Traditional Venture Capitalism is broken. D-Central are looking to completely flip the traditional VC model, leveraging the power of the Global Community and the opportunities presented by BlockChain Innovations. In Doing so we will look to address the following, fundamental flaws of Traditional Venture Capitalism:
1: Illiquid and long term investments with average market returns
2: Power and Decision Making Concentrated in the hands of a few Middle Class White Men with very narrow views on the wider world… often believing they are far Smarter at calling the ‘Next Big Thing’ than evidence would suggest.
3: Poor Diversification of Portfolios with the double edged sword of high risk exposure and multiple missed funding opportunities
4: A Complete ignorance of solid, revenue generating companies that don’t fit into the ‘Black Swan’ typecast.
D-Central Capital provides an innovative approach to Venture funding that puts the community at the heart of what it does. Our goal is to decentralise the funding and redistribution of profits from the already rich to those who have the skills and knowledge within the digital community…
We call it VENTURE PARTNERING.
