Sleek Raises $5 Million in Seed Funding to Revolutionize Digital Networking in Web3
Sleek is well-positioned to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of authentic human connections in the digital age.
Hong Kong-based social networking platform Sleek has secured $5 million in seed funding. This marks a significant milestone in its mission to reshape "digital human connection."
Sleek was officially launched in April 2023 and is dedicated to simplifying networking. It has also boosted productivity, introducing an element of enjoyment to the online social space. At the heart of Sleek's offerings is its flagship product, the Sleek Card. The card is designed to empower web3 professionals in face-to-face networking.
This funding round attracted investors like Market Across, Spartan Group and Symbolic Capital. Others are Genblock Capital, Big Brain Holdings, Emirates Consortium, Arkstream, Perridon, and GBV. Binance Labs, the venture capital arm of Binance, also supported Sleek through the Binance Labs Incubation Program in 2022. The card leverages NFC technology and a proprietary messaging bot.
Uses of the Sleek Card
The Sleek Card is bigger than traditional business cards since it has a blockchain wallet and a decentralized identity for users. The Sleek Card allows users to capture data and manage contacts, resulting in robust on-chain social graphs.
Since its launch, Sleek Card has facilitated over 300,000 connections. This, establishing itself as a key player in the rapidly evolving web3 landscape. The platform has partnered with industry leaders such as Solana Hacker Houses, Coinfest, Digital Art Fair, and NFTNow. It offers unique and innovative event experiences to its growing user base.
Looking ahead to the first half of 2024, Sleek plans to unveil an open marketplace. It will also provide domain experts with the opportunity to tokenize their knowledge. This strategic move aligns with Sleek's vision for a user-centric digital social landscape.
Sleek's remarkable 10-fold growth since its inception in February 2023 is thanks to its community.
