NGC Ventures - About

NGC Ventures has successfully raised three (3) funds and distributed them across foundational niches of the crypto industry. 

  • The first one is aimed at backing various blockchain infrastructure projects. 
  • The second fund is dedicated to fostering the NEO Smart Economy ecosystem.
  • And the last one - NEO Global Capital, operates as a separate entity and remains deeply connected to the growth of the NEO coin with strategic investments in projects that align with and enhance NEO's infrastructure. 

You can learn more about this close cooperation with the NEO's ecosystem in the report provided here, and in some rare articles about the NEO ecosystem release, and NGC fund portfolio governance.

A highly important part of the fund`s activity is a thorough market analysis, because the successful funding approach revolves around deep daily research aimed at detection of revolutionary Web 3.0 projects among the hundreds of others. Thus, the fund actively allocates substantial resources through grants and investments to support research teams in esteemed academic institutions such as the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technology University, and UC Berkeley.

NGC Ventures also extends its investments into other Web 3.0-focused funds that align with its investment philosophy. This strategic approach broadens the horizons of the portfolio companies, providing them with an extensive network of resources and connections within the industry. Among this type of NGC Ventures’ investments, there are such notable funds as Griffin Gaming Fund, Bitkraft, Republic Capital, Metaversal, Figment Capital, Collab+Currency, Symbolic Capital, WWG Ventures, Dispersion Capital, Geekcartel, Impossible Finance, 6th Man Ventures, Blockchain Founders Fund, Sanctor Capital, Shima Capital, Finance Ventures, Borderless Capital, Bonfire Union, and Longhash Ventures.
