Web3 Incubation & Acceleration

We started as a consulting firm in 2017 and quickly became a leader. We then pivoted to Marketing, then in 2020-21 we merged with WeAreGrowthHackers.com to expand from marketing to Growth Hacking, and the result was well above our wildest expectations.

In 2021-22 we expanded to investing heavily in the space and started incubating and accelerating.

PRIVATE FUNDRAISING

We’ve built a strong reputation and partnerships with all the top VCs and funds in the space. We’ve gained their respect and are known to only bring the best deals to the table, meaning we heavily vet projects before accepting to introduce them to any investors.

GROWTH HACKING CONSULTING & MARKETING

We are the ONLY growth hackers in the space, and one of the best marketers. We have years to prove it and multiple case studies to show for it. We hire the best and obsess over the reputation of our clients and our portfolio companies.

FULL SERVICE TOKEN OFFERING

We launched ICOs in 2017, STOs in 2018, IEOs in 2020 and now IDOs, IEOs and NFT Projects. We have multiple case studies, and our reputation means any project we get behind will gain from our credibility. We are therefore obliged to heavily vet a project before deciding to have our name as a backer, to us reputation is everything, and we will work with you for as long as it takes to ensure you are successful, well after the launch of the token.
