Course overview

NFTs that fuel R&D, fund expansion and gamify loyalty

Meet Emmie (🙋🏼‍♀️ hi, it’s me) - she runs a D2C beverage biz.


She sells a limited stock of product via 200 NFTs.


Her NFT holders get exclusive perks like early access to future flavors; Emmie gains a beta testing community and raises $50,000 to fund R&D, dilution free.

Who this NFT Strategy course is for:

01

Entrepreneurs and CEOs seeking dilution-free funding and community empowerment.

02

Marketers seeking better customer feedback, new ways to reward loyalty and better gamification tools.

03

VC Platform Managers looking to empower portfolio companies to think different and grow with community.

The right NFT strategy can...

💰Raise non-dillutive working capital

An NFT can act like your own Kickstarter, but less restrictive and more profitable.


You'll learn how an NFT can fund your expansion and give your audience non-dilutive ownership they can benefit from.

📈 Gamify loyalty in new ways

Whether you give it away for free, contest-gate it, or sell it, an NFT creates scarce and unique value that your customers can collect, trade and compete for.

🤝 Fuel R&D

NFT holders are an invested community that will beta test product, buy first and provide you with direct feedback so you can go to market smarter.

🏋️‍♂️ Align customer interests with your own

An NFT aligns incentives between you and your holders, evangelizing them to market for you and help you scale.

🎙Generate media in your sector

You can cut through the noise of your sector and stand out from the competition by using an NFT as a non-crypto business.

        As a career creator, Matei's vision for creator monetization is revolutionary. I can prefund an upcoming product line, co-create with my fans and increase demand for my brand with a single NFT drop.

        I'm an investor in Matei's own NFT project and NFT fund - he knows how to see around corners and capture opportunities before they hit the mainstream. NFTs as an unlock for non-crypto businesses is no different.
