What Venture Studios Can Do For You? – A Conversation with Jake Hurwitz of Gallery Partners.

Venture Capital Studios are a rather new way to tackle the sticky situation around funding. Learn from someone with major studio experience on how it differs from other forms of funding. 

Jake Hurwitz started his first company at 8 years old, a skateboard repair company. It failed miserably. But at 18 he started a design agency and made his way into the venture studio space in 2017. In 2018 he started the Global Startup Studio Network, which later sold to the Global Accelerator Network. 

He now consults with about 120 studios around the world with Gallery Partners. He’s here to teach us all a lot about the venture studio space, and why it has changed SO much in the past 6 months alone.
