Startup Incubator & Venture Builder For Entrepreneurs

Support Without Funding For Startups


Startup Incubator / Venture Building

Ideation, Validation, and Investment To Grow Your Ideas Into A Technology Startup

NEXEA Startup Incubator / Venture Building is a service for entrepreneurs without strong business plan that fits our criteria. This gives entrepreneurs that do not need funding a chance to work with our top mentors and to also get huge support from our experts and partners.

What is a Startup Incubator / Venture Builder?

Venture builders, business incubators, or investor startup studios bring in early-stage external startups and help them grow by providing them with expertise.

At the very end of the spectrum, some VC firms are growing closer to the startup studio model by intervening very operationally in the startup they invest; for instance Andreessen Horowitz and Google Ventures. However, this participation is usually limited to some areas, such as recruitment, fund raising, or PR relations.

How NEXEA’s Startup Incubator / Venture Builder works

The Four Core Components, From Ideation to Exit


NEXEA can help develop small ideas into much stronger ones with our ideation experience. We also have a repository of ideas that could use a group of entrepreneurs to build.


We help validate business plans to see if it can survive idea validation, market validation, and growth validation with minimal cost to the Startup. No point trying something on your own that could waste most of your time & money.


We start out with pilot funding for companies that have validated their idea and would like to pursue market validation. This usually ranges from 50-100k depending on early forms of traction.


We continuously help the company to grow via mentoring by the top investors in their class (IPO, M&A, PLCs). These ex-entrepreneurs are known for sharing their experience, knowledge & network.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQ's on Startup Incubator and Venture Building

We are strong believers in the Entrepreneur who takes control of the company to build something great. No hired person usually have the responsibility and dedication to push a company through the toughest of times.

We are Entrepreneurs ourselves, and we see opportunity everywhere we turn in the Startup world. More often than not, we see many Startup ideas that do not work based on our experience. Waiting for entrepreneurs to find the right business idea can take quite a while, and at any point in time, there are many traditional industries that entrepreneurs have yet to disrupt using technology.

Using our experience in Startup idea validation, market validation, growth validation, support services, investment advice, real mentoring, and more, we believe our Startup incubator / Venture Building services can help nurture the next generation of tech giants.

NEXEA builds tech giants of the future together with teams of entrepreneurs. These are companies that have the potential to disrupt or shift existing traditional industries using technology.

We also look for companies that can grow to a minimum size of 1 billion in valuations to justify the amount of risk we are taking. We venture into companies that are capital efficient only – meaning that investments should ideally go into technology & growth.
