The new $83.5 million fund is the firm’s biggest yet as it plans to power up its portfolio and gain a first mover advantage. Digital investment is a big trend in Asia, with Deloitte estimating it could boost Asia’s annual GDP by $1.4 trillion by 2035. Some GPs are still working out how to explore their adventures in Meta-land. Now, with the backing of the Korea Venture Investment Corporation – via it’s Korea fund-of-fund vehicle – it would seem Daesung are hoping to become the Masters of the Metaverse.
