100X.VC-backed web3 startup Strive raises $500K in pre-seed funding round

Web3 startup Strive stated on Wednesday that it has secured $500,000 in a pre-seed fundraising round headed by 100X.VC, Anupam Mittal, Let’s Venture, GrowX Ventures, Amey Mashelkar, Saurabh Agarwal, Sandhya Patel, YPO, and a slew of famous YPO angel investors. Funds will be used to create its marketplace & exchange for individual investors to fractionalize blue-chip NFTs.

“Our objective is to provide folks in the space access to high-quality NFTs like BAYC that have hitherto been out of reach. We believe that fractionalizing these NFTs would increase their accessibility and democratize this space “Strive CEO and co-founder Kartik Mehrotra stated.

“Strive provides a unique yet necessary solution for ordinary investors in the cryptocurrency industry. Strive’s marketplace will serve to boost NFT liquidity and make it simpler for consumers to purchase and sell NFTs in the larger market, with an emphasis on risk diversification, faster ROI, & stronger buying conviction. We anticipate the platform’s expansion in the NFT training & investing ecosystem “Ninad Karpe, a partner at 100X.VC stated.

Strive, founded by Kartik Mehrotra & Swathi Perumala, is on a mission to provide the bottom 95% of crypto holders and web3 users with access to high-quality NFTs that are generally available to the top 5% of wealth holders. Several blue-chip NFTs might cost lakhs to crores, making them an expensive and dangerous asset class for average investors. Furthermore, millennials and Gen Z are the most frequent consumers of NFTs, yet they lack the disposable money and resources to participate in blue chip NFTs. Strive is addressing this issue by making them accessible to regular investors for less than INR 1000.

It will encourage more individuals to invest in NFTs & contribute to the growth of the NFT market. Strive also offers live lessons on Web3 to help individuals improve their literacy. It has over 75,000 users who have attended live classes, and more than 100,000 Web3 users worldwide are on the waiting list to enter its NFT marketplace.

Strive is by all accounts an inspiring startup with spurring development on E-Learning providers platform. All the best to the whole group. This will give them a colossal achievement in the future.
