About Us

MBA Fakhro Group is a global innovation focused network of six inter-dependent regional startup studios. Over 100 businesses have been founded (or are in the pipeline to be) under these six studios. According to Wikipedia, a “Startup studio, also known as a startup factory, or a startup foundry, or a venture builder, is a studio-like company that aims at building several companies in succession. This style of business building is referred to as parallel entrepreneurship.”

Our business philosophy revolves around the founding and then growing of great businesses that utilize technological innovations to solve problems. If a business that we found shows promise, then we recruit a great team and invest a maximum of 250,000 US Dollars in that business. We then either 1) Bring on outside investors through Venture Capital and subsequently (circumstances permitting) an Initial Public Offerings, 2) Sell the business, 3) Keep it wholly owned, if it does not require a capital increase and serves a strategic long-term purpose, or 4) Shut it down, if we feel we have explored all options but are unable to make it work.

We found and then grow businesses across the globe through our six startup studios located in the following places: 1) Silicon Valley (covering the North America & South America market), 2) Cambridge, England (covering the United Kingdom & European Union market), 3) Kerala, India (covering the South Asia market), 4) Singapore (covering the markets of South East Asia, CIS, Russia, Australia, and Japan), 5) Mauritius (covering the Africa market), and 6) Bahrain (covering the Middle East market).

The nature of our businesses means that we hold stakes in exciting companies across the world. These companies are united in their “DNA” at the time that we “create” them, by their ideas towards business success. They are united by the underlying belief (and basic economic principle) that success in business is achieved only if it results in improving the lives of customers, by offering them superior long-term value, thereby maximizing their utility.

MBA Fakhro Group holds, at its essence, a sense of its commitment to give back to the community by investing a part of its profits towards improving the lives of the people of the world.
