CV VC unveils African Blockchain Early-Stage Fund

CV VC has announced the launch of its African Blockchain Early-Stage Fund and published the inaugural African Blockchain Report.

While it is a fact that African nations are amongst the fastest crypto adopters globally, the African Blockchain Report moves past crypto. It looks at the underlying revolutionary blockchain movement, set to enable Africa to transact and interact for the well-being of its people and economies. It delivers a succinct analysis of regulation, industry, and the stakeholders who are leading the transformations.

“As a Swiss headquartered company, CV VC holds great value in precision and knowledge sharing as drivers of innovation. Our objective with the African Blockchain Report is to share a data-driven account of blockchain in Africa and begin an annual collation of benchmarkable venture data and solidly referenced African insights. We are also very proud to give an assessment of the regulatory landscape and a magnetic introduction to some of the greatest blockchain minds on the continent. We are already active in Africa, have invested in 12 startups, and are very excited about the launch of an African Blockchain Early-Stage Fund”. Gideon Greaves, CV VC Africa

Commenting, Véronique Haller, The Chargée d’affaires, Embassy of Switzerland to South Africa, said “Blockchain has the potential to be a catalyst for positive change and shape the future of our continent. With data in and around blockchain in Africa still scarce, the first Africa Blockchain Report will be an important milestone. And let’s bet that Africa will soon be home to its first blockchain Unicorn!”
