Meet the next 33 teams building in the Metaverse!


Outlier Ventures is proud to present the 33 teams that we are accelerating this season! The teams are split across 4 Base Camp accelerator programs in partnership with FARFETCH, The HBAR Foundation, Protocol Labs and Polkadot. We have hand selected the best start-ups from over 1000 applications, to accelerate the teams that are shaping the future of the Open Metaverse OS.
As we have previously stated, we view the recent downturn in the Web3 market as an opportunity for builders to focus their efforts on stress-testing and building resilient projects that can withstand future cycles. In response to the bear market, we continue to accelerate even more founders with the launch of several Base Camp cohorts in parallel.

Outlier Ventures’ Base Camp is a 12-week accelerator program where cohort participants are provided with tailored support to refine business strategy, establish and solidify product-market fit, stimulate community growth, define token design, amongst other areas. Each team will also gain unfettered access to Outlier Ventures’ resources and world-class mentors to support fundraising and product development efforts.

Recent market events have only highlighted the importance of decentralizing our financial system. The second iteration of our De-Fi Base Camp runs in partnership with New Order DAO and focuses on teams building the next frontier of decentralized financial products and platforms. Our base camp is focused on supporting the best teams driving this new decentralized economy.

We continue our partnership with The HBAR Foundation to launch seven more teams into the Metaverse this quarter and build in the Hedera ecosystem. We have witnessed the ecosystem gain momentum with web2 and enterprise giants, and accordingly aim to further develop the infrastructure, services and platforms available in the space.

In partnership with Protocol labs we are launching another six teams through the IPFS Open Metaverse Base Camp, with teams covering the European region and Africa. The cohort is made up of teams that follow our vision to build a more open and interoperable Metaverse, leveraging IPFS, creating the backbone of the Open Metaverse

The fourth cohort to join us this quarter is the Polkadot Base Camp, in partnership with Polkadot. We have cherry-picked four teams that will enrich the Polkadot ecosystem through building on DAO tooling, payment infrastructure, ESG betterment and decentralized health systems!

In our very first collaboration with FARFETCH, Dream Assembly Base Camp will provide a cohort of the most promising Web3 startups in the luxury fashion and lifestyle sectors with a curated program of mentorship, networking and support in order to help drive the future of Web3 luxury commerce.

Please join us in celebrating the teams that have made it to our Base Camp accelerator!
