We invest in
idea-stage tech startups

Capital, team, experience: we invest the required resources to turn tech ideas into revenue-generating businesses.

“You’re too early”, investors say

/front/images/emoticon-angry.0cae8eb71cf4d6e00369b8d23aba4c13.svg

Too many extremely promising tech projects never get off the ground because founders don't have the required financial and technical resources to bring their idea to life.

And even though there is more money than good projects available on the market, almost no investor is willing to take the risk of investing as early as at the idea stage.

This is where Make it Studio comes in: we bridge the gap between founders and Venture Capital.
