You’ve heard of the reality shows Shark Tank and Dragons’ Den, now get ready for:


Are you looking to build your own empire? Do you have revolutionary ideas that you want to see implemented in society? Why wait for investors, when you can join Whale Pod and showcase your own project on the big stage?

Go big, or go home. Pitch your project NOW!

As the global economy rapidly digitizes, we’re looking to constantly evolve with it. Hence, we’re bringing out a gamechanger – WHALE POD, a Web3-centric reality show series that aims to separate the ingenious from the mundane. We aim to catalyze a breakdown of international barriers in commerce and unlock capital in new and efficient ways.

A panel jury of venture capitalists, or the Whales, will judge each proposal and provide constructive critique for every project idea. Should the Whales deem any project as qualified, they will provide the necessary investment for the project to be listed, granted that they are returned a stake in or a percentage of ownership of the business, as well as a share of any profits.

However, we’re also keeping you, our community, at the forefront of our priorities. We’ve always prioritized equality in engagement – so we’d love you as part of our community to take part in the voting process, in return for our very own DAO tokens!
