Venture Studio: the partner of choice for your business in 2023
March 23, 2023
How does MTP Venture Studio work?
Where we identify an exploitable market gap, but no attractive investment opportunities, we incubate our own concept internally. Once concept validation is achieved and our rigorous product-market fit qualification satisfied, we plug in relevant subject experts from our network to develop the concept and prepare the venture for funding and MVP development.
We also partner with external pre-Seed to Series A businesses to provide entrepreneurs and business owners with the toolkit to nurture their venture into a real-world, disruptive, and scalable new tech-led company or strategic pivot.
“Our iterative, experimental and feedback-driven process helps our clients refine their product or service offering to better meet their customers' needs, demands and expectations”
We work closely with our clients to evaluate the viability of their concepts, gathering thorough market research and feedback from potential customers and relevant stakeholders. Our concept validation process endeavours to kill off concepts unlikely to succeed and recommend strategic pivots, based on our experience building successful ventures, meaning our portfolio businesses limit the risk of wasted resources and investment and are free to focus their efforts on concepts with a higher success potential.
Product-market fit is critical for business success. A concept with a strong product-market fit will be adopted quickly by the target user, foster strong customer loyalty, win significant market share, generate sustainable revenue streams, and drive growth.
We work closely with our clients to develop a deep understanding of their target customers, their needs, and the surrounding competitive landscape. Our iterative, experimental, and feedback-driven process helps our clients refine their product or service offering to better meet their customers' needs, demands and expectations.
Networking and connections are critical for the success of any business. As MTP Venture Studio clients, our portfolio businesses have full access to MTP’s vetted network of advisors, industry experts and service providers. Our clients leverage these valuable connections to access the right people, resources and knowledge required to make their venture a success. MTP’s vetted network introductions saves our clients time, allows them to build valuable relationships, and gain a true competitive edge in the market.
Investment & Fundraise
Harnessing our extensive fundraise experience, we get our portfolio companies mission-ready for fundraise by curating a dossier of critical financial and investment materials contained within a virtual data room. We ensure our client’s investment story is palatable to target investors by focussing on the specific investment criteria, metrics and KPIs required by early-stage investors when making informed investment decisions.
MTP commits to concepts and ventures that align with our company values and that we believe in. We are founder-focussed, so it is crucial that we believe in the entrepreneurs vision for their business.
Where appropriate, we make introductions to our global network of relevant angels, VCs, and family offices. We prepare our clients and get them closer to the funding needed to make their venture a success, but it is down to the entrepreneur or business owner to close the deal.
MTP offers a comprehensive suite of tools and technical solutions. Our portfolio businesses gain access to our full technical team of digital architects, engineers, UI/UX designers, and project managers, who are well-versed in the latest technologies, languages, and best practices, to support across ideation and prototyping to development, testing, and deployment. Whether our client requires a web or mobile application, cloud-based solution, or leverage AI and machine learning technologies, we deliver exceptional results.
By working with MTP's technical team, our clients can accelerate their development timelines, reduce costs, and deliver high-quality solutions that meet the demands of their target customers.

Funding is critical to starting a business or delivering a digital transformation. Poor business case communication and execution of the fundraise process typically leads to many attractive opportunities being rejected by prospective investors. We ensure that the proposition meets the near-term expectations of our investor network, but also illustrates the significant long-term commercial opportunity and vision for the business. Using this approach, we aim to maximise the probability of successfully raising the capital our clients need to deliver their next phase.
