Sound Ventures, the venture capital fund founded by Guy Oseary (pictured at left) and Ashton Kutcher, is jumping into the NFT game, announcing an investment of $1 million for a pitch competition set to launch on April 21. Teaming with Mark Cuban and Snoop Dogg, “NFTs: The Pitch” will feature a judging panel that includes such “crypto and NFT heavyweights” as Whale Shark, collector and founder of $WHALE, Metakovan, founder of Metapurse, musician 3LAU, and Linda Xie, co-founder of Scalar Capital, in what feels like a twist on the “Shark Tank” model.
Applications for “NFTs: The Pitch” are being accepted starting today (April 5) through April 12, and up to 30 finalists will be notified on April 16. On April 21, finalists will participate in a live virtual pitch session with the judges.
