Why work with us

Kilonova is a boutique marketing and strategy advisory firm focused on supporting projects across Blockchain Infrastructure, DeFi, Web3, and the Open Metaverse.

We exist to support the blitzscaling efforts of visionary leaders that can push decentralization, self-sovereignty and conscious capitalism forward.

As serial entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand that pioneering bleeding-edge technology, building a rockstar distributed team, figuring out product-market fit, fostering a vibrant community, and raising capital - at the same time - is really hard. So we join founders and their projects early, accept responsibility for narrative formation, building out critical brand touchpoints, hiring and training the marketing team, and generating traction in the shape of community growth, lead generation, and investment commitments in the early stage startups we advise.

Our mission is to empower and accelerate these nascent projects around the world, with the vision that by doing so we can help shape the future of money, the new Internet, and human coordination.
