The FT x Cardano Blockchain Challenge is looking for companies who are working on Cardano or are interested in using the Cardano blockchain platform and community, and will provide selected companies with access to a bootcamp and accelerator program.
The FT x Cardano Blockchain Challenge is a collaboration between Cardano’s Project Catalyst, a community and group of experiments focused on self-governance to grow the Cardano blockchain; Seedstars, a Switzerland-based organization with the mission to impact people’s lives in emerging markets through technology and entrepreneurship; and the Financial Times, one of the world’s leading business news organizations.
The purpose is to find and invest in high-growth firms around the world, as well as to support entrepreneurs that are building or planning to develop blockchain solutions based on the Cardano public blockchain platform. Participants will be provided with the necessary tools and methodologies for gaining traction and scaling their blockchain solutions.
Fifty startups will be chosen for a three-day bootcamp, after which 24 entrepreneurs will be selected for a follow-up acceleration program. The Seedstars International Investor Fund will fast-track a worldwide winner. Interested applicants can register online by May 31.
“Developments in the blockchain and Web3 space are something that our team is excitedly watching unfold. To take part in supporting all the possibilities and innovations that blockchain enables, our team is thrilled to launch the FT x Cardano Blockchain Challenge,” said Alisee de Tonnac, co-CEO and co-founder of Seedstars.
