Launchpool is proud to announce that the Launchpool Web3 Techstars Accelerator, in partnership with Alphabit Digital Currency Fund and Launchpool, is now accepting applications through December 1, 2021. The program will work with all types of crypto-focused startups across a number of blockchains representing a first of its kind, blockchain-agnostic approach designed to accelerate the adoption of blockchain technology and advance its use cases.
Alphabit Fund is the first regulated cryptocurrency and digital asset investment fund with an all-star team. Launchpool is a regulatory compliant investment platform that guarantees its community of over 35,000 users with private seed placement investments. Together, with the guidance and expertise of Techstars, the Launchpool Web3 Techstars Accelerator is pushing the envelope of Web3 development to facilitate a more open internet.
What is the difference between Web3 and Web2, anyways?
Web2 refers to the version of the internet that most people know of today, which consists of large, permissioned, and centralized tech companies who provide their services in exchange for your personal data. This present reality is one that many found themselves unhappy with, so they decided to create a better, more open internet — that is Web3. Web3 platforms are open, meaning users do not require permission, and that anybody with an internet connection and a smartphone can access them. Web3 platforms are censorship resistant, meaning that nobody can block your access to them. Web3 platforms empower individuals to take back control of their data, as well as to facilitate a more open global economy with native payments built directly into the system. Web3 is the future, and the Launchpool Web3 Techstars Accelerator aims to facilitate this more empowered future.
The Launchpool Web3 Techstars Accelerator will work with ten startups per year over a vigorous three month period, during which the teams will receive funding and mentorship from Alphabit, Launchpool, and Techstars; access to curated workshops and resources; admittance to the Techstars global network for life (which includes unicorn companies such as Chainalysis, Remitly, and Digital Ocean, to name a few); and last but certainly not least, access to Launchpool’s distinct minimum viable community, or MVC.
Launchpool ($LPOOL) leverages communities, knowledge, expertise, contacts and capital to provide crypto projects with the best possible start to life, maximising their chances for success in this fast moving & dynamic space.
