Olaf Hannemann, Co-Founder of CV VC, states:
“A strategic partnership in a dynamic region such as Latin America is highly attractive for us. We have made our first startup investment in Brasil through our second incubation program late last year and see a good inflow of ideas from the region, and more broadly, have been amazed by the entrepreneurial spirit coming from this market. Identifying attractive blockchain technology startups in the region early and subsequently helping them internationalize effectively will be a key focus as part of this strategic alliance.”
Helena Suarez Margarido, Co-founder CV Latam, states:
“We’re in the early days of Blockchain technology yet and important changes that have been slowly and quietly idealized by enthusiasts in the past years have now become imminent. Our partnership will allow to effectively move towards building a global network focused on providing stakeholders of this market with the necessary incentives and environment for creating blockchain solutions ”
Nicolai Reinbold, Ecosystem & Incubation Manager CV Labs, adds:
“Developing a broad regional ecosystem jointly with local experts fully fits with our expansion strategy of CV Labs, where we seek to connect founders, investors, industry, academics and other stakeholders across the blockchain universe”
