Why Hobby Ventures?

We are a group of former founders hailing from diverse industries, well aware that no startup achieves perfection from the outset.
Through our personal experiences, we have traversed the various stages of startup development, accumulating invaluable insights encompassing ideation, market validation, MVP creation, and capital acquisition.

We support software developments.

Having personally encountered the frustrations associated with outsourcing software development overseas, only to find ourselves entangled in a nightmarish scenario, we empathize deeply with fellow founders.

At Hobby Company, our primary objective is to assist you in constructing your product, freeing you to concentrate wholeheartedly on advancing your business endeavors.
