This article, published in French by Les Echos, reflects BtwinZ founders’ vision and experience on the startup studio model.
Apparently, the incubator and studio models look similar. They cooperate with start-ups to help them growing, getting funded and operate. They allow them to benefit from their network.
However, studios and incubators actually fundamentally differ.
An incubator recruits start-ups already created and hosts them. However, an incubator doen’t take a significant stake in the company. On the other hand, a start-up studio, or a venture builder, will concretize an idea, create the start-up, take a substantial share in the company and drive the development.
