The Future Is Stateless
Stateless Ventures is an early stage crypto asset investment firm. We back 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. We are witnessing a Cambrian explosion of innovation in financial technology and web architecture. The future web will be more decentralized, free from trusted 3rd parties and monopoly tech giants.
We believe the internet should be more egalitarian. By investing in startups and crypto protocols, we intend to bring about that change.
