25Madison is a different kind of startup studio, innovation hub and investment vehicle dedicated to finding, enhancing, and accelerating early stage and new business concepts.
Today's market offers substantial availability of financial capital but more limited opportunity for entrepreneurs to work with and learn from seasoned professionals who have built successful businesses from the ground up.
Collectively, the partners at 25Madison have more than 200 years of experience running and operating complex businesses, ranging from multi-national entertainment companies to advertising agencies, from consumer product companies to premier financial institutions.
Our mission is to apply that collective wisdom -- and the partnerships, competencies, and strategies that we have learned and developed -- to help solve the most vexing problems entrepreneurs face every day in building their businesses. In essence, we offer you, the entrepreneur, proven strategies, proven processes and best of breed business practices to maximize the likelihood of your success, freeing you up to focus on what YOU do best.
We know firsthand that every enterprise requires creative vision, business savvy, tireless devotion and substantial finance. Let us lend you ours and together build a great business.
We ideate and incubate our own ideas or will partner with a select group of entrepreneurs with viable business concepts.
We support entrepreneurs in the earliest stages, working collaboratively and intimately with visionaries to create and grow enterprises.
We partner and scale small businesses, leveraging our expertise and network to help grow existing operations.
We invest in seed stage businesses, offering active operational and managerial support.
You put everything you've got into your startup enterprise: creative vision, business savvy, tireless devotion and financial resources. But will it be enough to advance your business beyond your initial business plan, or once formed, beyond the perilous "valley of death" from which so many never emerge?
If you are an entrepreneur, 25Madison will surround you with the expertise, experience and discipline to avoid common missteps, that, if not fatal, will become increasingly expensive to fix later.
If you are an angel or venture investor, 25Madison will collaborate with you on specific projects and portfolio companies to enhance outcomes.
