STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL
Overview
- Over the years the Web3 space has seen evolution of various crypto incubators and
accelerators.
- Different L1s and L2s are running their own labs or accelerator programs. eg. Cronos recently
launched a $100M accelerator program in June, 2022 and has already announced applications
for its second cohort.
- There are also standalone accelerators which have produced very successful startups. These
include Outlier Ventures, Alliance DAO, Alpha Incubate, etc.
- Different programs have different unique features.
- We’ll cover the Web3 incubator/accelerator landscape including:
- Web3 native programs that follow batch structure;
- Traditional programs that intake Web3 startups as well and follow batch structure; and
- Web3 native programs that intake startups on a rolling basis.
