Ensure you are heading to your destination

Venture Mills provides you with a map of the territory and a model of interpretation helping you to make sense of the counteracting forces in play and allowing you to navigate through the perils of entrepreneurship.

  • Running a venture is often compared to driving a fast concept car on a track.
  • This would imply there is a path to follow and it is always the same.
  • For us, it’s more akin to navigation through uncharted waters: you know where you want to go but so many visible and invisible obstacles and forces can make you veer of course, or even capsize.

Execute your idea

Venture Mills provides a systemic approach and re-usable components to ensure that an economically viable and scalable solution is executed faster and at lower costs.

  • Most startups we met during our 50+ cumulative years of experience are romantic about their ideas and capabilities.
  • They have rarely taken the time to test their assumptions and validate their beliefs against reality.
  • Expectations are inflated and resources are wasted uselessly.

Increase the success rate of your ventures

Venture Mills provides an in depth understanding of the principles underpinning each development stage of a venture as well as the capacity to transform challenging situations into successful outcomes.

  • The success rate of most new ventures is abysmally low: only 10 to 15% succeed to find and profitably serve their market.
  • Too many resources are (mis)spent on re-inventing the wheel and/or pursuing chimeric opportunities.
  • Failing is not an option, but is a capital injection enough to succeed?

 

How do we get involved?

 

Skin in the game

 

All projects need a synchronization of the available resources, both internal and external, to ensure a timely and efficient execution.
We believe that all parties involved in the pursuit of a common objective, must have aligned interests and incentives.
Our experience teaches us that failure to do so creates perverse distortions and dangerous asymmetries which eventually lead to undesired outcomes.

 

Venture Mills offers distinct ways to engage to the best advantage of your project.
And we always prefer to have skin in the game.
