One of the firm’s key verticals is blockchain gaming, which currently accounts for around 30% of Shima Capital’s portfolio. AI, regenerative finance (ReFi), and decentralized finance (DeFI) are some of its other essential investment sectors, explains Yida.

Going beyond traditional financial support, Shima Capital connects disruptive startups with leading vendors and consultants, and provides strategic advice to answer essential questions and offer expert guidance.

Among Shima Capital’s recently supported projects are Monad Labs, a Layer 1 EVM-compatible smart contract platform, and Spice Finance, an NFT Finance (NFTFi) innovator.

About Shima Capital –

Founded by Yida Gao in 2021, Shima Capital is a fast-growing early-stage venture capital firm prioritizing pioneering blockchain projects. Recognizing the revolutionary potential of Web3 technology, Shima Capital is on a mission to find and invest in the leaders of tomorrow, supporting cutting-edge research and innovation.

“We see a pocket of opportunity that’s missing in the capital stack for Web3 in being the first institutional capital in the pre-seed,” says Yida. “We’re trying to be the missing layer in Web3.”

The firm has been recognized by The Block’s Digital Asset Funding Landscape as one of the most active Web3 VC Funds in 2022.

A satisfied startup founder said: “Shima is one of the most helpful investors in the crypto space. They are one of the earliest believers in Parallel and a fund that works as hard as us – staying up until 3 am to craft our series A pitch deck and directly helping close investors like Sequoia and Founders Fund for our cap table. Yida and Shima are our partners for life.”
