Earlier this week the company entered into a share purchase agreement to acquire networking and event-matching platform Leade.rs, co-founded by high-profile tech entrepreneur Loic Le Meur.
The platform will be utilised to provide mentoring and investment opportunities for companies on Zeroth, Animoca’s artificial intelligence, machine-learning and blockchain-focused start-up accelerator.
Le Meur will join the company as a venture partner to assist in growth and expansion opportunities, particularly in Silicon Valley.
The company also entered into a series of agreements for collaboration and investment with global venture accelerator Brinc Limited.
The company will invest about $1.06 million of its stock into Brinc via a mutual investment and is also leading the pre-seed investment round into Brinc’s subsidiary Brinc AOA Ltd with a commitment to purchase about $1.06 million of Brinc AOA convertible notes.
