Our Investment Approach

It doesn’t matter whether it is with crypto currencies, initial coin offerings (ICOs), a new protocol or a decentralized application (DApp). As soon as you start thinking about the use of blockchain, you start to question the status quo, and start to increase efficiency across the board. Our commitment is to finding the most promising entrepreneurs with game-changing ideas in the blockchain space.


To achieve this, we take a three-pillared approach to investment targets:

  • Seed investments (coupled with a three-month incubator program)
  • Pre-ICO investments
  • Post-ICO-investments


We are technology and industry agnostic. Amongst other factors, we look into team diversity and ecosystem quality, execution power, individual openness and the amount of each player’s ‘skin in the game’. 

Starting with our first Hub in Zug, founders from all over the world can apply for a three-month incubation program in the heart of Crypto Valley.


The incubation program is based on six pillars:

  • Vision and business model, white paper
  • Teambuilding and leadership in a decentralized world
  • Technology
  • Communications, marketing, media and pitch training
  • Legal and compliance
  • Token design, token economics and token sale


Per batch, we invest $125K in in exchange for equity or tokens in each participating startup. Participants will learn from high-level mentors, blockchain pioneers, successful entrepreneurs and visionaries of the crypto and blockchain world. At CV Labs, successful entrepreneurs train and mentor entrepreneurs of the future.
