We’re excited to announce that Ikigai Ventures—a seed-stage venture fund of industry insiders investing in the most promising founders in gaming, frontier tech, and psychedelics—has partnered with 3air, the startup aiming to connect billions of users to Web3 by combining high-speed broadband Internet with a blockchain-based platform. The partnership will enable further growth of the 3air brand and ecosystem on a global scale.
Backed by the SiGMA Group, Ikigai Ventures-backed companies benefit from significant introductions and worldwide exposure. Ikigai Ventures decided to partner with 3air because the proven infrastructure of its connectivity solution helps ensure that underserved communities can truly be connected to the global economy, enabling more users to enter the blockchain and DeFi space.
The 3air ecosystem bridges the gap between unconnected users and the global Web3 ecosystem. It enables users to access a high-speed Internet subscription through a Connectivity NFT that can be shared, transferred, and used at any 3air-compatible location. Once connected, 3air’s blockchain platform offers users access to the Web3 world of NFTs and DeFi. Users can own unique digital identities, create wallets, access micro-loans, and participate in reward-generating activities.
“We are very excited to be working with 3air, and are confident that Sandi can drive this forward towards success. The project’s platform is a game changer - and we believe the project has the potential to become an industry leader. We look forward to supporting it through our platform, both through our network and our shows.” - Eman Pulis - Founder SiGMA Group & Ikigai Ventures
