Techstars Web3 Accelerator

This accelerator works with entrepreneurs building in web3 and enabling the next wave of growth in the decentralized internet and in tokenized economies. We invest in and accelerate founders enabling the onboarding and engagement of the first one billion users of web3. Where we see DeFi, NFTs, metaverse, gaming, creator economy and blockchain infrastructure propositions playing a big role, we know there's a lot more taking shape - including interoperability layers, investment utilities, DAO tooling, digital identity and more.
