CV VC is a next generation investment company with a focus on blockchain. The company will invest into all stages of crypto and blockchain development, including incubation and growth capital. In addition, CV VC operates its own ecosystem including advisory, coworking space, startup competitions, industry summits and has strong ties to Swiss politics and institutions.
After wave one (blockchain-enthusiasts in their twenties), wave two (business savvy private investors from the US and Asia) and wave three (corporates wanting to tap into the space), wave four has arrived in the Valley: ‘serious people, serious business and serious money’. This phase ushers in a new era of professionalization and high-quality projects. It is the start signal for Lakeside Partners to launch the extensive investment activities on a global scale, based out of Zug, Switzerland, in the heart of the Crypto Valley.
CV VC does not only invest in blockchain companies, it maintains its own ecosystem (events, advisory, coworking space) which increases the deal flow, expands the network and creates a basis for going global. CV VC invests across all stages of company growth. This offers possibilities for follow up investments. The company is based at the heart of the crypto valley in Zug, profiting from a clear regulatory framework and natural deal flow. Unlike other VCs, the company has a 100% focus on investments in the blockchain/crypto space and an experienced in-house advisory unit. Furthermore, the mentors of our incubation program are mostly from the startup world – with real startup experience.
CV VC is a private investment company. If CV VC will be open for other investors in the future remains to be decided.
There are several use cases for a token within the CV VC ecosystem and many of them are an option in the future, but not a necessary condition for the development of CV VC. The investment company is financed through private placements.
As a private company investing in startups, CV VC does not need an authorization by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA). In the event of a public placement or a token issue in the future, CV VC will fulfil all the relevant regulatory requirements and, if necessary, apply for FINMA authorization.
We invest in a very young industry. We want to accompany the startups during different stages of growth. With different pillars (early stage / pre-ICO / post-ICO) we also diversify the risks.
