How GrowthJockey addresses venture incubation challenges for enterprises


Large enterprises encounter numerous challenges hindering their growth, especially in the segment of venture incubation. Navigating digital transformation remains complex, compounded by the need to make crucial choices among disruptive technologies like advanced AI, blockchain, and IoT among others.

Moreover, scaling innovations beyond the initial stages is another hurdle as future businesses struggle to prioritize ideas and allocate resources effectively. Recruiting digital talent and prioritizing investment amidst numerous options further complicates decision-making, especially for early-stage ventures. Managing the cost and uncertainty of return on investment adds complexity to digital transformation efforts.

GrowthJockey is looking to address these challenges for enterprises as well as accelerating the growth of future businesses. We spoke to founder and CEO Ashutosh Kumar to learn more about GrowthJockey, what distinguishes it from the competition and the roadmap ahead. Here are the edited excerpts

There are not a lot of companies that are catering to this space, especially targeted at the enterprises. How did you come up with this idea?

In my decade-long experience at leading large corporations, I repeatedly found myself involved in building future ventures for these organizations. Throughout these endeavors, I recognized a significant unmet need within the industry – large companies were eager to invest in and develop futuristic ventures but faced considerable challenges in finding the 0-100 capabilities required for building ventures from ground zero to full-scale operation.

Reflecting on industry trends, I observed a shift in the mindset of forward-looking companies. While two decades ago, companies began adapting and building digital capabilities, today’s forward-looking enterprises are more inclined towards developing in-house venture building. They recognize the strategic advantage of internal incubation, which aligns closely with their ecosystem and vision, thereby helping in fostering the right company culture from the outset.

Recognizing the limitations of past approaches – where large enterprises attempted to navigate the 0-100 journey by engaging multiple agencies and consulting firms leading to fragmented efforts and limited success- I saw an opportunity to address this challenge. This realization motivated me to establish GrowthJockey, aiming to build the massive capability needed to execute the 0-1 and 1-100 journey for large enterprise ventures. Our focus lies in creating an ecosystem of agile technology and talent, enabling us to deliver transformative solutions in venture incubation and digital transformation.
