As we pass through Crypto Spring it’s time for Base Camp to support the next 11 companies in our cohort running January – May 2021 we’re kicking off with a number of firsts. Our first investment going to a team on the African continent, our first Outlier Ventures spin-out in Base Camp, and, unusually for an accelerator, an investment into a startup studio. 

Drawing from our thesis our cohort expands the horizons of DeFi, NFTs, the Metaverse – all tied together by a new data economy. 

We’re excited for these teams to join us through our five month program working with them on everything from token design to scaling their teams. Getting involved not just with the Outlier team but also out 150 strong mentor group comprised of the best minds in Web3 from across the world. 

Check out the teams below and make sure to  follow the progress of our whole portfolio and the Outlier Ventures team’s Web3 musings on Twitter, LinkedIn and through our newsletter.
