Newtown Partners was founded by Llew Claasen and Vinny Lingham, two entrepreneurs on the set of Dragon’s Den South Africa.
We have worked the trenches
We’ve launched, grown and sold technology startups globally. We are proven technology entrepreneurs who know what is needed to succeed. As investors, we have successfully invested in and nurtured a number of early-stage companies from ideation to market-leading businesses.
Evolved into blockchain specialists
We started as early as 2016 by assisting startups that we had invested in, with designing and issuing cryptocurrency tokens. As a result we have acquired specialized skills and experience in token economics, token sale design and demand generation. We now specialize in token economy design, implementation and maintenance. We also work with broker-dealer partners to complete regulated token pre-sales and public sales for token issuances.
No-one else has invested as much time and skill into ensuring that the tokens that our startups have issued have utility and value across a wide spectrum of industries and use cases, including augmented reality (Augmentors), financial services (Wala) and identity management (Civic).
A proven track record of success
We have a proven track record of developing high-growth startup companies, including helping many of them with token economy design and token sales. Our portfolio companies have enjoyed some of the following recent successes:
