SOCS Gokson Capital Ventures disrupts the venture capital ecosystem with its new model of start-up studio
Venture studio model offers entrepreneurs additional support beyond finance to boost their success
LONDON, England (November 9, 2021) — With around 90% of startups fail, many entrepreneurs and business advisers are wondering if traditional models of the venture capital ecosystem are outdated. This conventional model of accelerators and incubators tends to reward budding entrepreneurs for their next big ideas with the capital they need to get started and grow.

One of those groups that is disrupting the traditional venture capital ecosystem is SGC Ventures. The London-based company works with under-represented founders to match them with the resources they need to validate, build, scale and launch globally.
