What is the OCTOPUS ACCELERATOR?
The Octopus Accelerator is a structured acceleration framework to initiate the future of web 3.0. We believe in the importance of a vibrant community of projects, where founders can interact in an open, entrepreneurial environment in order to effectively innovate.
A project in the Octopus Accelerator would need to work towards the Octopus Accelerator Demo Day, which allows each project to present their working MVP to a panel of judges selected from subject-matter experts, venture capital, tech specialists and other partners.
Projects successfully passing the process may receive grants, tech support, and strategic partnerships.
Why Should You Sign Up?
Supercharge your mature-stage project with mentoring, training, expert advice, and partnerships. Receive grants of up to $50,000 on successful completion of the process. Learn from a large knowledge pool of major topics including tokenomics, marketing, compliance, solutions architecture, and web 3.0.
Projects inducted within the Accelerator also gain access to an expansive community of other projects, as well as investors, marketers, and subject-matter experts.
