What we are looking for

We are always on the lookout for ground-breaking blockchain projects to disrupt legacy systems. We want founders looking to turn business-as-usual into the never-before-seen. We want entrepreneurs who eat, sleep and breathe their startup. We want the ambitious, the revolutionary, and the avant-garde. We want the unicorns of innovation. Blockchain is our passion, show us yours.


We are committed to changing the world. And we think blockchain technology will play a massive part in that change. That is why we are bringing the sharpest minds and the brightest ideas together under one roof: CV Labs.


At CV Labs, the blockchain incubator, we bring the world’s most innovative thinkers and technologists together to use the most cutting-edge technologies of today. No matter what stage you are at, whether a first-time founder or a fast-growing startup, we have plenty to offer to help you thrive.

CV Labs Incubation program

Welcome to your hew home, Blockchain startup founders. In CV Labs´ 3-month hybrid Blockchain Incubation program, we equip founders with future-proof skills to test and expand their knowledge of technology and business.


From our rich experience in the startup space, we know how challenging it is to secure the next investment round and keep your dream alive. Furthermore, we are aware of the flexibility startups need to flourish and that´s why we´ve designed a dynamic hybrid program:


The program will kick off with a one-week Bootcamp in Zug where the startups will undergo a series of high-quality training and have the opportunity to expand their network and meet important players of the Crypto Valley. In the successive two months, the startups will remotely participate in weekly workshops and webinars which will give them the necessary know-how to graduate and attend the graduation events in Zug. To make it more exciting, we will connect you with a pool of over 100 entrepreneurial mentors from different backgrounds and jurisdictions.


By the end of the program, you will be armed to the teeth with an outstanding pitch, an operational product, a sound business strategy, and a broad network in the Blockchain space.

African blockchain startups, listen up!


We are looking to invest in 100 startups that have the potential to tackle the challenges of the African continent over the next four years. This is why we have recently opened an office in Cape Town.


Are you an African-based entrepreneur? Or is your startup idea tackling current challenges such as basic financial inclusion, reduction of cost of trust, etc.? Then sign up for our incubation program today! For more information, you can contact Gideon Greaves, CV VC's Managing Director Africa.
