Venture Studio

working with founders & funders to launch "redemptive moonshot" ventures.

Entrepreneurs-in-Residence present their ventures at the Redemptive Imagination Summit in Tarrytown, NY.
The Praxis Venture Studio originates a small number of “redemptive moonshots” in collaboration with Entrepreneurs-in-Residence and investment and philanthropic funding partners from the Praxis Capital community.

With a particular interest in starting ventures oriented toward large-scale change or "prophetic experiments," our work is guided by thematic areas that we believe are particularly important for how the world goes forward in the decades to come, including our evolving list of Opportunities for Redemptive Innovation (ORIs).

We have two approaches to our Venture Studio process. In one, we run a founder search based on an idea connected to our ORIs in order to find an Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EIR) with a deep interest in the same missional objective. Our team works closely with them to build a venture toward launch and, in most projects, a financial partner who shares a passion for the area of interest supports the exploratory stage of the concept. In the second, we work with serial entrepreneurs or proven leaders to develop a hunch they're working on (ideally in alignment with one of our ORIs) and work with them to develop a redemptive vision and strategy to launch the venture.

Stay tuned in 2022 for more information on future projects, and if you’re interested in partnering with us as an entrepreneur or funding partner, please indicate your interest in working on a particular ORI or contributing new issues for redemptive entrepreneurs to pursue by submitting the interest form below.

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.

Praxis is an organic, thriving community of radical believers committed to restoring God’s vision for commerce in our present times—and it has been the catalyst for a growing movement of redemptive entrepreneurs throughout rural, marginalized communities in Asia.

IANACARE

ianacare is a virtual care team for caregivers of people enduring prolonged illnesses. While caregivers are undeniably the invisible backbone of the healthcare system, they lack adequate structures of support. Our AI-powered care manager, “iana,” helps caregivers navigate the complexities of caregiving by providing much-needed coordination, on-demand clinical and non-clinical guidance, and community with other caregivers.
