Full time



Aug 30

Studio Management is a data-driven asset manager investing across public equities and venture capital. Our mission is to influence the flow of capital into companies that improve society & push culture forward.

As public market investors, we’ve posted top decile returns using our data-driven approach. Prior to Studio, our Managing Partner, Alap Shah founded Sentieo, an AI driven Bloomberg terminal replacement, as a way to leverage alternative data to gain alpha in the public markets. Sentieo merged with AlphaSense in 2022 and is now used by the world’s top investment funds.

As venture investors, we finance value-aligned startups across stages and sectors, leveraging our experience as entrepreneurs. Companies we’ve co-founded have collectively raised over $90m in venture capital and have scaled to over 1,000 employees. We marry this experience as entrepreneurs with our data driven approach as investors to identify startups advancing societal health, productivity and well-being—including DocSend Lightning Labs, Thistle, Flux, Hungry Marketplace, Yassir, and Jane Technologies.
