The Partners love of being involved in the growth and nurturing of private company investments led to the creation of an incubator. Initially there was no sector focus; in 1999 some sectors took the lead focus. These included financial services and well-being.

Sturgeon Ventures is the most established Regulatory Incubator known by some as a Regulated Umbrella or Hosting Platform or Regulated Hosting firm.

Sturgeon Ventures has incubated people and firms since 1999.

Sturgeon Ventures has been a family office wealth advisor since 1998.

Incubation allows a firm to build a track record, competency and business process whilst achieving critical mass.

A Sturgeon’s egg is the size of a mustard seed. With the right nurturing it will hatch, grow to more than fifteen feet long, weigh over a ton and live for at least two hundred years.
