Welcome to BURO Ventures

Where Better Understanding Results in Opportunities!

OUR PURPOSE

BURO Ventures was founded on the belief that entrepreneurship should be feasible for anyone.

At Buro Ventures, we believe that Better Understanding Results in Opportunities (BURO). That's why we are dedicated to helping aspiring individuals reach financial independence, by making it easier to figure out what to do, how to do it, and how to stick with it.

We understand that true independence comes not only from having the right tools, but also the right mindset. By combining education in Academy, creating businesses in Studio, and having access to tools and assets from Lab and Invest, we create an ecosystem for entrepreneurial growth.

HOW DID WE GET HERE?

Our Story

Our journey has 3 main events that have led us to where we are today. 

Entrepreneurship and consulting

It all began back in 2011, when we started exploring digital entrepreneurship and consulting. Our path has been shaped by extensive experimentation with various business models and systems to grasp the “ins and outs” of the digital world. We consulted various businesses, generating $10M+ for our clients and ourselves.

Innovating business models

The second was when we faced a choice: continue as consultants or explore new business models. We chose the latter in order to remove the glass ceiling of billable hours as consultants. This resulted in converting recruitment into a revenue source rather than a cost, allowing us to unlock completely new business models. This model involved sharing our SOPs by investment.

Creating the Venture Garden

 The third was when we got into AI in November of 2022. Through integrating AI with our current models, the vision of autonomously run businesses dawned upon us. This breakthrough culminated in the launch of the SATCO program, a one-of-a-kind program where a selected group becomes a part of our venture garden, a place where businesses are planted and grown. 

"Our mission is clear: to equip individuals with the knowledge and resources they need to achieve financial independence."
