Meet the Developer Support Cohort Behind the Polygon Labs <> Warner Music Group Web3 Music Accelerator
With over 10 teams offering support for every aspect of project-building, imagining the future of music in Web3 has never been easier or more collaborative
Last June, Warner Music Group and Polygon Labs announced the launch of a music accelerator program, designed to co-support promising developers who are building the future of the music industry on Polygon protocols.
One of the ways the Polygon ecosystem is supporting this effort is through a Developer Support Cohort, which aims to make critical blockchain infrastructure, products, and services more accessible to select accelerator projects. This cohort is composed of infrastructure and other providers who have committed to helping in a special way – offering discounts, vouchers, and premium benefits where appropriate.
Let’s meet the projects that are helping to power the next generation of innovation at the intersection of Web3 and music.
