Blockchain Founders Group invests in Blockrocket, an accelerator for early-stage blockchain startups
We are delighted to announce Blockchain Founders Group’s investment in BLOCKROCKET, a startup that launched in Germany in early 2019 by a group of high-net-worth individuals from the Fintech space with the aim to help other startups, corporates, and investors working with blockchain technology. Some of the investments in the BLOCKROCKET portfolio include: i) Arkane Network, who provides wallet solutions, and solutions for non-fungible tokens (NFTs), ii) Trality, a platform for anyone to create and invest through trading bots which trade crypto assets in an automated way, iii) BREACH, aiming to insure the loss of crypto assets due to cryptocurrency exchange hacks, and finally iv) License.Rocks, a blockchain-powered approach to create, track, manage and trade software licenses in a transparent, secure and automated manner.
Based in Liechtenstein, Blockchain Founders Group is a company builder and venture capital provider that propels the incubation and acceleration of business models based on blockchain technology. Thus, they help turn blockchain ideas into real companies. As BLOCKROCKET also specializes in accelerating blockchain startups, Blockchain Founders Groups investment is ultimately helping to enhance the startup ecosystem by guiding them to take advantage of the distributed ledger technology.
BLOCKROCKET (www.blockrocket.io) is an accelerator program and investor for early-stage blockchain startups that was launched in early 2019 by a group of high-net-worth individuals from the Fintech space in Germany. They offer an exclusive ecosystem to help startups, corporates, and investors to leverage the potential of blockchain technology.
Startups have to go through a multi-stage selection process (4–6 weeks), before the final decision on whether they will make an investment proposal (up to 250,000 EUR investment tickets). BLOCKROCKET supports startups that participate in the program for up to 24 months.
Investment benefits and opportunities
The advantages and potentials of blockchain technology are becoming increasingly apparent to numerous people from diverse business industries. Enhanced security, increased transparency, automation, and efficiency are just few of the many benefits that the distributed ledger technology offers. As such, entities such as BLOCKROCKET which provide the necessary funds and access to the relevant information and network are crucial in improving the efficiency and growth of the startup ecosystem. That is, by enabling startups, corporates, and investors to properly leverage the potential of blockchain technology, serious opportunity costs and efforts can be avoided.
As a company builder, BFG shares BLOCKROCKET’s vision that blockchain technology-based startups and companies have high potential. BFG can already see that BLOCKROCKET has already reached many milestones since their initial launch with their impressive track record. They also believe in the team at BLOCKROCKET as they have already been working together for several years. However, BFG is aware that bringing this vision to life requires various efforts from financial to social, which it can provide through its access to a wide deal funnel from their academic research, investor base, venture capital, and entrepreneurial network.
Thus, BFG is looking forward to enhancing BLOCKROCKET’s efforts through this investment and creating a more efficient and stable blockchain technology-based startup industry.
We are a Liechtenstein-based company builder and venture capital investor. We believe that blockchain is the biggest investment opportunity over the next decades. Our DNA is composed of academic and regulatory drivers of the blockchain economy as well as ambitious entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.
As company builders, we turn blockchain ideas into companies after having vetted them thoroughly with our entrepreneurs in residence and advisors.
As venture capital investors, we finance founder teams in the pre-seed/seed stage in the traditional venture capital way coupled with our understanding and active commitment as co-founders.
Our location in Liechtenstein allows us to take advantage of the industry-leading Blockchain Act, which we believe will inspire European-wide legislation in the coming years.
