Every year Outlier Ventures, the Metaverse Accelerator, invites a handpicked group of leading founders, investors, collectors, culture makers and alumni to join their exclusive investment partnership established in 2014.
Recognised for their outsized contribution to the Open Metaverse, dubbed the ‘outliers’, this new intake of members buy into the Outlier Ventures Partnership to unlock the ability to co-invest and partner with its growing portfolio and mentor the 100+ startups that go through the accelerator each year which has quickly established itself as the ‘Y Combinator for The Metaverse’.
New members represent some of the most influential and innovative figures across Web 3, entertainment, music and consumer brands in the Metaverse.
‘’To accelerate the Open Metaverse you need the best people from across Finance, Culture and Technology to bring the knowledge, reach and capital to make this happen. This intake was a first step to broaden our community and fire a warning shot to Facebook’s Meta. This was our largest single new member intake to date but we will be aggressively adding to our people and financial firepower, and in particular looking to improve the diversity required to reach billions of users globally.’’
- Jamie Burke, CEO of Outlier Ventures
With this latest member intake, Outlier Ventures is driving the convergence of culture, tech and finance in a way that empowers creators and consumers alike while simultaneously introducing new business models that both disrupt and transform Hollywood, Wall Street and Silicon Valley all at once.
