with Builders

We partner with founders to build industry-defining companies from the ground up, investing from pre-seed up to Series A.


Invest with the studio

We initially invest pre-seed at the launch of a company built with the studio when the company has successfully navigated through the selection gates of our studio model. From the seed stage and beyond, we continue our support by co-investing alongside institutional investors and VCs, further validating their potential and fostering their growth.

Where the brightest angels meet

Builders Investor House is a quarterly event hosted at the headquarters of inspiring tech companies. During these all-access events, the early days' stories and growth challenges are told by the founders firsthand. Investors build relationships at the event by participating in mini-challenges and providing valuable feedback.

Builder’s Investor Community consists of operator investors who uniquely contribute to the success of the studio and individual founders. Members come together at select events, offering a network of connections rarely seen, to whom co-investment opportunities in the studio or companies are offered on a regular basis.
