"Polygon Village has been an absolute game-changer for MEGO. Village provided us with mentorship, resources, and access to the Polygon ecosystem. Thanks to team support, we were able to fine tune our product, by finding the correct way to create our product. Village team's dedication and expertise truly helped us and we couldn't be more grateful for this incredible journey"

Mego Tickets

"Polygon Village gave us practical support with our business (grants, vouchers, etc) as one of the first to see our vision. But they did much more than that. They promoted us to their circles, set up calls whenever we wanted to support however they could, and continued to develop new ideas for working together that even we hadn't considered. It's safe to say we wouldn't be what we are today without them."

David Phelps and Sean McCaffery, Jokerace

"We're thrilled to recommend Polygon Village as an incredible hub for emerging teams, as it provides much-needed opportunities for personal and B2B connections, making it a perfect destination for upcoming brands .As blockchain auditors, we're constantly impressed by the Village's diverse range of projects nested across various Web3 verticals. Hacken is proud to prioritize security in Polygon's ecosystem and help grow stronger market participants. We're optimistic about the future of Polygon Village and all the abundant opportunities it has to offer!"
