Layer 3: Platforms for Ownership & Access
Decentralized platforms enable more people to contribute and benefit from their creativity.
We believe the new generation of workers will have the opportunity to hold ownership of their own work and increase their leverage. Decentralized platforms are taking away the need for 'the middle-man' and advance accessibility. It will put any community on steroids and create opportunities to build better products, enable individual contributors to turn their work into income-generating projects, and distribute wealth.
Angel investments include:
Next generation software that breaks down barriers between applications, gives back privacy and data ownership to users.
Open-source privacy project that empowers everyone to take full control over their data. Memri digital assistent helps to organize and manage data from a single place.
