What is the plan for 2022?
For the second time, Blockchain Founders Group will present the BFG Superstars program. The program aims to select 5-7 startups per cohort who will receive funding and mentorship. The aim is to give capable and talented entrepreneurs a chance to thrive with our company-building expertise. At the end of the program, participants have the chance to receive funding of up to €60,000.
The program offers everything from finding the right co-founder to expert workshops and sessions with leaders in the blockchain and venture capital industry. Topics such as product development, internal organization, and other best practices are also covered.
Focus areas of the 2nd cohort of BFG Superstars
The startups we build should (but don’t have to) be in the following areas:
- Decentralized Finance (DeFi)
- Bitcoin Lightning
- Business models related to CO2 compensation
- Metaverse and Web3
- DAOs and governance
- On-chain analytics and forensics
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Crypto trading and wealth management
- ESG and sustainability
- Data monetization
Who can apply?
We are looking for talented candidates with a passion for blockchain technology and entrepreneurship. This could be someone who already has experience with Web3 projects or someone who wants to make the jump to Web3 from a technical, educational or commercial background. You don’t need an idea or a team to participate. We only need you and your passion, the rest is up to us. However, if you have a team or an idea, you can take it to the next level with BFG Superstars. In short: you can apply alone or as a team, with an idea or without an idea.
