Investment Thesis

AquaLabs' unique investment strategy is rooted in our deep understanding of the KOL landscape and technical insights into Web3 technologies. In 2023, we have strategically invested in over 20 portfolio companies, primarily focusing on infrastructure and AI projects. As we expanded our presence into the thriving Japan and Korean markets, we have also shifted our focus to include social-fi and game-fi sectors, which are experiencing rapid growth and adoption in the region. Beyond providing capital, we take a hands-on approach to support our partners by leveraging our extensive network, expertise, and advisory services, helping them navigate the complex APAC market, forge strategic partnerships, and drive user acquisition to achieve long-term success in the Web3 ecosystem.
