The Ideal Ecosystem To Build a Crypto Venture

We empower founding teams to build impactful and scalable blockchain-based companies by helping them to sharpen and develop their project fundamentals:

    We have decades of experience in company building as well as from top-tier financial and strategy institutions to support visionary founders on all relevant business topics (e.g., Review and feedback on your business model, Go-to-market strategy, etc.)


    Our members bring a unique blend of deep, native understanding of the asset class – published several articles within the blockchain space (e.g., Decentralized Finance Report, May 2021) and can support solving or sharpening very crypto- specific challenges like Tokenomics


    As former e-commerce company builders, we can help to bridge the gap between web2 and web3 when it comes to community building and acquiring customers


    YAP Capital’s members include highly successful and experienced web2 investors with an outstanding track record (i.e., currently 6 unicorn investments) who can further help to raise larger rounds from different VCs

  • 5) NETWORK

    YAP Capital and its members have close relationships with multiple key investors and builders in the global crypto landscape across our fund and advisory businesses, which enables knowledge sharing and co-operations.

  • 6) TALENT

    We have deep connections to the top talent pools of the world, which lets our founders acquire outstanding talents for their journey

Nothing ordinary comes from extraordinary people
