At our core we are a tightly knit team of venture investors, entrepreneurs and researchers with diverse backgrounds working from Boston, New York, Berlin and Munich. We are complemented by a global network of innovators in technology, art, science and business
We perceive ourselves as a networked startup ecosystem, not an established venture fund. We incentivise our founders and community through ownership in the fund. We take risks and experiment. We run nodes, govern crypto networks, write code and scale DAOs.
Our investment process is radically transparent. “Which school did you go to?”, “You are too early?” or “Who else is investing?” are sentences you won’t hear from us.
We invest first-checks up to $1.5M of inception capital across equity and cryptographic assets of all sorts, globally.
