Ascent Token Launch

Ascent is the leading token launch advisory service offered for projects looking to maximize the success of their token economy and network.

Outlier Ventures are proud to operate as the largest Web3 accelerator

Our Ascent program focuses on the final stretch of a token launch, operationalizing requirements, and supporting teams with every aspect of successful token distribution. We have advised, invested in, and accelerated 180+ projects in Web3 over the past 8 years, and our strong strategic partnerships with many of the key players in the ecosystem are unparalleled.

How do we work

We work in a fully bespoke way, all advice, support, and expertise is based on the specific roadmap of a team. Selected projects work with a dedicated program team and have access to our in-house network of 100+ Web 3 experts in legal, tech, token design, marketing, and more. 

We have a co-investor network of over 1000 partners from VCs to syndicates, market makers, liquidity providers, and pools across North America, Europe, and Asia. 

Our rigorous readiness assessment shortcuts the ability of our trusted partners to engage with teams reducing their due diligence and providing a powerful signal to the market. Warm introductions to our extensive network can activate key partners and new business leads.  

Tailored support comes at each stage of your token development, in the critical run-up to going live, post-launch, and in market, through a personalised calendar of structured weekly calls, workshops, documents, and discussions to suit your project needs.
