We back exceptional founders and blockchain protocols that bring us closer to a world of more individual sovereignty, trust, and privacy.



“In a world that becomes ever more digital, the relevance of cryptography and blockchain technology will increase substantially for businesses and end-users alike.” Bart Preneel
“We see a growing demand for blockchain applications in the market, yet due to a lack of funding the European ecosystem is not developed enough to meet that demand. With a complementary team, Tioga is ideally positioned to capture this opportunity in Europe.” Stijn Bijnens
"I’m interested in how decentralized networks allow for the separation of money and state by giving open-source protocols a way to compete in this previously closed market." Michiel Lescrauwaet
“There has been a growing lack of trust towards institutions and I am convinced that blockchain will have a profound impact by restoring that trust. After returning to Europe, I noticed a strong dislocation in the blockchain ecosystem and decided to launch Tioga Capital to support entrepreneurs that are solving those problems" Nicolas Priem
“Blockchain forces us to fundamentally question and redesign legal concepts and regulations. Tioga offers the opportunity to actively help various start-ups navigate the regulatory landscape. This is the challenge I’ve been looking for.” Olivier Lefebvre
“At Smartfin, we see many opportunities around blockchain and believe in its potential. Collaborating on smart and trusted datasets as well as securing sensitive information is ever more important. We believe Tioga is best positioned to capitalize on this opportunity and we’re looking forward to a fruitful partnership” Jürgen Ingels
“New technologies are increasingly centralized. I believe blockchain technology and crypto assets offer a powerful & important counterforce by enabling a decentralized control of data. In addition, I am enthusiastic about how crypto assets can help to better distribute value creation.” Patrick Van de Mosselaer
