MX2 Capital looks to back teams that envision bold, innovative, and sometimes unusual ideas that disrupt existing infrastructure.
MX2 Capital is an early stage venture capital firm that invests in open blockchain networks and Web3 services.
MX2 capital is a venture capital company that connects Web 3.0 decentralised technologies to the global economy.
We believe Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies will drastically change the way industries and markets operate on a global scale. As blockchain technology pushes us to rethink existing business models, there are opportunities for exceptional entrepreneurs to play a part in this paradigm shift. We look for teams that envision bold innovative ideas, and have a plan in place to make them happen.
We focus on early stage companies in the areas of promising technology, including Fintech and Financial Services, Blockchain and Decentralised Finance, Digital Work and Lifestyle, Digital Health and Wellness. We invest globally but with particular interest in South East Asia.
We believe everything will become tokenized over the next twenty years – from real estate to art, from music to insurance, from IP to supply chains, from money to debt.
In the next five years, almost every single person in the world is going to be connected to the largest network in all of human history. A network that is now emerging.
Distributed networks have the power to connect the global economy in a way never seen before. By operating 24/7 365 days a year, these networks enable secure and safe operating environments for decentralised software applications.
The Web3 vision empowers consumers to own their own data. This stands in stark contrast to the status quo, in which tech giants, banks, and credit bureaus control consumers’ data. As this paradigm shifts, incumbents will lose their primary competitive advantage—their data monopolies—unlocking a massive wave of innovation and value creation.
The high-level structure differences between Web2 and Web3 are clear: In the Web2 model, companies control closed databases and own user data.
In the Web3 model, users own their own encrypted data on architecturally open networks, and interact with one another using cryptographically signed messages on smart contract platforms that act as open, programmable ledgers. Data monopolies prevent innovation by limiting the types of applications that can be built on top of these valuable datasets. As the Web3 stack matures, developers and entrepreneurs will explicitly choose to build applications on the Web3 stack instead of on the Web2 stack.
Web 3.0 will cryptographically connect data from individuals, corporations, and machines with efficient machine learning algorithms leading to the rise of fundamentally new markets and associated business models. With Web 3.0, individuals and businesses will be able to trade value, information and work with global counter-parties they don’t know or yet explicitly trust, without an intermediary.
Decentralised finance (DeFi) will unlock trillions of dollars of economic activity on blockchains. By making units of value—stocks, bonds, real estate, currencies, etc.—interoperable, programmable, and composable on open ledgers, capital markets will become more accessible and efficient. DeFi will make capital markets more efficient and accessible to everyone on the planet, and we expect this mega trend to compound over the next decade.
The blockchain protocol, which is a technology that is simply faster, better, cheaper, easier, more convenient, more secure, and open source. Its application can be utilised far beyond just financial transactions. Technology with these characteristics always wins.
We are excited to be a part of this generational shift. Value will slowly bleed out of the legacy financial system into the decentralised system. In the meanwhile, we are going to witness a great generational wealth transition.
We invest from the seed stage and support entrepreneurs over multiple rounds of investment.
We invest in both private equity and tokens for projects that have not yet launched.
Mx2 capital was founded in 2021 by a group of partners that have been involved in many start ups, establishing growth companies and partnerships across the globe.
We have diverse background experiences from these start ups in various global markets, fund raising and growth connected to an extensive network developed over many decades.
