The Problem

  • Investors want a more efficient way to source and invest in companies that serve their interests, whether they be industry-specific or defined by some other characteristic.
  • Entrepreneurs struggle to source capital and often face investors with unintentional bias or lack of knowledge about their specific solution.
  • Innovators should be rewarded for transparency and execution and those supporting innovation with their capital should be able to do so in a risk-managed way.

Why Entrepreneurs Care

  • Funding

    Blockchain startup CEOs now have a defined, transparent path to funding and no longer have to pitch. Instead, they’ll complete an online application.

  • Time

    With a clear path to funding, entrepreneurs can dedicate more time to building their business and fostering relationships with those that care about their success rather than spend an exorbitant amount of time trying to entice investors.

  • Access

    Entrepreneurs should be visible to investors that care about the breakthrough technology they are creating. The Fund and its advisors can provide companies with best-in-class tools and hands-on mentoring so long as the companies maintain a commitment to transparency.
