About CV VC

In 1989, the World Wide Web was invented in Geneva. However, there is currently no Swiss-based Internet company on a similar global scale. 30 years later, Switzerland is again at the core of technology with the potential to boost growth over the decades: blockchain.

 

CV VC (Crypto Valley Venture Capital) is an investment company that invests in young companies (start-ups). CV VC differs from other investors in two ways: firstly, the company operates an additional operational business, i.e. its own ecosystem of co-working spaces, consulting, and events, which is run under the CV Labs brand. On the other hand, CV VC invests exclusively in companies that develop products and services based on blockchain technology.

 

CV VC is an early-stage venture capital investor with a focus on startups that build on blockchain technology. In addition to the venture capital investments, we operate an ecosystem business under the CV Labs brand, consisting of workspaces, advisory, and events.  

 

 

THE THIRD TECHNOLOGICAL WAVE

 

We believe that the next, third wave of big tech companies will be driven by catalyst technologies like blockchain, alongside AI, machine learning, automation, and well as IoT.

 

These companies will be led by a new founder generation with a new mindset: Founders around the world are attracted to technologies like blockchain, driven by the need for decentralization, transparency, and accountability.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY

 

Blockchain technology has the potential to impact many industries significantly and we believe that the next, third wave of big tech companies will be driven by catalyst technologies like blockchain, alongside AI, machine learning, automation, and well as IoT. These companies will be led by a new founder generation with a new mindset: Founders around the world are attracted to technologies like blockchain, driven by the need for decentralization, transparency, and accountability.

 

Despite its USD 3 trillion market potential, the technology is still young. CV VC considers the current dynamics in the industry as an attractive opportunity to create long-term value for investors by executing a diversified and systematic strategy of early-stage investing. Our investment focus is on applications built with blockchain. We believe the application layer to provide the most attractive long-term growth potential VC investments, whereas the infrastructure layer («the rails») will become commoditized in order to achieve mass adoption.

 

 

SIX VERTICALS WITH EXPONENTIAL GROWTH POTENTIAL

 

Further, the current social and economic environment has led to a digitization push that will cause certain industries to grow disproportionately in the future, we call this Technology for Tomorrow, in short T4T. We identified the following six verticals where we believe that digitalization will grow exponentially and hence create the biggest opportunities from an investment perspective:

FINANCE & INVESTING


Based on this, our strategy is to find the best startups that build applications at the intersection of those six T4T verticals and the blockchain technology and invest in the most attractive use cases, across industries, on a global basis, to achieve such a diversified portfolio with regards to industries, geographies and weighting of the underlying portfolio companies, thereby minimizing any cluster risks and maximizing returns for investors.
