We’re thrilled to introduce the Harmony ONE Accelerator Program! This program is meant to help the Harmony ecosystem of builders, DAOs and creators grow to the next level. This provides the next stage of growth where many of the $300M Ecosystem Fund grantees who have built on the Harmony blockchain are now ready to take the next leap.

The accelerator program consist of the following areas:

  • Harmony Venture Network
  • Harmony Talent Network
  • Harmony Advisors Network
  • Harmony Services Network

Let’s take a closer look at the program’s network components

Harmony Venture Network

Harmony ecosystem builders have the opportunity to join Harmony Venture Network. Projects launched on Harmony Mainnet, including Hackathon Winners and Harmony Ecosystem Fund grant recipients have the opportunity to grow to the next level by presenting their vision, latest roadmaps and developments, to an audience of strategic investors.

This program shall initially be run by Harmony and eventually be run by a DAO. The goal of the Harmony Ventures program is to curate projects launched on the Harmony ecosystem of Builders and Creatives, to help them prepare to meet with an audience of strategic iInvestors.

Harmony Talent Network

Since the announcement of Harmony’s $300M Ecosystem Fund, Harmony’s community witnessed tremendous growth with developments in the areas of DeFi, GameFi, NFT, Infrastructure, Developer Tools, Marketplaces, Social Impact and recently in the Metaverse space. As Harmony builders grow within the Harmony ecosystem, we’ve seen teams go through growing pains when trying to hire the right talent for their teams.

The Harmony Talent Network program is born to solve for this very problem. We have launched a pilot program with Braintrust to tap into a massive talent pool of software developers, designers, and product managers to help strengthen the core teams building on Harmony.

Harmony Advisors Network

As the Harmony Venture Network program launches, Harmony Ecosystem builders now have the opportunity to seek outside investments. In order to optimize their potential, there may be questions around corporate structure, narrative, funding levels, tokenomics, legal, accounting, and many others topics, to even be considered for venture capital investments.

To scale this, the Harmony ecosystem builders can work with advisors such as Saxon Advisors, as they can provide advisor services to help teams at many growth stages. Advisors can also increase the access to network of investors which are highly interested to invest in ecosystem projects.

Harmony Services Network

The Harmony Services Network is a curated list of service providers aimed to provide ecosystem builders with a list of partners capable of helping them grow to the next level. Whether it’s auditing their first smart contracts, finding fiat onramp providers, subscribing to reliable RPC access to blockchain data or increasing token liquidity via centralized exchanges, there’s no better way to accelerate one’s growth by having the right conversations with partners that are warmed up to Harmony.

About Harmony’s Ecosystem

In 2019 to 2020, Harmony focused on growing a community while bootstrapping the network layer of Harmony’s ecosystem with Mainnet Launch, Open Node Operations and Open Staking launch.

In 2021, Harmony’s ecosystem grew during DeFi summer where liquidity via decentralized exchanges (DEXes) and incentivizing decentralized finance (DeFi) to grow on Harmony. The open permissionless platform together with a vibrant community organically attracted DeFi (and GameFi) dApps to be built such as DefiKingdoms, Tranquil Finance and ViperSwap bootstrapped the DeFi ecosystem, with DefiLlama reporting over a billion dollars locked in TVL.

On Sep 9, 2021, we announced the $300M Ecosystem Fund to ramp up utility on the Harmony ONE blockchain to help fulfill Harmony’s Vision in 2026 announced during Harmony’s premier Day ONE conference in Dec 8, 2021. As of the end of Q1 2022, over 300 grantees have been approved with the amount of $37M+ committed.
