a16z Makes Waves in the UK Crypto Wave, Splashing Cash in £3.4M Seed for Pimlico

Venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz is breaking free from the shackles and spreading its wings across the Atlantic
November 10, 2023

Step into the future of cryptocurrency innovation as Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), a heavyweight U.S. venture capital firm, breaks new ground with its first international office in the bustling heart of London. Amidst the buzzing regulatory landscape in the U.S., a16z is making waves with its strategic move, transcending borders and unveiling a promising investment in Pimlico, a UK-based web3 infrastructure trailblazer.

Picture this: Pimlico, headquartered in the vibrant city of London, is now riding the wave of success with a substantial $4.2 million seed funding injection from a16z. This financial backing is set to propel Pimlico to new heights, empowering the company to enhance its operations and continue shaping the future of decentralised applications (dApps).

At the core of Pimlico's mission is the creation of cutting-edge infrastructure, empowering developers to craft dApps that redefine user-friendliness in the decentralized landscape. The timing couldn't be more perfect, with a16z's investment aligning seamlessly with Pimlico's CEO, Kristof Gazso's completion of the prestigious Crypto Startup School program.

This strategic collaboration positions Pimlico to spearhead advancements in the web3 domain, bringing us closer to a world where user-friendly and decentralized applications are not just a possibility but a reality. Pimlico's journey to transformation doesn't stop here; prior to this, the company had already raised a remarkable $1.6 million from a league of visionary investors in a pre-seed funding round.

As the sun sets on this groundbreaking investment, the horizon is ablaze with the promise of a dynamic and innovative future for the cryptocurrency sector, with London at the epicenter of this unfolding narrative.
