The Injective Ecosystem Group Overview
The Injective Ecosystem Group is a venture initiative that will seek to bring unprecedented levels of growth by supporting the best builders on Injective. The core focus will involve backing builders pioneering new ideas across a diverse array of sectors including interoperability, DeFi, trading, PoS infrastructure, rollups and scalability solutions.
Injective is witnessing major growth in developer activity and dApp deployments with projects such as Helix, Frontrunner and White Whale launching on chain. Last week, Astroport, one of the largest AMMs in history also selected Injective as its new L1 destination chain. The venture group was assembled in order to further scale ecosystem growth with partners who believe in Injective and the broader Cosmos vision.
With a mission to advance the adoption of interoperable infrastructure and composable DeFi, the venture group is set up to connect new builders with the right partners within the consortium. Support will be provided via bespoke investments alongside mentorship in technical development, cryptographic research, business development, marketing, community growth and more. The custom mentorship is designed to help Web3 projects scale to the next stage in their evolution.
How Can Builders Get Involved?
To connect with the venture group, builders can submit a quick application that provides details on the idea, the team and the current development stage of the project. Upon submission of your application, members of the Venture Group will review all portions and reach out, should further clarification be needed.
You can learn more about the application process on the official ecosystem group page on Injective’s website here.
Creating The New Financial Layer for Web3

By supporting the builders of tomorrow, the Injective ecosystem can continue on its mission to create an entirely new financial paradigm for the masses that is powered by the core tenets of decentralization.
