Testimonials

“Village has been a really positive experience so far for us @ AlphaCapture.  We have felt supported in a number of specific areas – referrals into accelerators, masterclasses and a free security pre-audit, as well as generally enjoying having the backing of a friendly, engaged community, in terms of both the Polygon team and the other startups in Village.  The increased exposure is helping too.  Since being part of Village, traffic to our website and socials has been going up."

“Around six weeks ago we got accepted into the Polygon Village Build Ideas Program. After submitting our KPI milestones we attended seminars organized by the Polygon team. Village team has been extremely helpful in onboarding us to the program, introducing us to our mentors, setting up calls with them and providing support as and when needed.”

“The program is incredibly riche with resources, the perks, the mentors, and the benefits are well thoughts and adapted to the projects needs, we are diving deeper into Buidl platform to take the most out of it. Polygon team is proactive with a true force of proposition. We’re having a beautiful autonomy and some of the requirements such as the public sharing of the work in progress are setting a great mindset within Zero-Code and Presence teams.”
