About Leap Venture Studio
Each three-month, LA based Studio programs consists of six companies. We begin with a product and brand assessment that identifies each company’s strategic needs. Once identified, we create an individualized impact plan for each business. The Venture Studio is supported by R/GA, a world-class services platform that connects our startups to award-winning strategists, technologists, designers and consultants. The combined networks and resources of R/GA, Mars Petcare (Kinship) and Michelson Found Animals, makes the Leap Venture Studio the most effective startup accelerator in the pet industry.
The Leap Venture Studio culminates in a live-pitch event where Studio companies pitch to investors, industry leaders and the LA startup community.
