Round13 Introduces Fund To Invest In Blockchain, Digital Asset Market – Crowdfund Insider – Crowdfund Insider

By
Round13, a Canadian VC firm with approximately $700 million in assets under management, has introduced a “dedicated” fund to invest in the emerging blockchain and digital asset market.
As noted in an update shared with CI, the crypto native fund has “raised US$70 million of an initial target of US$100 million.”
The lead investor is “a major Canadian pension fund, with additional participation from institutions, high-net-worth individuals, family offices, and members of the Round13 team.”
The fund is also partnered “with Satstreet, one of Canada’s fastest growing digital investment firms with a deep network of relationships in the crypto universe.”
The fund seeks projects “with highly technical teams solving problems around scalability and interoperability, and those building top tier applications on these new rails – themes that will play a fundamental role in building the infrastructure for the successful deployment and mass adoption of Web3 projects.”
The fund has “invested in several projects to date alongside other top tier global investors in the space.”
Investments have been “made in UK-based Improbable Worlds, US-based Trust Machines and Ibex, and Canadian-based Chainsafe and Red Jar Digital Infrastructure (RJDI).”
The new Round13 fund “is operated by two veterans in the blockchain and digital asset market, with each bringing a unique set of skills and operational ability to the fund.”
Managing Partner Satraj Bambra “is a software engineer who has built and sold two companies and was an early developer in the space.”
He was most recently “co-founder and CEO of BlockEQ, a mobile native wallet and decentralized exchange built on Stellar’s blockchain.”
Managing Partner Khaled Verjee is “a lawyer and investment banker by trade, and has been an early investor and advisor to several Blockchain startups since 2015.”
Bambra stated:
“I’ve been immersed in this space for several years but have not seen as much interest in the emerging blockchain and digital asset market as we are seeing today. We are seeing a particularly encouraging and rapidly growing trend of new teams joining and building blockchain applications and protocols. This has historically been the strongest signal of adoption and growth. I truly believe we are just getting started and the best is yet to come.”
Verjee added:
“It’s very encouraging that a pension fund and traditionally conservative family offices are actively investing in our fund and looking to capitalize on the tremendous opportunities in the market. And while this fund will invest globally, we are uniquely positioned in Canada to invest in and support the robust and growing number of developers building in the space.”
The new Round13 fund is “a member of the Web3 Council of Canada and anticipates playing an important role in the development of a strong regulatory framework.”
As noted in the update, Round13 Capital is “a Toronto-based venture capital firm that invests in high growth technology businesses.”
The firm is “managed by experienced investors and operators and uses a disciplined investment approach to identify exceptional entrepreneurs committed to opportunities and companies with market leadership potential.”
Round13 typically “provides ‘hands-on’ management assistance to its portfolio companies to unlock strategic and financial value.”
