What Is 500 Startups In Blockchain We Trust?
500 Startups has specifically designed a new “blockchain track” as part of our March 2018 accelerator program with blockchain entrepreneurs in mind. With hundreds of companies under our belt (including Lightyear (powered by the Stellar network) and Unikorn Gold), we know how to accelerate your growth.
What You’ll Learn With 500 Startups Blockchain Track
By joining the 500 Startups Blockchain Track, you will learn the keys to successfully building, marketing, and growing the ecosystem for your project from blockchain experts. Special emphasis will be placed on areas where we have seen blockchain founders need the most support:
- Fundraising strategy
- White paper development
- Community engagement and support
- Customer and partnership development
- Go to market strategy
In addition, each week we will hold a roundtable discussion where you can get advice from 500 Startups’ community of blockchain mentors. These influential community builders range from mentors who have successfully completed their own token sale to owners of exchanges.
Throughout the program you will also interact with fellow blockchain founders and investors with whom you will share information, explore opportunities and build connections with. Our hope is to bring the right set of resources to you who will help as well as challenge your notion of what is possible in this industry.
