• Web 3.0, the next phase of The Web, is here...
  • a shift from human centric mediation...
  • to decentralised autonomous markets
  • where major tech trends converge
  • welcome to the first Web 3.0 venture platform

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

Creating

Outlier Ventures Ltd is the research & commercial arm to the venture platform which tracks over 30 blockchain use cases at any one time on behalf of Outlier Capital LLP.

It serves as an incubator & accelerator engaging venture partners including entrepreneurs, startups & corporate partners to qualify problem-solution fit, build product market fit and scale companies.

Building & Supporting

Block Stars is a dedicated blockchain centre of excellence headed out of Amsterdam that has been building blockchain applications since 2014.

Based on lateral learnings and deep relationships with key vendors we provide all ventures with rapid product development as well as interim blockchain CTOs if required. Ventures get ongoing access to our blockchain R&D which explores the technology in combination with fields like cyber security and machine learning.

Financing

Blockchain Angels is a dedicated market intelligence and events platform to educate and connect up investor networks including angels 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 global blockchain start-up scene speaking with hundreds of companies every month and allows us to finance a startup all the way to Series A and beyond.
