Investing in the future of prosperity

Flori is a seed-stage venture fund sponsor supporting a more inclusive financial system.

We partner with visionary founders who believe financial innovation can create financial inclusion.

We want to accelerate those who believe that a new financial system built on blockchain technologies can be vastly more inclusive than the one we have today, and who are committed to making that vision a reality.

Flori grew out of the mission-driven community around Celo, an open blockchain platform created to solve real world challenges, starting with those who need it most. We share their mission: to build a financial system that creates the conditions of prosperity for everyone.
