Tribe Capital is a California-based VC firm that was founded by a trio of entrepreneurs and data scientists with investment background and prior experience at Social Capital: Arjun Sethi, Jonathan Hsu, and Ted Maidenberg.
The fund is highly respected in investment circles not only for its impressive portfolio built up in a fairly short time of activity but also for the fact that the fund has implemented a completely winning investment strategy in the falling cryptocurrency market. Only in the first protracted phase of the bear market, at the end of 2022, Tribe Capital has multiplied the value of its investments by five times.
For now, the company is extremely optimistic about the investment opportunities offered by crypto companies and is considering opening a branch in India.
Being extremely cooperative with early-stage teams, Tribe Capital offers a series of podcast episodes with founders, covering diverse subjects, highly important at the initial stages of a startup’s growth. The topics range from the art of team formation to discussions on the crucial role of trust within venture teams, the importance of partnership dynamics, and the phases involved in establishing a sustainable corporate culture.
The Tribe Capital’s portfolio contains infrastructural projects and CeFi companies, and here are some of the notable ones: 1Inch Protocol, Kraken, Terra Luna, Humanode, Front, Jeeves, AAG Ventures, AVA Labs, Republic, Bima, Binance US, Bolt, ConsenSys, Relativity, and lots of others.
Here is the current balance of interests in the portfolio.
