Zug, April 28, 2021 — The Occam Association is pleased to announce that CV VC, an early-stage venture capital investor, has become an accelerator advisor of the Occam.fi ecosystem. CV VC, based in the same Swiss canton as the Occam Association, helps to accelerate the growth of blockchain projects from incubation to raising capital. Over the years, CV VC has been supporting the growing Cardano community through its relationship with the Cardano Foundation.

CV VC will now advise the Occam.fi ecosystem members on incubation, blockchain development, growth hacking and help Occam.fi ecosystem participants achieve their maximum potential as well as accelerate Cardano’s DeFi offerings.

Occam.fi has recently announced several strategic partnerships — including Morningstar Ventures, Spark Digital Capital and Lotus Capital — that will help in its mission of building the fundamental components required to catalyze Cardano’s DeFi capabilities.

Mark Berger, president of the Occam Association, said:

“CV VC is among the most highly regarded names in the Swiss Crypto Valley and indeed the entire worldwide blockchain industry. We are delighted that they will be working with the Occam Association to provide their expert advisory insight as we work hard to deliver the Occam.fi ecosystem.”

OccamRazer is a decentralized fundraising vehicle, or launchpad, with a full suite of compliance and regulatory technology tools as well as a feature-rich UX suitable to accommodate a vast variety of fundraising profiles. Together with the other Occam.fi components, it will act as a key to unlock the Cardano ecosystem’s liquidity.

Olaf Hannemann, chief investment officer and co-founder of CV VC, said: 

“We are pleased to advise the Occam.fi team as they embark on the ambitious mission of building DeFi tools for the Cardano ecosystem. Cardano has long featured on our CV VC Top 50 blockchain projects, and we understand the nuances of Cardano’s ecosystem. We will provide this insight and guidance to Occam.fi through our advisory capacity.”

The first advisory exercise will be provided to the Occam.fi ecosystem’s hackathon participants and initial DEX offering candidates. Moreover, CV VC will also support select startups through a fast-track application to the CV Labs Incubator Batch_03, starting Sept. 27, 2021. The Occelerator Hackathon, which started on April 19, 2021, will conclude on May 17, 2021, with selections by expert panelists in association with the Occam.fi community.

The OCC token, a multifaceted digital asset that powers the components of Occam.fi’s ecosystem, recently sold out in less than 30 seconds in a heavily oversubscribed IDO round. The OCC token is now available for purchase here.
