Auros, a prominent global market-making and algorithmic trading firm, has announced the launch of Auros Ventures, a new venture capital division aimed at driving innovation within the digital assets and Web3 spheres. The division will be led by experienced digital assets expert Julien Auchecorne. Auros Ventures will leverage Auros’ risk management capabilities and liquidity provision expertise to invest across the project lifecycle, from early-stage primary investments to liquid secondary investments. The division has already invested over $15 million since Q3 2023 and plans to invest an additional $50 million over the next two years. Auros Ventures’ portfolio includes notable projects such as the Oracle network Pyth and the Layer-1 blockchain Berachain. Julien Auchecorne, who has held senior positions at XBTO, J.P. Morgan, and Brevan Howard, will work closely with Auros’ founder and CIO Ben Roth. The venture aims to provide not just capital but also market-leading advisory services to its portfolio companies. This initiative marks a significant milestone in Auros’ growth trajectory since its founding in 2019 and underscores its commitment to fostering sustainable ecosystem growth and innovation.
