The three main components of the PIPE are the STEaM PIPE Incubator, The PIPE Fund and the PIPE Exchange.
Projects that successfully pass through the STEaM PIPE are presented to The Fund for investment and become a ‘portfolio company’ on the PIPE Exchange. Additional tranches of funding up to €2m are provided when/if portfolio companies hit their pre-defined KPIs that are documented during the STEaM PIPE process. These tranches are provided automatically via the blockchain/DLT process under existing Smart Contracts when key milestones/KPIs are hit.
Authorised Participants (AP) register via the PIPE Exchange, undergo KYC/AML and become registered users as well as PTK Holders once they have invested via the PIPE Exchange into The Fund in fiat or crypto currency.
