Seedstars and Cardashift team up for impact-driven blockchain partnership
The team-up between Seedstars, a Swiss-based investment firm that supports and invests in startups in emerging markets, and Cardashift, a community-run launchpad that raises funds, builds and accelerates startups that are solving social and environmental issues, comes as a timely collaboration to support innovation in the blockchain space.
Vincent Katchavenda, co-founder of Cardashift: “We are excited to begin a partnership with SeedStars and create synergies to tackle real-world challenges using web3 applications. Seedstars expertise in emerging markets would be key to resolving social and environmental issues, and supporting promising changemakers.”
Sharing the same values and targeting the same people, the partnership will help boost their striking power and strengthen the ecosystem that is established. The collaboration will focus on the following:
- The sourcing of projects: impactful projects could be suggested by SeedStars experts' network
- Impact assessment & measurement: impact knowledge will be shared between the two organizations and workshops will be organized
- The funding value chain: the funding sessions will be introduced by Cardashift through the IDOs and might be completed by Seedstars
