It would appear that NFT is upon us. After the hype and the early airdrops that enabled some to purchase Range Rovers and others to promote their over-inflated souls, the mud has settled and the business is moving on up.

As ever, it’s nearly unimaginable to choose winners in a New World that render even the most prescient visionary insensible, but there are signs that the sector is starting to deal with obvious deficiencies in our skewed analogue society.

Last week was International Women’s Day and aside from the shameless social media virtue-signalling from those (men) who profit each day from the disparity, it shines a light-weight on all of our sisters, daughters and mothers… and is arguably a extra important day than this Sunday’s (UK) Mothers Day. 

While these landmark days are necessary, others are busy making an attempt to breach the disparity gap by doing something about it, not just having a ridiculously overpriced Sunday lunch and receiving overgrown flowers.

This is the purpose the place NFTs and the similarly ridiculous over-priced venture capitalist worlds meet. The miserable numbers could be discovered anyplace on the web or with ChatGPT 4 – nobody wants to provide ladies founders money.

The present VC mannequin excludes ladies and minorities due to unfair choice standards and unconscious bias, so please be launched to Thousand Faces, a substitute for funding for girls in a extra inclusive and transparent way using the collective intelligence of neighborhood and NFTs. 

It describes itself as a ‘community-based investment club helping feminine entrepreneurs build sustainable businesses’.

Set up by two sisters who had been originally from Iran and now based in Paris, the Ashari sisters know that being a girl and an immigrant from an emerging country means the possibilities of receiving funding are even lower. That’s why Thousand Faces exists.

In its mission to democratise funding for the marginalised and excluded, Thousand Faces leverages original NFT artwork and a vibrant Web3 neighborhood to be the primary supply of funding for entrepreneurs across the globe to launch firms that make the world a better place. 

Lifelong membership is open to holders of Thousand Faces original NFTs and founding membership is reserved for members cleared for the membership AllowList. Minting is now open at

Coinciding with International Women’s Day, last week the company launched its Demo Day the place 10 female-led companies pitched for an opportunity at certainly one of 5 spots in the final month of its Female Founders Accelerator Program. 

The Female Founder Accelerator Program is a three-month program that brings collectively specialists in different fields to deliver a startup curriculum designed completely to help and foster female founders building early-stage companies supporting Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). 

The curriculum covers business classes essential to startup success, together with business plan creation, staff constructing, management, advertising and sales, branding, product development, finance, legal assist and fundraising, as properly as courses that help wellness and emotional well-being.

The program, which obtained 222 functions from 76 nations, is now entering its last stage of one-on-mentorship, first selecting a high 10, and eventually top 5 from 30 tasks that had been announced in January. 

“We’re ecstatic on the response to our first Female Founder Accelerator Program and the calibre of the projects that pitched for placement in the last five,” mentioned Moojan Asghari, co-founder and CEO of Thousand Faces.

“These women leaders aren’t solely devoted visionaries but inspiring humans who’re already creating a greater world. 

“Together, we’re committed to supporting and uplifting all of these ladies leaders in their endeavours and we can’t wait to see how their futures unfold.”

After the ten finalists have been culled down to 5, the highest three are chosen by an professional panel of jurors from Thousand Faces’ Founding Member board, and the final two being named by the Thousand Faces community of more than 200 hundred members and traders. 

An awards ceremony, planned for April 7, will reveal program winners receiving cash and in-kind prizes. The high three winners will take residence grants between 10,000 and 50,000 Euros. The awards will be sponsored by Web3-based gaming platform The SandBox, Web3 domain registrar Unstoppable Domains and French public investment bank BPI France.

“We believe the metaverse ought to drive optimistic impression each in digital and bodily worlds and raise awareness for varied social, educational and environmental causes,” explained Sébastion Borget, COO and co-founder of The SandBox.

“That’s why we’re supporting the Thousand Faces project, to foster more girls empowerment and attempt to convey more inclusivity and variety in Web3, to build a future owned by its customers and more opportunities for girls in it.”

So, as NFT 1.0 fades into the distance as misplaced souls and Range Rovers drive off to their respective sunsets, NFT 2.0 guarantees far more and, like Thousand Faces’ mission, it might even save the world, or at least make it a much fairer one.
