We help founders, brands and growing teams build for impact

About West

West is a Venture Studio with a unique structure at the intersection of brand strategy, creative, business strategy and venture capital.

We’re a team of market and brand experts with investor discipline — and an investment fund — working together to bring brands to life. We bring diverse backgrounds as talented strategists, creatives, investors, marketers and researchers to activate where our partners need us the most. Since our founding we believe that brand usually trumps technology. The most innovative (and valuable) companies only become so when they build end-to-end experiences and therefore, a brand, that truly addresses customers’ unmet needs.

We are fortunate to have partnered with some of the world’s most innovative companies to define markets, design customer-centric brand strategies, execute on beloved end-to-end experiences, and invest in accelerated growth.

Our Values

Truth-tellers

Time and capital are too precious for us to sugar coat things. We tell you directly what we see so that we can get to the heart of the matter, together and quickly.

Uncommon

We bring diverse backgrounds as strategists, creatives, investors, marketers, thinkers and do-ers who challenge our companies to think differently.

Relentless

Tenacity and never giving up is often all that separates the winners and the losers. We are relentless in doing what it takes for you to be successful.

Brave

Building great companies requiries bold thinking and the ability to do what’s right and not what’s expected.

Optimists

To build companies that will change the world, you need to see the positive, the opportunity and openness to those daring enough to ask “what if?”.
