Is it safe to invest in digital assets and emerging technologies or just something for mavericks?
Depending on how one looks at investing, the emerging technologies can seem either like a new frontier or the Wild West . This is perhaps especially true when it comes to the blockchain technology. While the crypto and the recent crypto market downturn is highly polarizing the public sentiment, the adoption of the underlying Blockchain technology and its use cases are growing, especially within enterprise Blockchain solutions. The existing blockchain opportunity encompasses over 1,600 companies which raised $23.8 billion in venture capital (VC) funding in 2021 and already an astounding $5.6 billion through March 15, 2022 (Source: PitchBook, Vertical Snapshot Blockchain, 2022).
We believe an opportunity exists triggered by innovation and new solutions where the Blockchain and other emerging technologies address inefficiencies, save costs and create value.
Meet for example BVVenture Investment Fund. BVVenture is an early-stage equity VC Fund aiming to empower European entrepreneurs that are defining the Future of Finance, Web3 and emerging technologies at Seed to Series A stages. BVVentures is a Swiss-based Asset Manager, regulated by FINMA. BVVenture focuses on investing into promising Cyber Security, Blockchain and FinTech companies that went through their due diligence.
The good message is, in the current market environment, investors determin the value of these new frontier companies, offering a great opportunity. When you are worried about risk management, you have to understand how venture capital funds work.They have a lot of dry powder, meaning they have money commitments, but they are going into the market very selectively. They dont draw all commitments completely.
Dry powder and regulation are key factors for good risk management to keep your money safe. Focus on long-lasting value creation for investors through fostering great technology innovations and great entrepreneurial teams is a recipe for success. High standards for compliance, governance and risk are core to operations. Our view is that being innovative and adhering to the highest risk management policies must never be mutually exclusive.
