Venture Capital Fund In Virtual Worlds
Metaverse – an immersive virtual world. The term Metaverse does not refer to one specific technology, but rather to the way we interact with technology. So it's not just augmented reality, cryptocurrencies, or games – it's experiences, social interactions, and a new open economy.
Is it possible in this digital world, as in the real one, to find angel investors or venture funding, willing to invest in metaverse startups?
Metaverse: VC Firms Bet On Future
Is the Metaverse the future? Yes, since big companies like Google, Apple, Microsoft, Meta, Nvidia and other powerful players are investing here.
According to the report by McKinsey & Company „Value creation in the Metaverse. The real business of the virtual world”, tech companies, venture capital companies and private equity (PE) have invested more than $120 billion in the Metaverse in the first five months of 2022.
What is generating such enthusiasm among investors?
The effect is driven by an overlap of factors, including:
- technological development in the infrastructure necessary for the Metaverse to function;
- demographic trends;
- growth in consumer interest about marketing and brand engagement;
- growing market adoption as users discover today's early version of the Metaverse, driven by games and apps.
Report states clearly: 59% of consumers are excited about moving their daily activities to the Metaverse. Doesn't that sound like the best incentive for founders and startups to join this world, create and sell to a new market?
Of course it does, that's why this infinite space is also being filled by smaller companies. The startup ecosystem is thriving and where startups go – so do interested investors.
VC firms are eager to find startups focused on Web3, crypto, gaming and the Metaverse. Founders building a vision for the virtual world consistent with that of ventures can count on significant amounts of funding, in several funding rounds.
Metaverse Ventures: Investments In Growth
Interest in the Metaverse has grown since Mark Zuckerberg has spread the news that it will be the future direction of Meta (renamed from Facebook for this very reason).
When the industry trends have crystallised, many funds have emerged just to invest in the Metaverse in seed and pre-seed stage (early rounds) startups – such as FOV Ventures and Hiro Capital.

Metaverse technology is constantly changing. To keep up with it, it is often necessary to raise considerable funds. Investing in this industry, however, is becoming increasingly popular and no longer applies only to large companies.
