The Algorand Foundation aims to encourage and spur blockchain development with an accent on Finance 3.0 and beyond, empowering projects to build, grow and foster financial innovations across the Algorand ecosystem. The launch of Algorand Asia Accelerator and Algorand Europe Accelerator in 2020 supported our goal to encourage and assist startups and developers looking to build on Algorand.
The Algorand Asia and Europe accelerator programs provides selected projects with end-to-end support across the wide spectrum of strategy formulation, go-to-market execution, and subject matter guidance across technological mentorship, token economics, marketing, and fundraising. The blockchain startups and projects selected are benefiting from working with a variety of esteemed, distinguished, and experienced program mentors.
The Algorand Asia Accelerator program is a collective initiative between the Algorand Foundation, Borderless Capital (the Algorand-focused blockchain venture fund) and powered by LongHash Ventures, supporting blockchain startups and entrepreneurs to build decentralized applications on Algorand blockchain with an emphasis on Asia.
The Algorand Europe Accelerator launched in October 2020 and finished in April 2021, culminating in the 11 finalist startups presenting their project pitches. The program was a collective initiative between Eterna Capital, Borderless Capital, and the Algorand Foundation, supporting blockchain startups and entrepreneurs with an emphasis on Europe to build decentralized applications on Algorand blockchain.
