided to build a MVP, get sales traction, and work towards Product/Market Fit, as an Atlanta Ventures portfolio company.


We are looking for entrepreneurs that want to commit full-time to building a business (vs. just an advisory role). Ideally, Studio Entrepreneurs would have previous startup experience, be positive, are self-starting, and have lots of grit! This role is Atlanta based.


Over the last several years we’ve worked with a number of excellent entrepreneurs to start companies such as Calendly, SalesLoft, Terminus, Rigor, and Pardot . Some thrive in pursuit of Product/Market Fit, most fail. We've helped build over 30 companies worth almost $5B.

“The Atlanta Ventures Studio is the best place for an entrepreneur to tackle a big, hard, mission-critical problem. It feels like I’m leagues ahead: the resources, the network of people from investors to partners to employees, the shared support, the community, and all the help are tremendous advantages to early stage companies not found anywhere else on the planet.”
