A $50 million initial closing will be followed by an additional $100 million in closings for seed to series A investments. The NEAR Foundation will work with Caerus, which is a company formed by Nathan Pillai, to support the top Web3 programmers, engineers, and business builders as they work to produce "category-defining solutions around legendary talent and IP." Projects in the portfolio will also receive cross-functional support from the fund.
The NEAR Foundation, a?Swiss non-profit organization based in Switzerland that has created the NEAR Protocol (NEAR), recently also announced launching?a venture lab.??
Because of its "strong investment thesis focused on the tokenization of entertainment and decentralization of rights and licensing," the NEAR Foundation has chosen to support Caerus. The layer one blockchain known as NEAR Protocol was created by Alexander skidanov and Illia polosukhin and enables a number of Dapps and NFT marketplaces among other things.
