A42 IS A CORNER TO DAYDREAM

A place where you are inspired to discover new ways of solving problems and search for answers to complex tech challenges. It’s where you open the door of your start-up path and embark on a journey to explore the potential of cutting-edge tech to improve society.

We invest time, money, and our extensive product development knowledge in noble and promising Web3 projects. We do that by researching and building PoCs, forming and educating Web3 teams, mentoring founders, advising partners and guiding development teams to success. We do it in-house as well as consultants.

We foster ideas and projects
that have the potential
to revolutionize the way we…

…collaborate as
humans

…make tech infrastructure
for the web of the future

…create value through
financial independence

WE GUIDE, ENABLE & ACCELERATE NEW IDEAS AND FOUNDERS

With us, you can innovate to bring positive and fundamental changes to the technological advancement of our society. Meaning –  solving complex problems that others are not eager to tackle. In solving them, we build ventures in the domain of Web3.

INNOVATION HUB

BUILDERS, SHAPERS, AND INNOVATORS

We are moved by the desire to explore uncharted technological and organizational frontiers. We are geeks and doers that shape the future behind the scenes.

Our organization strives to gather like-minded innovative people into a collective under the A42 Ecosystem umbrella. In our attic, under the same roof, we build multiple specialized teams, projects people love, and products people find helpful.

We consider ourselves to be:

ADVENTUROUS
FOREVER CURIOUS
FIERCELY INNOVATIVE
HONEST
DETERMINED

Scuba diving is cool, but we prefer diving into new technologies.

We never get enough of  “Why’s, and How’s”

When something doesn’t work, we get inspired, not afraid.

We tell the truth even when it’s not pretty.

We don’t stop when it’s hard. We start fuelling our engine then.

WHY 42 you may wonder?

42 constantly reminds us that there is always something new to be discovered. This pursuit itself is something that fuels us and takes us one step closer to the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything. That’s our perpetuum mobile.

the story of VENTURES
UNITS & GUILDS

A42 HOUSE IS COMPOSED OF MULTIPLE DIFFERENT TEAMS

The single goal of these teams is launching and running successful Web3 ventures while staying on the frontier of tech innovation. A pretty unique approach to running a business if you ask us, so please – do explore further.

Ventures

Ventures are early-stage startups exiting from A42 Ecosystem with fully formed teams and business models. They all came out from A42 Acceleration through the Founders in Residence program, where we work closely with founders to make their businesses successful.

Some projects still haven’t formed ventures around them (such as Scriptarnica), while other experiences were shut down (Tesseract). There are multiple more still in the incubation phase, and when ready, we’ll share more info regarding them.

MVP WORKSHOP

Our first venture is a Blockchain Product Research & Development Studio.

BIZZLLET

is specializing in business crypto payments and settlements.

Route3

an appchain platform helping products no matter the industry to launch fast with reduced costs.

NFTIZER

is specializing in all-things-NFTs. From developing products to making them grow.

TRAPESYS

is specializing in Layer 1 and Layer 2 blockchain infrastructure development.

GUILDS

Guilds are a group of craftsmen and experienced professionals that operate independently and have a high level of autonomy compared to typical IT company departments. Within the A42 company, guilds are crucial in making the whole machine and ecosystem work.

We went through the early stages of venture building from a phase where guilds had a supportive purpose to eventually becoming a core and crucial part of our ecosystem for every little thing to simply – work.

People gathered in those guilds are often at A42 for the long run. They collaborate on multiple projects and develop initiatives to support Ventures to operate entirely without worrying about HR processes, incubation, marketing strategy, brand communications, logistics, legal paperwork, education, career development plans, etc.
