As the industry seeks to stabilize and redefine itself after a turbulent 2022, it is more important than ever to have a clear voice championing the broader benefits of the web3 ecosystem. Julie will help CoinFund effectively tell the story of our team and our track record as one of the very first pioneers in the crypto fund space. Her wealth of exceptional experience will be an invaluable asset to our portfolio companies on their road to success, delivering on the promise of CoinFund as the best partner to early stage teams in blockchain.”
Speaking on her appointment, Julie Mossler said: “CoinFund has an esteemed history and reputation as one of the earliest firms in web3 venture investment, rightfully holding a place of legitimacy among the crypto-native community. As the industry accelerates and broadens to welcome those who are new to blockchain, CoinFund will embody web3 ethos to build in public and provide leadership, visibility and expertise to entrepreneurs and the industry as a whole. The firm is shoulder-to-shoulder with brilliant founders building the next chapter of the web – I’m honored to tell these stories.”
