SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 1 September 2021 - True Global Ventures (TGV) announced its recently closed True Global
Ventures 4 Plus (TGV 4 Plus) Fund, the world's first truly global blockchain
equity fund was oversubscribed—surpassing its US$100 million target. The fund
is dedicated to blockchain companies, primarily in late-stage Series B and C
across four verticals: Entertainment, infrastructure, financial services, data
analytics and artificial intelligence (AI).
The TGV 4 Plus fund has invested in five companies to date: Animoca
Brands, unicorn global market leader in "Play-to-Earn" blockchain gaming and
non-fungible tokens (NFTs); Forge Global, global market leader in secondary
private markets; The Sandbox, global market leader in gaming metaverse; Canada
Computational Unlimited, Bitcoin mining company with 100% renewable energy and
QuantumRock, AI asset management market leader. Under TGV 4 Plus, these
portfolio companies have seen material value creation and commercial traction
in the past months.
Eric Munson, CIO & Founder, Adit Ventures, said, "We've been
impressed by TGV's unique deal sourcing and selection of bold entrepreneurs and
companies globally. This has enabled us to deliver outsized returns across all
our family, friends and investor partners."
Financial institutions are a key growth driver as they look to
deploy blockchain applications in NFTs, enterprise blockchain solutions,
digital identities, digital currencies, and decentralized finance (DeFi).
Increased commercial adoption of distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) such as
blockchain will accelerate the mainstream adoption of digital currencies.
With the growing recognition of blockchain equity as an asset class,
TGV plans for more equity funding rounds, following the TGV 4 Plus Fund launch.
TGV 4 Plus' 40 partners contributed 27% of the fund, together with
entrepreneurs, business angels, family offices and institutional investors,
many with co-investment rights in future equity rounds. The partners help
portfolio companies with commercial relationships, investment promotions,
introductions to VCs, loans, and private equity firms for refinancing, and
company acquisitions and exits.
"The TGV team continues to demonstrate their incredible value add to
their portfolio companies by helping them not only with client introductions
but also with next round financing and ultimately exits," said Howard Morgan,
Chairman, B Capital Group, Co-Founder, First Round Capital.
The 57th True Global Ventures Conference: Bridge between Nordics and North America will be held on September 16, 2021. Visit www.tgv4plus.com for more information.
