Emurgo Launched $100 Million Investment Fund to Power DeFi and NFT Projects Building on Cardano

Summary:
Emurgo, the commercial branch of the Cardano ecosystem, has released a new product focusing on investing in startup protocols that want to build on the Cardano blockchain. This comes after several notable announcements from Charles Hoskinson’s team in the past few days. The official press release reads that the new investment vehicle, which will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of the parent company Emurgo, will have two separate branches with distinctive approaches. Emurgo Africa will “support more than three hundred regional startups through seed funding and incubation, to ultimately have Cardano’s blockchain adopted as the technological platform standard in Africa for socially impactful solutions.” This will continue Cardano’s already started initiatives in the continent.
