Tribes Raises $3.3M in Pre-Seed Funding

Tribes, a San Francisco, CA-based Web3-native messaging app from DMs to DAOs, raised $3.3m in pre-seed funding.

The round was led by Kindred Ventures, South Park Commons and Script Capital.

The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.

Led by Hish Bouabdallah, founder and CEO, and Andrew Courter, Product designer, Tribes is a Web3-native messaging and group wallet app for the next generation of crypto consumers, creators, communities, and DAOs to collaborate and build relationships.

The startup also announced the launch of its social wallets — a combined messaging and wallet offering that enables people to co-own and manage digital assets, as well as communicating directly with other co-owners. The social wallet combines technologies including (Gnosis) Safe multisignature smart contracts, transaction signing with Coinbase Wallet or secure in-app signatures, and Web3 identity support (ENS, Lens, etc.) for co-owner collaboration.
