In 2017, we created a spin-off agency called BlockTeam Ventures, a management consulting firm focused exclusively on blockchain and DLT. Since that time, we've worked with dozens of blockchain-enabled companies that have raised over $500 million.
Blockchain technology and emerging tech will reshape modern society in ways we can’t yet imagine. The companies that succeed in using or supporting these technologies will possess unfair advantages and unique value propositions. For us, that value comes from our marketing background, our industry knowledge, and our access to premium projects.
We're experienced entrepreneurs who love working directly with founders and executive teams. Our blockchain consulting services are focused around three core areas: Marketing, Operations, and Growth Strategy.
This can include, but is not limited to: PR, branding & positioning, digital advertising, website & product design, business development, recruiting, strategic partnerships, token utility modeling, investor relations, roadshows, and conferences.
When we enter into a service-based agreement with a company, we become part of their team, acting as part-time staff members as opposed to a third-party vendor. All of our contracts are customized to meet the specific needs of the client.
There's a reason our consulting service is selective. We believe in relationships and reputation. This goes both ways. If we work with the best companies, we look good (and vice versa). Our hope is that the LaunchTeam stamp of approval will become a positive indicator for your investors, partners, and employees. The following guiding principles help us select the ideal candidates to join our blockchain portfolio.
We only work with teams we love. After our initial interaction with founders, we always ask ourselves a simple, yet critical question: “Would we grab a drink with this team in a non-work-related environment?” We aim to be tightly integrated into the companies we serve, and this question helps us identify cultural fit. Ultimately, it ensures we’ll have fun working together to reach our goals.
By this, we don't mean that design is the most important thing. We literally mean it is everything. If you're an engineer, you should be designing the most elegant code possible. If you're a sales person, you should be designing the best possible pitch. If you're in HR, you should be designing the most enticing company-aura imaginable. Most skills are commodities; easily replicated or interchanged. High-quality, pervasive design is the one common thread that separates good companies from great ones.
Our team is made up of entrepreneurs. We aren't good at paper-pushing, but we're really good at doing meaningful stuff. We always aim to optimize efficiency and effectiveness. One without the other doesn't cut it. This means we aren't afraid to tell you how we really feel, and we expect you to do the same. We appreciate transparency, honesty, and respect.
We operate by a simple mantra: The only reason to be alive is to enjoy it. We aren't driven by money. We're driven by love. It's fairly easy to identify which companies follow this belief system and which ones do not. For us, this a core requirement for every employee, partner, investor, and client.
