These are the web 3 games we have accelerated through our program.

Features

All startups get instant membership to the DeFi Alliance Network and gain access to a member’s web app, Discord community, ongoing keynotes, conferences, video libraries and more. 

Regional Support

The DeFi Alliance Network has chapters in China, India, and Europe composed of on-the-ground experts to provide regional support and expertise.

Education

Leaders in gaming and web 3 community building present weekly sessions on topics ranging from tools to coordinate, to launching incentives programs, to tracking key growth metrics.

Mentorship

Cohort startups are paired with one or more mentors selected based on the mentor’s area of expertise. 

Demo Day

Topping things off is a demo day where teams pitch our members, field Q&A in breakout rooms, and enjoy thought-provoking content from renown speakers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who should apply?
Any Web 3 game-related startup at any stage can benefit from the Community Accelerator program. Anon teams are also welcome to apply. We are a global accelerator and teams from any country may apply. Startups strictly focused on non-financial NFT use cases, gaming, Web3, or other sectors should apply now, more than ever, as we are building up new offerings and support for these kinds of teams.
When should I apply?
Cohorts run on a quarterly schedule but applications can be submitted at any time. However, applications are typically only reviewed in the weeks prior to each cohort.
Is there a cost to the program?
There is currently no cost to startups to apply or enroll in our accelerator programs.
Is the program virtual?
The accelerator programs are entirely remote. As the pandemic subsides, we may host some in-person events but our programs will remain virtual. 
How long is the program?
The core curriculum is spread over 3 weeks. Teams should expect to dedicate 4-6+ hours per week (which may be spread between different team members for efficiency).
What are my chances of being selected?
Startups are selected based on a range of factors including the overall diversity of ideas/teams in that applicant batch. This means that our selection criteria are not fixed and may change from cohort to cohort. We therefore encourage you to apply to future cohorts if you are not selected.
