A studio is a company that helps establish and fund new startups. They provide the necessary resources and support for the development of ideas, testing, and creating products. They also help assemble the founding team and, in return for their contribution, receive co-founding equity in the resulting businesses.
Studios are more actively involved in the development process than other types of startup support organizations, such as accelerators and incubators. These organizations typically offer support for a specific period of time through structured programs, while studios create and develop their own ventures.
