BlockNation

BlockNation is a company that offers early stage investment and helps companies form teams. They focus on blockchain, cryptography and AI.

BlockNation is a venture capital firm founded by Marc Rowan and Raphael Ouzan. They invest early, they like to move quickly, speak frankly, and help bridge frontier technology with the older world of finance and business.



They bet on early stage teams, at the convergence of emerging technologies -- particularly blockchains, next-gen cryptography, and machine learning -- to build a more efficient, secure, and inclusive world.



Despite decades of cyber-security tech, data breaches happen daily. Unlike every other industry, innovation in the financial sector is linear at best and unavailable to most. They believe this is will change as financial institutions, companies and consumers feel the need for new solutions. Chief among them, building financial services to be more efficient, accessible and inclusive, and building a digital world we can trust.

Investment

BlockNation's investments include Dharma Labs, Kadena, Reserve, Tagomi, TrustToken, Offchain Labs, TabooKey, ZenGo, Tectonic and Urbit.
