  • Twelvefold Portfolio Companies

    Building the next interface layer of the internet by leveraging the incredible growth of Foundation Models like Large Language Models (LLMs) and access to cheap compute. With our deep expertise in AI and research, we are able to rapidly iterate and launch companies tackling various business verticals.

Studio companies defy the odds.

Here’s why startup studios are creating new norms for business building.

  • Better chances of success

    According to Global Startup Studios Network (GSSN), around 80-90% of startups that do it alone tend to fail, while startups that launch from studios have a 30% higher success rate.

  • Get funded faster

    Studio startups are 40% more likely to raise funding from seed to series A than non-studio startups.

  • Scale at a record rate

    On average, studios help startups go from creation to their seed round in just 10.6 months, which is less than a third of the time it takes for non-studio startups to raise a seed round.

  • Accelerated growth

    Supportive ecosystem, access to seed capital, expertise and operational resources, and connections to a broad network of founders, innovators, experts, investors, and markets lead to accelerated growth.

We have skin in the game from the start

Twelvefold provides fundamental support to our founders to help them execute and deliver on their vision.

  • Focus on what matters

    And that’s building your business. Leave the rest to us. Our operations team will handle legal, compliance, HR, and all the other activities that distract founders starting out.

  • Dream team as a co-founder

    From day 1, you will have access to a fully-stacked startup team with technical, product, marketing, and design expertise that’s working day in and out to ensure your success.

  • Access to capital

    The studio provides funding until a startup is validated, built, and spun out. Post that we will work with our community of investors for capital to scale your startup.

  • Immigration

    Some of the best startups are built by immigrants. As a venture studio, we have unique access to various immigration possibilities for you and will ensure you can succeed.


Get quick answers to your most pressing questions.

Are you an accelerator?

No. We build companies from scratch with our full-time operations team (engineering, design, product, marketing, legal) that partners with founders.

Where do your ideas come from?

Either through the studio team brings or an idea that a founder brings.

How do you select cofounders for your companies?

We are looking for those with strong domain knowledge or exceptional in GTM. That being said there are always exceptions to this.

Can you help me with immigration?

Yes, immigration shouldn’t be in the way of building a startup. Our immigration partner will work with you to craft a unique plan that will enable you to found your own company by leveraging different visa types including O-1, EB-1, and H1B amongst others.

What is your investment process and how long does it take?

We support and pay for all the costs until a company is spun out and is ready for the next institutional round.

What stage does Twelvefold Studio engage in?

We engage with founders who are looking to jump into entrepreneurship or are just starting out.

What are the advantages for investors?

Investors receive an entry point to breakout companies at the earliest valuations and a steady deal flow with investment opportunities for later rounds.

Are you a VC?

No, we are a company that builds companies. If you have an AI startup that you are already working on and have raised outside capital already, contact us and we’ll put you in touch with top investors in our network for further capital needs.
