March 2021 is officially marked as the most fruitful month for InnMind DeFi startups. Even if you feel critical towards the crypto finance and tokenized startups’ space, you should keep an eye on what’s going on in this sector in 2021. And it’s going crazy! The Decentralized finance (known as DeFi) keeps hitting new highs in its most popular metrics: starting from an aggregate $600 million in assets in 2019, DeFi protocols have grown to nearly a million users, $40 billion in assets and nearly $60 billion in market capitalisation in 14 short months.

During the VC Shark Tank Pitching Session that took place in March and was focused on the DeFi & Crypto industry, 4 out of 8 startups that were pitching already received offers from investors and 2 deals have already been closed within 1 week after the session! Considering such a success rate after the first session, we decided to provide more opportunities for both DeFi investors and startups to get connected to each other for deal origination at the Second Edition of InnMind DeFi pitching session already on the 15th April!
