Stellar Enterprise Fund

A Strategic Blockchain Fund

The Stellar Enterprise Fund is a venture-style fund that expands the open-source Stellar network. We at the Stellar Development Foundation invest in companies transforming the future of everyday financial services through Web3 innovation. We are fierce advocates of blockchain technology potential.

This is who we are - we won’t pivot from blockchain and are waiting to fund the next game-changing company.

Our Why

One commitment drives our investment: to amplify the Stellar ecosystem’s utility and impact by fostering innovation that elevates everyday financial services. We are purposeful in our investment, supporting companies that envision and actively work towards creating a better future.

Our investments go beyond capital; each funding is a declaration of SDF’s belief in the company's, and the broader ecosystem's, potential for improvement.
