Coinbase Ventures Lead Katherine Wu Leaves for VC Firm Archetype

Katherine Wu, who served as Coinbase Küresel Inc.’s (COIN) senior deal lead of ventures, announced she has left the company to join early-stage crypto investment firm Archetype.

  • “Today is my last day at Coinbase. Sometimes you take that leap of faith and it just doesn’t land quite right- that’s ok! Eternally grateful for the amazing people I’ve met & proud of the work I’ve done,” Wu said on Twitter.
  • Wu said she will continue to invest and support “the best founders in the crypto ecosystem” but that she was “also excited to spend time exploring some side projects.”
  • Wu joined Coinbase in early 2021. Her work history includes roles at pre-seed fund Notation Capital and crypto research and veri platform Messari.
  • Coinbase Ventures had a record investment year in 2021, having invested in just under 150 deals. The firm said those deals represented more than 90% of the funds the firm has deployed, on a cumulative basis, since its inception in 2018.
  • Archetype was founded by Ash Egan, who previously co-founded ConsenSys Ventures. The Archetype portfolio includes DAO builder Syndicate and Meow, a company that connects corporate treasurers to crypto markets.
