approach to investing
in next generation
Elixir Capital is a venture capital firm backing early-stage founders building the internet of tomorrow, today.
We back founders pushing the boundaries of open-source software and decentralised technology. We partner closely with select protocols to facilitate building the right primitives, support scalability and promote network growth. We are value-add, long-term investors and are fully engaged with building out the next generation of digital economies and the open internet.
Once in a generation, major technological advancements emerge with the potential to reshape our world. We are now entering a new era of the internet, commonly called Web3, which is driven by community-led initiatives, open-source collaboration and decentralised infrastructure. It is our belief that this will have profound, long-lasting effects on our increasingly digital world.
What we do
Supporting founders with that added bit of magic.
We leverage both Web3-native and traditional VC approaches to support global founders from Pre-Seed to Series A. We seek out founders who are constantly curious, mission-aligned and possess a strong commitment to integrity. In line with our thesis, we invest in sectors that facilitate an open decentralised internet, data sovereignty and improved usability & utility throughout the Web3 stack.OUR APPROACH
Matching capital with expertise.
Building something that drives adoption of Web3 across the stack? We go beyond money to create a powerful impact for the startups we back through engagements with our advisor team.
Who we are
Legal & Compliance
Getting set up properly and addressing the changing global landscape of digital asset regulation is, under the hood, one of the most important bits of any startup.
Web3 UX is pretty terrible and it doesn’t need to be. Our UX and design consultants have got you covered.
Integral to web3. How does your token accrue value? What mechanisms are right for you? Do you even need a token? From design to implementation our team can advise.
Guidance and implementing not only the right tech stack, but ongoing support to ensure it's documented and audited through select partners or advisors.
Whether it’s this round, your next round, a token launch, equity raise or NFT drop. We want to make sure you’re properly capitalised to achieve your potential.
Talent & People
Startups and communities aren’t just in it for the tech - it’s about the people. Whether it's hiring, scaling or sustainably building your community and culture, we know the right people
Helping you set the foundations for your community, to implementing collective decision making frameworks in a realistic, compliant and effective way.
Our ‘unbundled’ accelerator approach involves breaking down the complex problems operators, hackers, builders and tinkerers face on a daily basis into small addressable elements. We do this by facilitating meaningful and impactful engagements with our dedicated advisor network of 20+ people, all of which is included in our investment.
There is no one size fits all, and certainly no Web2 playbook to slot in here as Web3 upends numerous conventional approaches and thinking on product design, business models, GTM strategy and user acquisition. These elements cant simply be replicated from Web2 textbooks or venture programs.
Our Web3 specific, value-add engagements will look different for each team as company specific challenges require custom approaches.What you can be sure of however is our unwavering commitment and support. With the help of our powerful, purpose-built ecosystem, whatever you’re building will benefit as a result as we help drive adoption and utility throughout the stack.
A Web3 native team dedicated to helping founders.
We're in it for the long haul.
Our team comprises former founders, operators, researchers and investors powered by a technical, collaborative approach to support teams from an early stage.
