I could not be more excited to let the world know that we are adding Meltem Demirors to the 3.0 Capital team as a non-operating partner. Previously Meltem was the VP of Development at Digital Currency Group (DCG) where she led a team that drove growth, network, and strategy across a geographically diverse portfolio of over 120 companies across 30 countries. Meltem’s knowledge of the crypto ecosystem, access to key partners, and deep commitment to equality and inclusion in the industry align with the ethos of 3.0 Capital. In the time that Phil and I have known Meltem we have grown to respect her intellect as well as her passion for cryptocurrencies and proven execution capability. We cannot think of a better person to add to the 3.0 Capital team and feel privileged to call her a partner and a friend.
In her role as a non-operating partner and investor in the fund Meltem will focus on three key areas:
Additionally, projects that we invest in will also benefit significantly from the addition of Meltem to the fund. As a result of Meltem joining 3.0 Capital our fund will be in an even stronger position to continue to add value to teams and projects after we have made our initial investment. Meltem’s experience as a business leader, advisor to Fortune 100 companies, educator at Oxford and MIT, and her role as an inaugural member of World Economic Forum Blockchain Council put her in a position to help accelerate and guide 3.0 Capital portfolio companies.
Meltem holds a BA in Mathematical Economics from Rice University, and an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management.
Please join Phil and I in officially welcoming Meltem to our team!
