Long substance, short status;
Long freedom, short coercion
Primitive Ventures is a crypto venture firm led by industry veteran Dovey Wan. We believe crypto represents the new socioeconomic primitive that will redefine individual sovereignty and financial paradigms. Over the past 10 years, the team has collectively incubated and invested in over 50 unicorn protocols and on-chain economies. The fund is fully owned by our team without any outside money. We are a team of engineers, builders, and dreamers looking forward to working with the next generation of founders and decentralized economy leaders.
