Entrepreneur in-house - The Greenhouse Startup Studio

Scroll to content

Who we are

We are a Startup Studio building what the world needs next. We aim to achieve it by experimenting rapidly, uniting bold founders, and investing in the unpredictable. We’re hackers, persistently discovering how to create things people desire. We co-create and launch traction-heavy ventures. By doing so, we generate repeatable paths and reduce the risk required to create such outcome. We act as a co-founder alongside our entrepreneurs and bring on the table production capabilities, experience and pretty much everything a startup needs to grow fast. We raised a fund to build 10 startups a year for the next 10 years, investing from pre-seed to series A. 

We are backed by Chalhoub Group, a leading family business in the world of luxury lifestyle for over 65 years and a certified #GreatPlaceToWork with more than 12,000 people in 14 countries managing 300+ brands and 680+ retail stores. We sit in The Greenhouse, our Innovation hub, housing our Startup Studio as well as our Retail Tech Accelerator and Brand Incubation Programs. It’s a space dedicated for using lean startups methodologies with an aim to create new business models, categories and markets. 

What you will be doing:

You are on a mission to crack the Mental wellness industry!

You will first join us as an Entrepreneur in-house for a period of 2 months where we will explore together business ideas based on users’ pain points, design a solution, prototype and shadow launch the new model. 

Using data-driven evidence, we will iterate our solution until we have validated a strong value proposition and early market traction. When successful, we will build a new venture together that you will lead as CEO (responsible for the growth of the company) or COO (responsible for delivering the best experience to users) and we, the studio as CSO (Chief Success Officer, bringing with our team everything else you’ll need). 

Our Studio’s fund will finance the first stages of the startup (up to series A) following market practices. We’ll work together to scale it until early acquisition or major external funding. 

What we are exploring right now is the importance of mental wellness and it became quite obvious during the pandemic, it’s moving far beyond the psychiatrist's couch. It’s a new ecosystem that sees individuals relying on a wider range of tools to combat modern-day issues such as burnout, loneliness and anxiety, on top of traditional medical frameworks available. The World Health Organization estimates that 25% of people will be affected by mental issues at some point in their lives, with roughly 450 million individuals currently struggling with such conditions. Unfortunately, nearly two-thirds of them never seek help from a wellness professional. The biggest barriers remain stigma, time, cost, and availability. Mental wellness tech will move into the mainstream as cultural norms continue to shift. Millennials’ embrace of convenient treatment, as well as interest in self-care, will transform how the industry behaves. The behavioral wellness software market is projected to reach $2.31 billion by 2022, growing 14.8% annually. We envision a world where technology takes care of people, helps them feel better and empowers them to become the person they want to be. Join us to build the next Mental Wellness Unicorn.
