Our Approach

We are hands-on and collaborative. We are always learning. We are not afraid to admit mistakes and adapt.

As a venture studio, we play the role of venture funder and company builder. We provide the strategic direction and capital that enables a startup to achieve product-market fit. We invest in highly talented people to do all of this work in-house and with great success.

Our Track Record

We have generated over $350 million in revenue across 15 companies and 25 brands over 20 years.

Since founding our very first company in 1999, we’ve made a name for ourselves in real estate, website design, outsourcing, digital marketing, software development, co-working spaces, and a wide range of corporate services.

VS12 Leadership

Tiger Bitanga, Luigi Amante, and Jon Krabbe, are at the bleeding edge of startup development and technology. In 1999, they founded the Design People Inc. during the height of the dotcom bubble.

On the cusp of the next iteration of the World Wide Web, they are looking to set the stage for the next generation of tech entrepreneurs.
