Europe's first venture builder dedicated to the 'invisible' application of blockchain technology to markets

Purpose

We co-develop blockchain startups with entrepreneurs, corporate venturing partners, consortia and accelerators.

Why? Because we believe blockchains are about networks, not platforms. Plugging in all stakeholders to reach 'network effect' ahead of the competition is critical to success.

As such we are actively building an ecosystem of partnerships to rapidly innovate and scale well funded startups with great teams of seasoned professionals.

Commercial vehicles

Outlier Capital LLP is a holding company & investment vehicle which takes a direct shareholding in any ventures proportionate to their stage of development and the investment required to move it through to an acceleration partner. Angels and funds invest directly into Outlier Ventures LLP and share proportionately in the success of portfolio ventures. The investment framework is directed by an Advisory Board comprised of seasoned partners.

Creating

Outlier Ventures Ltd is the venture building service company contracted by Outlier Ventures LLP to deliver ventures on budget and to plan through the partner ecosystem.

Each venture has a budget of £35k/ to £50k to be delivered through phases 1 to 4 with the LLP providing 50% fee for each venture up front and 50% on completion.

Building & Supporting

Block Stars Ltd is a European blockchain centre of excellence split between the UK and Netherlands that serves as the technical delivery vehicle for both the commercialisation and technical development of ventures both during and post-incubation.

It is contracted by Outlier Ventures Ltd or, at later stages, the portfolio company directly to deliver sprints of work to further the venture and is jointly owned by Outlier Ventures Ltd and CTO, Aron van Ammers.

Financing

Blockchain Angels Europe is an market intelligence and events platform to educate and connect up angel networks and early stage VCs to enable deal-flow not just for our own startups but the whole community.

This puts us right at the heart of the European blockchain start-up scene and gives us direct relationships with the people that can take a startup from Pre-Seed to Series A and beyond.

Partnerships models

We actively seek to co-develop all ventures through one or more of the below approaches

Sponsorship

We offer enterprise the opportunity to sponsor a proof-of-concept white-paper to feature in the thought-leadership with 'first right of refusal' to accept the resulting venture into an accelerator process

Joint Ventures

We work with entrepreneurs in both new/established startups or large enterprise in joint ventures to explore commercial opportunities in blockchain. The shareholding split dependent of the level of commitment from each side.

Consortia

We work with top consultancies or trade bodies to initiate vertical specific consortia to explore and develop proof-of-concept application to blockchain to sector wide problems or opportunities.
