The DAO Fund targets Seed to Series A projects that are actively building in the digital asset ecosystem. Average initial tickets are USD 500,000 – USD 3 million per company. It has a wide geographical focus, looking at deals across Europe, Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Australia. A broad set of sectors are targeted ranging from DeFi, Layer 2s, NFTs/Metaverse applications to Web3 infrastructure.
The fund aims to achieve significant returns through capital appreciation of its equity investments in early-stage technology companies. Due to the development speed of the digital asset space, exit timelines for blockchain companies are expected to be shorter than in traditional industries.
Risk mitigation measures are taken, such as clear investment boundaries and guidelines, multiple review processes and active support of the companies post-investment.
