Cap3 Collective is a community-driven platform that connects Web3 creators and project builders with funding opportunities. Anyone in the world can submit a project proposal to Cap3 – the community token holders will vote to select proposals to receive funding and support.
Cap3 has a core mission of launching new, innovative, high quality Web3 projects. Every 5 months, the community will choose 10 projects to receive $100,000 to begin building their vision. In return, funding recipients will give a percentage from their initial mint back to the community.
Funding Process: Seasons
Cap3’s project funding process is organized into 5-month long periods known as “Seasons.” Each Season will begin with a $1,000,000 fund which will be awarded to 10 projects chosen by the community to receive $100,000 each.
How Does Voting & Project Funding Work?
On the first business day of every month, all qualified project submissions received over the previous 30 days will be available for review. Members of the Cap3 community may cast one vote for the project they would like to see receive funding.
Voting will end on the last business day of the month, and the two projects that receive the most votes will receive $100,000 to build their vision.
Collective members enjoy guaranteed early access, discounted pricing, and profit participation. Individual refunds for Genesis Passes are able to be issued anytime before the conclusion of the private sale period -- we’ll provide the code to prove it.

**IMPORTANT**: The number of individuals allowed to purchase a Genesis Pass will be capped at 500. At the conclusion of the Genesis Pass private sale period, all 2,000 tokens will be evenly distributed to each member. Individual refunds are able to be issued anytime before the conclusion of the private sale period (we’ll provide the code to prove it).
Lifetime: Genesis Passes do not expire. All benefits and revenue sharing will be ongoing.
Offer: Genesis Pass membership sales will be private, by invitation only (cultivating a community that is fundamentally built to last is our highest priority).
Revenue Share: 10% of the gross proceeds of funded projects, split between no more than 500 members. We created a calculator so you can see what the revenue share would be with multiple scenarios.

Subscription Pass memberships will hold voting power for one Season, but all enacted revenue shares will be continued beyond the voting lifetime of the Subscription Pass. You can learn more about it here: Revenue Sharing.
Offer: Subscription Pass memberships will be offered via a public sale in November 2022. Each Subscription Pass buyer will have the ability to profit by referring new members - you can read more about the Referral Program and mint plan over at Subscription Pass Mint Schedule & Referral Program.
Revenue Share: 15% of the gross proceeds of funded projects, split between SPs which vote, 2.5% of secondary sales split among SP’s that participate in private sale of funded project.

Cap3 is a community that selects, funds, and profits with new Web3 projects.
Cap3 collects new Web3 project ideas that are currently seeking $100,000 of seed capital. Ideas with the most potential are passed along to the community, which chooses two projects per month to receive capital from the DAOFund™ treasury. Selected projects will receive project management and strategic assistance during their build phase from Cap3. Upon launch, selected projects will share 30% of their initial mint revenue with the community, as well as exclusive access for the community to buy before the project is made available to the public.
The community DAOFund™ will be created with $1M from the initial sale of the Subscription Pass memberships. At the end of each Season, the renewal of Subscription Pass memberships will replenish the community DAOFund™ for the next 10 approved projects.
Profit sharing from the initial mint, automatic whitelist inclusion for a members-only presale, and the opportunity to share in the ongoing secondary market royalties of projects launched by Cap3.
Membership into the community is obtained by minting a Genesis or Subscription Pass. Community members will have the ability to vote to fund Web3 project ideas and share in their profits short and long term profits without taking equity.
Cap3 Collective members share in the profits and royalties of projects funded by the community. They don’t take equity like traditional capital providers, which means the project founders retain 100% ownership.
Anyone can submit their project ideas to Cap3 Collective by filling out the submissions form here.
Projects are vetted for quality control before being passed to the community.
Yes. Our platform has traditional capital providers available to fund Web3 projects in all stages and all use cases. The DAOFund™ is focused solely on seed-stage projects. Think of Cap3 Collective as a one-stop-shop to submit your project to a wide variety of capital providers. Traditional capital providers have free access to the platform just like capital seekers.
Cap3 Collective has been vetted by our lawyers for compliance with applicable State and Federal laws through the entire build process and will continue to be retained and advise on all future matters to ensure ongoing compliance.
Cap3 will immediately hire additional project managers and strategists to assist with the oversight and launch of successfully funded projects. Improving and updating the Cap3 UX as the community begins to operate will also be an early priority. Ongoing legal and operational expenses to keep Cap3 Collective fully compliant with State and Federal regulations will be a significant and constant cost.
Approved projects will receive project management and strategic services from Cap3, as well as general oversight to ensure responsible use of funds and the promised rev share to be sent back to the community upon the launch of their smart contract. Projects will also have access to Cap3’s network of blockchain and web developers, marketers, content creators, and more.
Cap3 has filed a trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the term “DAOFund”.
The name “Cap3 Collective” comes from the idea of combining venture capital, Web3, and the concept of a collective that makes decisions together.
