We are thesis-driven high-conviction investors
We typically invest $100k-$500k from pre-seed to Series A rounds.
We are hands-on investors. From participating as core technical contributors to projects to running nodes, we will do everything needed to maximize the success of our portfolio companies.
We don’t lead rounds. We invest alongside qualified lead investors and partner with them on tech, security, token economics, and PR.
If you are thinking about building in Move, we want to know about it.
