Join Our Base Camp Accelerator

Building a startup is hard business. That is why 90% of them fail. Many inspite of finding product market fit, traction and funding. How organisations are supported during their early days have substantial implications on how they evolve. Here at Outlier Ventures, we believe the next generation of companies can be handpicked and provided assistance in growing sustainably. That investing in teams during the early stages of their growth can lead to beautiful results. We are recruiting, financing and providing the perfect launch pad for pre-seed projects. Providing incubation space, hub services, and partnering with you on-site.  More on the initiative in today's newsletter. 

What Is Basecamp?

Leveraging the combined resources of our tried and tested venture platform of experts, mentors and ecosystem we will add measurable value where each team needs it most. This isn’t a cookie-cutter program, but a bespoke solution for accelerating the billion dollar token networks and transformational web 3.0 businesses of tomorrow.  You will complete this program with clarity on your pitch, positioning, and have developed traction in your product to be in the best possible shape to secure your first seed round of funding. This is a unique opportunity to get inside access to the industry and build your venture with the leading minds of web 3.0. The immediate benefits for startups working with us would be 

  • 3 month accelerator program based in London
  • £35k immediate funding for early stage projects
  • Up to £200k total funding available per team
  • Office space, legal, accounting and back-office support
  • World-beating ecosystem of investment, enterprise and tech partners

What Are We Looking For?
We are looking for driven, humble, empathetic and passionate founders who want to build a more equitable data economy. You will likely be a small team with both technical and business expertise. You may have raised a small amount of money before, and are looking for your next step to accelerate your proposition, and get it in front of customers and the wider industry. We are particularly interested in projects that fit our vision of the future web: The Convergence Stack. Spanning hardware, software, networking and applications, the stack underpins a private, secure, and accessible digital infrastructure. We believe these technologies are vital in ensuring the benefits of technologies like the IoT and AI are shared equitably beyond just a few platform monopolies. We see the opportunity of the Convergence Stack to decentralise these platforms and unbundle cloud services. We want to make sure that this web is designed and built by people with diverse backgrounds and experiences to ensure the future web is inclusive and works for all.

Key Terms
The core to the terms are very simple. We will provide you up to £200,000 in total investment, with £35,000 in immediate investment, plus office space, back-office and admin support, a product development program and access to the industry’s best mentors and ecosystem. In exchange for this we ask for 6% of equity, and 6% of any future token supply, and the option to be the first money in to any subsequent fundraising round.

What The Team Is Reading
The top 5 tech companies now have a market cap of ~$4T, which makes them about 1/7 of the value of the US stock market. I would guess all of tech is probably close to 25% now. Software eating the world
