About Us

Nastya Adamova

Web3 can offer all that today's society longs for: inclusivity, recognition, and means to be creative. I'm here to shape the way we honor the unheard.

Our
difference

We’re BABs Labs, a group of badass women on a mission to make inclusivity a priority in shaping a new future and economy.

We exist to help visionary industries, communities, and brands come together to expand their representation in Web3 in an authentic, financially impactful, and art-led way.

What sets us apart is that we are not simply a cause-backed organization. We firmly believe in building a profitable and strategy-backed business that also makes a lasting impact.

Art-led

We believe the future of NFT artwork will be multi-media, layered, and focused on collective community and business impact. Every brand we work with is paired with an artist of diverse background to lead the vision and brand strategist to authentically weave in the messaging of the brand.

Financial impact

We believe that artists, people who make the art happen are financially underrated. Traditional galleries tend to charge as much as 50% of general profit from an artist. This is not fair. Artists should be entitled to freedom of financial ownership of their own work and we're here to fix it.

Authentic inclusivity

We believe that authenticity and inclusivity breed creativity. We’re looking to present and promote those who were not heard enough in the past. Ethnically, demographically, racially, and beyond. We’re here to show that Web3 is a place for everyone.
