BridgingTheGap aims to raise $11 million for youth initiatives at Miami Design

LAUNCHING the first of its kind, BridgingTheGap Ventures is aiming to raise $11 million in aid of creating initiatives for the empowerment of the global youth and elevation of women through NFTs.

Debuting at the Miami Art Week, the focus on supporting the next generation’s emerging artists, limited-edition NFTs, such as Frida Kahlo’s Family Metaverse and Rob Prior’s Stan Lee Legacy Collection, to name a few, will be auctioned.

Coming together with Bitbasel at the Sagamore South Beach Hotel, the duo’s partnership will see VIP buyer events, exclusive drops, and a gallery to display and elevate the vision of young artists all come to fruition at Art Miami.

Going above and beyond the NFTs, BridgingTheGap is also offering a platform for underrepresented creatives helping widen the perspectives and visions of the world in the process.

Founded by Canadian entrepreneur, UN and TEDx speaker Kelly Lovell, she comments on how the NFTs will help mobilise change: “To achieve the inclusive and sustainable future we all seek, we must invest in up-skilling the next generation to participate in the digital economy. Through this initiative, we are building bridges to educate, elevate and empower bright young minds and future innovators to ensure no one is left behind.”

With the list of enviable NFTs available to purchase, Lovell hopes to fund projects that align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals that are focused at the youth while simultaneously reinvesting a part into the BridgingTheGap upskill programme offering universal education.
