Chip off the Blockchain

February 2020

No one can accuse Hamburg’s Blockchance Ventures of not thinking big.

“We provide everything entrepreneurs need to build the next unicorn,” promises this combination of venture capital fund, incubator, fundraiser, PR agency and co-working space provider. And its services are specifically targeted at blockchain start-ups.

Company co-founder and managing director Fabian Friedrich is the mind behind a Hamburg conference also named Blockchance and comes from the blockchain scene. He jokingly boasts of having run the world’s first vegan Christmas market stall to accept Bitcoin.

Blockchance, which was founded in 2019, aims to assist ten fledgling firms with five million euros in seed capital and 30 million in subsequent financing over the next four years. It will be BaFin regulated in 2020.
