How Web3 startup Calaxy raised $26M in a bear market (pitch deck)

Calaxy describes itself as ‘the world’s first social media application designed by creators for creators.’ Their platform, powered by Hedera Hashgraph, aims to enable the creator economy by connecting millions of fans with creators around the world.

Spearheaded by co-founders NBA player Spencer Dinwiddie and ex-Citi financier Solo Ceesay, Calaxy is an entirely new approach to the world of content creators, putting today’s fan right at the center of the action. Launched in 2020, the social marketplace welcomes influencers and entertainers to empower its fanbase by developing more intimate and engaging experiences. Notable creators on the platform include NFL Pro Bowl running back Ezekiel Elliott, R&B singer Teyana Taylor, and “The Bachelor” star Matt James.

Calaxy used this pitch deck to raise a $26 million in a round co-led by The HBAR Foundation and Animoca Brands combined with participation from Polygon.
