Twice a year, we bring together a highly selective group of founders for an intense 12-week sprint to hone their value proposition, test their assumptions with real customers, and prepare for the next phase of investment and growth. Together with our global network of experts and advisors, our experience building pillars of the core blockchain development suite, and a wide array of industry partners, we help guide founders in building validated, market-ready Web 3.0 businesses.
“Built by Entrepreneurs, for Entrepreneurs”
In-the-trenches Advice: We are founders. We’ve been founders. And we give our founders advice as entrepreneurs who have been in the trenches building companies.
Transforming Engineers into Entrepreneurs: We help highly technical founders become better startup founders.
Do As I Do, Not As I Say: We don’t give our founders any advice that we don’t do ourselves. We set the bar for excellence in how our team operates.
