“Builders are the lifeblood of this industry, and a little mentoring and education can make the difference to empower them to build a better, fairer, more decentralized world”
With this pool of mentors containing organizations in different niches of the blockchain industry, ranging from blockchain gaming to fintech, startups can expect their projects to grow with their assistance, no matter the area they are focusing on. Gwendolyn Regina, Director at BSC Accelerator Fund, referred to the potential the program has to incentivize innovation in the blockchain industry by stating:
“Nascent projects deserve support in terms of funding and mentoring to grow and scale. With development focused and technology driven initiatives, the BSC ecosystem is now an ocean of opportunities for developers and entrepreneurs to leverage. By providing acceleration, bug bounties and incubation opportunities, we’re setting a runway for BSC projects to take off,”
By participating in this program, blockchain startups will receive expert guidance, investment and growth opportunities, and development support to create their solutions and have them run on the Binance Smart Chain network. A total of 60 shortlisted projects are expected to be admitted to the incubation program, which will be running under the umbrella of the “Most Valuable Builder” program.
