The revamped Praxis Studio is home to Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIRs) building their next venture, as well as regular sessions for Praxis community members to think, build, and create together at key inflection venture and vocational points.
At different times in history, creative groups have gathered to build together in ways that shaped the society around them, often advancing countercultural ideas and breakthrough innovations through dynamic relationships. Our vision is for the Studio to be one of these environments, rooted in a physical center in NYC that hosts the Praxis community.
The Studio’s Discovery Sessions are for EIRs to be surrounded by creative thinkers, practical theologians, and strategic funders; Design Sessions are to craft new ventures or new venture innovation and growth strategies; and ORI Forums build a thesis and community for a specific ORI.
Being an EIR in the Venture Studio was unlike any other startup formation process I've been through before. This is my third venture from scratch—but here I built the foundations of our venture by exploring the history, culture, and dynamics of caregiving, with a brilliant PhD scholar, a spiritual director, and expert mentors. It also played a significant role in my healing and intent as a founder.
