Working in a tight three-way partnership, Polygon is co-creating an accelerator to funnel resources, mentorship, education, and business acumen to promising Web3 companies from around the world. The startups selected for the accelerator will receive intensive training over the course of eight weeks as they learn to grow their business and find product/market fit across gaming, metaverse, and NFT utility products.
Our partnership for this accelerator program showcases the best of what’s possible in providing resources to projects in Web3. Alpha Venture DAO is a leading community-owned Web3 venture ecosystem in Southeast Asia, and Icetea Labs is a world-class blockchain incubator launching its first full-fledged accelerator program.
