Movers & Shakers

Vanagon Ventures is the early backer for founders building digital solutions at the intersection of climate and finance. We are B2B transformation and digitalization experts and have worked on the rollout of second-wave Internet technologies such as mobile and cloud, which have completely changed our global economy. We know that the technologies of the third wave of the Internet, such as Blockchain & AI, will cause an even larger transformation, so we have developed deep expertise early on. For instance, our footprint in the European Blockchain landscape since 2016 gives us unparalleled access to teams who build meaningful companies with real-life impact.
