ABOUT

We are a team of venture investors and entrepreneurs with diverse backgrounds based out of Berlin, New York, Boston and Munich complemented by a global network of innovators.

We perceive ourselves as a startup company, 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 and doesn't take more than 10 days from initial call to an investment decision. "Which school did you go to?", "You are too early." or "Who else is investing?" are sentences you won't hear from us.

We initially invest between $500k and $1.5M of inception capital across equity and cryptographic assets of all sorts. We cover European markets first but have a global mandate.
