Last Spring, MouseBelt Blockchain Accelerator put together an investment fund to help university students accelerate their early stage blockchain projects and companies. All semester, students worked closely with our team to prepare pitches for our Spring 2019 Pitch Competition (read more about the winners on our blog). For our Winter 2019 Pitch Competition we will be investing up to $250,000 in up to 10 projects. Applications are due Feb 1.
Access to the accelerator program will last for 4 months and will include:
A $25,000 initial investment in exchange for equity in the company and tokens
- Regular strategy meetings with our business development team
- Access to our team of developers
- Industry connections
There is also a potential for additional investments in further funding rounds on a case by case basis.
Potential applicants can get advice about their projects before the due date from industry experts through MouseBelt University — currently the largest association of university blockchain organizations offering funding, educational resources, and a platform for cross-campus collaboration. Students from over 70+ schools in 16 countries have access to one-on-one mentorship with members of our engineering, business development, and university teams. Applicants are encouraged to join the program (program participants must belong to a campus blockchain student organization or be associated with a college or university).
