In the initial stage we come up with new ideas for ventures - specifically use case ventures - leveraging JB10X Consulting with its market insights and business development. Our unfair advantage apart from our expertise is the direct market access and first customers before we have even launched the venture through consulting projects.
In this stage we validate the concept by researching the market and its potential, identifying the real customer problem, validating the legal & tech feasibility. We develop the business plan including the validation of attractiveness of the unit economics.
Now we build the MVP based on our infrastructure and start the business development - also outside of existing JB10X Consulting customers. We build up the founding team as well as the structures (incl. legal entity) of the venture and cover the seed investment.
In the multi-step scaling phase, the venture focusses on growth by acquiring more customers, potentially expanding to new markets and developing new features. We will cover scaling investment partially and the venture will be open to external investments in this stage.
Exits are not our focus for individual ventures since we want to grow a portfolio with clear synergies that fuel our core infrastructures. Nevertheless, in some cases it might be strategically beneficial to work towards an exit.
