Any Base Camp program is designed to nurture teams whose business potential best leverages the program’s protocol and design strengths and also aligns with Outlier Ventures’ Metaverse OS Thesis. Cohorts are generally selected through the lens of growing the protocol ecosystem across various layers such as: NFTs & Gaming, DeFi, Infrastructure, Services, and Middleware.

Participating startups will gain exposure to both Outlier Ventures’ and the protocol’s ecosystems, offering an unparalleled opportunity for founders to scale their technology and grow their business.

The Base Camp Accelerator is currently planned to be a fully remote and virtual program. There may be the opportunity for in-person summits in London or other European locations once the pandemic situation improves. We have so far invested in companies from Australia, Brazil, USA, Canada, Philippines, Nigeria, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Poland, UK, Switzerland.

We are focused on building out our vision of what is necessary for Web 3.0 to be successful – the Open Metaverse thesis. We are already supporting projects across the areas of NFTs & Gaming, DeFi, Infrastructure, Middleware, and Services. Each program starts with an announcement on our , which outlines specific use cases we would like to see and helps shape our investment thesis for that cohort.

Outlier Ventures is a venture platform designed to support decentralised projects to design, build, and scale at every stage of their development.

We provide early-stage funding, as well as providing support via relationships, introductions, and access to specialists from across the venture platform. We have incubated and supported leading Web 3.0 teams, and can bring a powerhouse of support to ventures building Web 3.0 infrastructure.

Each Base Camp program will be 12 weeks long.

This is a foundational product development accelerator for decentralised technology startups. We help you establish momentum and gain traction by learning and applying the foundational technology concepts leveraging Web 3.0.

We will organize educational group sessions and schedule 1-2-1 tailored meetings with our niche experts and expansive mentor network to support you across all dimensions of early-stage company formation. We help with your business strategy, token design and tokenomics, legal framework, technical support, branding and position, community building, marketing, and communication, as well as help you with that vital initial fundraising, establishing strategic partnerships, and building your foundational support network.
