Why now?
Retail-driven crypto boom of 2017-2018 provided blockchain entrepreneurs with initial capital often lightly structured and at high valuation for an idea stage.

Nowadays blockchain projects are maturing and releasing advanced products supported largely by institutional and corporate investors.

This is an attractive entry point at an intersection of maturing technology, better choice of quality projects, reasonable valuations driven by fundamentals and visible prospects of mainstream adoption.
Blockchain adoption is taking off
Decentralised businesses and products are close to a breakthrough into our daily activities. Initial hype and investments boosted their growth while market volatility tested viability of these projects. Maturing technology, regulation and awareness are amplifying the appeal and usability of decentralised products.

We are now reaching a point when every household will experience this new world of direct transacting built on a more efficient, fair and inclusive technology.

Our goal is to help these new projects realise their full potential and make their products part of everyday life.

  • Driven by scientists and enthusiasts

  • Less predictable value
  • Often driven by tokenomics

Arseny Klekovkin
Managing Partner
"We began our venture investing journey in 2014 with developing nanotech products for mature manufacturing industry with intense competition and high barriers for innovation. Such background demanded granular focus on timely strategic moves, leveraging technology value and relentless execution - critical components of winning for any early business.

G1 is founded by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. We know it first hand what it takes to launch a business and consider our investees as partners whom we can help to become leaders of tomorrow.

We tend to go deep into target investment segments rather than wide across the spectrum aiming to understand disruptive potential, unique strengths and execution capabilities of teams that we develop a relationship with - this guides our investment choice, strategic focus and support post investment."
Eldar Khamitov
Investment Director
"We started with fintech as the first and most native blockchain application field where decentralization is already disrupting existing landscape. And evolution of blockchain-based businesses is breeding a lot more benefits than "banking the unbanked" or even "unbanking the banked".

I have come into the blockchain from scientific routes, where I worked on peer-to-peer models including those for insurance. Since then I've been exploring how disintermediation, predictability and transparency, as well as new economic models unlocked by technologies, can eliminate inefficiencies of many industries within and beyond fintech.

We believe that a new open finance ecosystem powered by blockchain protocols will make the world economy more efficient and transparent, facilitate financial inclusion and fair distribution beyond boarders. Our goal is to empower entrepreneurs who will bring these values to every home."
