Injective has announced the launch of an ecosystem venture group created to build financial applications that received $150 million in backing from groups like Pantera Capital, Jump Crypto, and Kucoin Ventures.

The new funds will back a consortium that will seek to increase interoperability among the growing financial applications across Web3. The group will focus specifically on “Decentralized Finance (DeFi), trading, PoS infrastructure, and scalability solutions” within the Cosmos ecosystem, according to the January 25 press release. Injective will also host the “Injective Global Virtual Hackathon” to kick off the event.

"We're thrilled to see some of the largest names in the industry joining Injective's mission to create a more democratized financial system through decentralization," said Eric Chen, co-founder and CEO of Injective Labs. "Developer activity on Injective is rapidly increasing with major projects and this new ecosystem fund will provide unmatched opportunities for new builders entering Web3 and the Cosmos ecosystem overall."

Injective has opened applications for projects and creators to apply for participation in the fund. Upon application, Injective will pair projects with relevant institutions to help support building and development. The consortium hopes to bring more builders of Layer-1 protocols together to boost interoperability through the Injective ecosystem.
