Technology, Social Impact, Media and Blockchain

Over the last two decades, RampRate and its founders have built strong connections and a great reputation among senior executives at Fortune 500 companies, large investors, blockchain wizards/founders of successful ICOs, cryptocurrency exchanges and miners, and developers of cutting edge technology. We are excited to share those relationships and skills with emerging companies at this time. As our first incubator services, we are seeking and growing Unicorns to be that are shaping technology, media and blockchain with impact solutions. 

We’ve saved them money, helped them build strategic partnerships, make smarter investments, develop better products and help execute their impact narrative, delivery and outcome measurement. We know what they need and they trust us to fill that demand.

Today we’re making that network and insight work for you.

Here are just some of the ventures we’ve helped get traction and investment recently:
