How We Do It

Engenesis is out to create a powerful platform that enables new technology-based or technology-enabled companies to be created leaner, faster and with less risk. We do this in four different areas.

DISCOVER OUR APPROACH TO BUILDING VENTURES

Engenesis was founded by entrepreneurs to further entrepreneurship itself. The Engenesis Venture Building Framework™ is the vehicle through which we work with people to refine their ideas, develop strong business cases and build their product. Regardless of whether you are a startup entrepreneur or a business leader, our Venture Building Programs are effective in navigating through the challenges of building a new technology product and taking it to the market. We do this through workshops, our unique network of advisors and investors and through funding assistance.


Ideation Phase

Ideation Phase

The Ideation Phase works to guide teams to significantly refine their business idea. Crafting a business idea that harnesses the organisation’s passion whilst also having a strong market demand is no easy feat.

The program supports entrepreneurs and leaders to initially test the market demand, validate their idea and become clear on their company DNA before moving their business forward.


Tailored To Your Needs

The program is unique in that it is customized to the stage your idea and the strengths and capabilities already developed. We assess the gaps in your new venture and then work to guide you through those areas of your business. This results in an intensive process to accelerate you through the idea stage of your business.

As a result, the customized programs run from between 2 - 12 weeks depending on the developmental state of the idea.

Venture Design Phase

Venture Design Phase

The Venture Design Phase transforms your business idea into a fully fledged business opportunity and strategic roadmap. How do you need to grow the business, take it to your market, and strengthen the opportunity around the idea?

The program is hands on. Not only are founding teams starting to build partnerships and gathering founding customers, they also progress through the product design process. This results in their first working interactive prototype or functional MVP that can be shared with investors, initial customers or other important stakeholders.

The program runs from six to eight weeks. Participants must be graduates of the Ideation Program to be eligible for the Venture Design Program.

Funding is available to startups at this stage. See the funding page for more information.

BUILD AND LAUNCH PHASE

Build and Launch Phase

The Build and Launch Phase works with founding teams and organisations through the product development process to launch to the market their first version product.

Participants in the program obtain exclusive access to a fully fledged product design team that, through the unique Planned Agile™ methodology, develop the first version product. In addition, each venture goes through a future-proofing product architecture process to ensure that the foundations are laid for the appropriate level of scale and scope, according to the vision of the company.

Alongside product development, Engenesis guides the customer development process ready for a powerful launch.

Founders and organisations come out of this program with a high level of tech-business literacy so that they can lead their company into the future.

VENTURE PARTNER PROGRAM

Venture Partner Program

Engenesis is a Venture Builder founded by passionate and accomplished entrepreneurs with the intention to build multiple companies in parallel.

Unlike the Venture Capital model where only capital is injected to grow early-stage companies, Venture Builders are hands on with their investment portfolios, building them day in and day out. This gives us a very hands on approach. We know what is happening on the ground as we are building companies ourselves.

In addition, our portfolio companies get exclusive exposure to our shared resources, connections and in-market learnings to drive their growth faster, leaner and with less risk.

Funding is available to startups at this stage. See the funding page for more information. Learn more about our funding program.
