Jeremy Gardner is a serial entrepreneur, angel investor, and venture capitalist with a track record of success operating and investing in frontier industries such as blockchain technology, cosmetics, and psychedelics.
Jeremy is one of the most well-known early entrepreneurs and evangelists in the crypto space. In 2014, while in college, he founded the Blockchain Education Network (BEN), a global educational nonprofit. Shortly after, Jeremy co-founded Augur, the decentralized prediction market platform, the first ever ICO, "utility token," and DeFi app on Ethereum. He then worked as an entrepreneur-in-residence and investor at Blockchain Capital, investing in some of the industry's biggest companies and creating the first tokenized security, BCAP. He also served as the founding editor-in-chief of Distributed magazine.
In 2018, Gardner cofounded Ausum Ventures, a hybrid venture-hedge fund focused on the intersection of blockchain technology, cryptoassets, and social impact. He bought out his LPs at a nearly 5x multiple at the peak of the market in 2021.
He is an early investor in over 100 startups as an angel and VC, worth tens of billions of dollars today. He most recently founded MadeMan, a men's skincare startup, and is the managing partner of Mystic Ventures, a venture fund focused on psychedelic medicine. He also is on the board of NFT Technologies (NEO: $NFT) and an advising partner at Round 13, a $100m crypto fund.
