1/ GM, I’m so excited to be a founder again, working with @ManVsWald on @joincreatordao. We're finally coming out of stealth and announcing our $20MM round led by @a16z and @Initialized. creatordao.com

2/ CreatorDAO is here to invest in emerging creators the same way Y Combinator invested in early-stage founders while leveraging some unique DAO mechanisms to enable collaboration.
3/ I’m so grateful for the numerous investors that came into this round, but I wanted to give a special shoutout to our creators first.
4/ @JoeMontana, my partner at Liquid 2 Ventures, who despite not being a creator was the first to offer some of his Cameo earnings into the DAO treasury.
5/ @ParisHilton who shared the wonderful advice to our team to “Go slay”
6/ Alex Pall and Drew Taggart of @TheChainsmokers who back when I first came up with idea was willing to give me advice. And then got the entire Mantis team for a giant brainstorming session,

@AndrewDEast and @ShawnJohnson who are our first Creator-in-Residences
7/ @jomaoppa, who had an amazing analytics tool he was building that he turned over to the DAO, and is probably one of the best examples of why Web3 wins by giving creators real ownership in what we're buliding.
8/ @Kong408 who was one of the first to offer to put up office hours to early creators.

@garrytan and @sriramk, who are not just VCs but Youtubers and joining as members of the DAO.

This is just a small list of some of the stories I’ll share over the next few days.
9/ But the one common thread I’ve seen is a group of amazing people who came together and said we want to support the next generation of creators.

To the future creators we invest in, we here at CreatorDAO are your biggest fans <3
