Tribe Capital


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.
