The Metaverse Podcast

Early Funding, with Maria Shen of Electric Capital

January 17, 2022

We're back with one of our last recordings from NFCastle, with Maria Shen of Electric Capital, an early-stage venture firm focused on cryptocurrencies, blockchain, fintech, and marketplaces.

Prior to Electric, Maria was CTO and co-founder of Bambify, which helped SMBs easily form supply chains with manufacturers across the globe. She has also worked on search technology at Microsoft, with her features shipped to more than 1 billion devices.

Today, Jamie Burke & Maria discuss startup acceleration, funding for Web3 projects, faith in founders, the investment thesis, and the importance of regulators for clarity. 


Whether you’re a founder, investor, developer, or just have an interest in the future of the Open Metaverse, we invite you to hear from the people supporting its growth.

Outlier Ventures is the Open Metaverse accelerator, helping over 100 Web3 startups a year. You can apply for startup funding here -
