    Investing in World Changing Founders Building the Future

  • The Future Is Stateless

    Stateless Ventures is a full stack venture firm investing across all stages of the startup life cycle. Our primary focus is on the intersection of AI, crypto and web3. With a family of funds including a liquid fund, venture fund and opportunistic SPVs, we cover the full range of venture investing opportunities. We invest from pre seed, seed and series A through late stage growth rounds. We partner with founders from the very beginning and help them navigate the life cycle of a startup.

     

    We look for startups with highly asymmetric risk reward potential. Often, these are good ideas that start out looking like bad ideas. Identifying the crossover between what the smartest people are working on during nights/weekends and where the world is going.

     

    The Stateless investment team has deployed over 250m across liquid vehicles, venture and growth SPVs.

     

    We believe the future is stateless and invest in protocols and companies bringing about that change.
