Our vision for Filecoin in the next 12 months

Strong Data Foundation: Humanity needs a decentralized, efficient and robust foundation on which to build the next generation of applications and store their information. Filecoin is at the forefront of representing that data storage foundation layer.

An ecosystem kicking off now: With the introduction of Filecoin Virtual Machine and enablement of compute-over-data now is when the ecosystem can really flourish and let new builders build and interact with the core layer of Filecoin.

Infrastructure companies are enablers: We believe that investing in founders that are building key infrastructural elements that serve as backbone of web3 will drastically accelerate other developers building the application layer and therefore end users adoption

Outlier Ventures brings its unparalleled deep knowledge and network to support startups to design, build and launch industry defining Web3 solutions

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.
