Aeternity plans on investing $200,000 in UTU Technologies, a trust ecosystem for the sharing economy and $100 in AMPNet, an integrated hardware and software suite. The remaining $1,000,000 will be distributed amongst the remaining teams: TRADEXsocial, NOBLE, Tip-me, Ride Safe Africa, YAIR, TRIBE, and Data2Honey.
In a statement accompanying the announcement, Nikola Stojanow, CBDO of aeternity and CEO of aeternity Ventures, shared how impressed he has been with the supported projects, which come from countries including Kenya, Croatia, Austria, and Germany.
The finalists have demonstrated an innate ability to take our feedback and fine-tune their business model and roadmap accordingly. I’m very excited to see the project progress to the next phase of development.
