æternity Starfleet: The amazing teams we have selected vol.1
After weeks of scouting, reviewing applications and interviewing, we have made the final selection of the teams that will take part in the first wave of æternity Starfleet Incubator for Blockchain startups. They are absolutely amazing and we can not help ourselves but share them with you!
Around 50 world-class teams have applied on F6S.com from all over the world!
We have teams from as far as Brazil, Sydney, the US and Kenya. Their projects presented ground breaking ideas in a variety of sectors including Sharing Economy, Artificial Intelligence, Recruiting, Renewable Energy, Entertainment, Gaming, Augmented Reality etc. This made it extremely hard for us to select just 10 teams to take part in the first wave. That’s why we choose 16 :)
On Monday, 11th of June, their journey starts with a week full of lectures, workshops and tasks.
We have invited some world class lecturers to join us and share their knowledge. They will be helping each team with Blockchain economics, Customer development, Pitching and much more. The week ends with the first big demo day when each team will present their idea to a selected jury. The event will be live-streamed globally so everyone from the community can become part and help us evaluate the teams.
But without further ado, let us introduce the first 7 teams:
