We are dedicated to co-creating entrepreneur-centric companies.
Entrepreneurship is one of life's most challenging and rewarding endeavors.
We empower you in your founder's journey by providing the guidance and resources required to be successful.
R1 is founder focused.
Our Partnering Process
We qualify entrepreneurs by their talent, grit, and dedication - not their idea.
Only after identifying an entrepreneur do we evaluate an idea or business.
In as little as 120 days go from an idea to paying customers.
You determine if Rule 1 and its Entrepreneur in Residence model would be a fit for you as an entrepreneur. You learn more about everything that Rule 1 has to offer.
If you agree that Rule 1 can benefit you in your entrepreneurial journey, we next identify, test, and modify your business or idea to ensure Product-Market fit.
Once a path forward is determined, we work at a blistering pace, using proven methodologies, to design and build a working prototype while identifying your first customers.
How Rule 1 is Different
Not all businesses should be backed by traditional venture capital.
Rule 1 is a Venture Studio that is founder-focused and aligned with entrepreneurs.
Rule 1 partners with founders to co-create businesses that scale.
