WE’RE A VENTURE STUDIO

WE TURN
IDEAS INTO
BUSINESSES

We’re not a fund that invests in ventures.
We build them.

As a venture studio, we have a ‘launchpad-to-escape velocity’ approach. Companies born at Prototyze benefit from offices and infrastructure, centralised business services (financial, legal, recruitment), expert assistance in key stages (strategy, planning, product development...), the ability to plug-into existing systems & processes and connection to a network of clients, partners and investors.

What in the world is a Venture Studio?

There are two very different types of entities which are confusingly called by the same name: Incubators.

  • We’ve Built

We’re sector agnostic. But keen only on ventures where we foreseeably have a competitive advantage and which serve a (probably) perennial need.
We’re not interested in mindless geo-clones. Or ideas that satisfy the mood-of-the-season among VC’s.Basically, we try to build sane, sustainable companies that we’d be proud of for years.

"What in the world are we trying to do"

A note from the founder
We set-up Prototyze to improve the process of creating successful, innovation-driven businesses. VC firms aren’t designed to coach and hand-hold a fledgling venture through it’s early years, especially AFTER capital infusion. We believe this is crucial for success, and our goal is to enable this support system for all our ventures. Read More

InnerHeads: The Scaffolding For All We Build

Innerheads is the organisational glue that holds our entire ecosystem together. It provides centralised business services to all our ventures, and takes care of everything from hiring, to facilities management, to financial MIS management, to legal and administrative support. It’s led by highly credentialed and deeply experienced professionals who have worked at some of India’s (and the world’s) largest corporates, and provides a quality of service that most startups (even well-funded ones) would find difficult to afford or internalize. It’s the metaphorical oil that keeps our venture machinery operating smoothly and efficiently.

Private Unlimited: Our First ‘Incubator’

Private Unlimited is our first entrepreneurial ecosystem, built around knowledge-capital based service ventures. It comprises 3 autonomous companies that work independently, yet frequently combine to provide integrated communication solutions for both large corporate clients, as well as our Prototyze incubated ventures.
