The Inside Track: How to Build Ventures Successfully

September 16, 2022

In our recent webcast, we chatted with three leaders at venture building firms: Sean Sheppard, Managing Director of U+; Elliott Parker, CEO of High Alpha Innovation; and Ben Yoskovitz, Founding Partner of Highline Beta.


Sheppard, Yoskovitz, and Parker took questions from the audience about different models for venture building, what types of new ventures they most commonly build, what organizations need to know before partnering with venture builders, and more. They also discussed their tips for successful venture building, defined the differences between studios and builders, and shared details about their respective firms. Alex Slawsby, Chief Growth Officer at InnoLead, led this session. 


This webcast is part of our ongoing venture studios initiative. We’re aiming to help our community better understand the landscape of venture studios and venture builders, and to identify how they may prove valuable for many organizations. We’ll host Sheppard again on October 6 at 2 PM ET for the next webcast in this series, where he and one of his corporate partners will discuss U+’s model for breakthrough venture building inside large organizations.
