Darius Askaripour

Managing Director at Varys Capital


Originally from NYC, Darius started his career as an attorney and in conjunction with a team, was directly responsible for originating over $45 million of asset-backed securities in the form of issued loans within the property sector. Pivoting his career, Darius founded Creative Equity Group, a PE firm specializing in developer-focused mezzanine and gap financing within the field of domestic commercial development.

In 2017, Darius started researching in the long-term potential of uncorrelated financial products, focusing on digital assets and their potential to disrupt stagnant established industries. This prompted multiple successful early-stage investments, laying a foundation for the creation of Varys Capital which is now his sole focus. He has personally invested in 65 blockchain projects.

As managing Partner of Varys Capital, Darius oversees the venture department, carefully selecting high-yield projects as well as offering oversight for a multi-strategy trading division.

Beyond his duties at the firm, Darius is involved in the art as a donor to the famed New York City Philharmonic Orchestra and is a mentor at The Roots Foundation
