Starfleet India comes up soon! The deadline for submitting applications is 9th February.

We know that we’ve been talking about the progress of the Starfleet Accelerator Programme in Malta, but that’s not all we’re working on. We’re excited to let you know that we will soon be heading to Bangalore City in the Indian sub-continent to set up Starfleet 4.

Stepping forward into India’s blockchain and startup ecosystem

Given these facts, we truly believe that we can make an impact in the Indian startup ecosystem with æternity Starfleet Accelerator to enable many more blockchain startups to grow. In order to do this, we joined hands with IBC Media — a team of experts who aim to empower innovators with the right opportunities to build great products. With this collaboration, we decided to take æternity Starfleet to India. In fact, we even opened up applications and are working towards the Genesis Week.

And that’s how we started off!

You can start signing up here: https://www.f6s.com/starfleetindia

We’ve worked with over 50 startups, helping them get on their feet with personalized mentorship, offering them our support, expertise, and access to our global network. So far, through our global acceleration program, we have invested more than $2.1 mln. If you are part of a blockchain startup and you need acceleration and funding, consider applying for Starfleet. In this regard, here are the “bare minimums” for you to register:

  • Your product has a good blockchain use case.
  • You’re a bootstrapped, early-stage, seed-stage, startup with a small team of founders.
  • You have a minimum viable product (MVP) or a plan for it
  • You have a clear (well, let’s say it’s up to 50%) plan/roadmap for your startup with a go-to-market strategy.

In addition to these, if you are driven with a purpose to make your mark in blockchain history, you are qualified to join us for the accelerator. We will support you with our expertise to build your product to be market-ready. Here’s a glimpse of how we will accelerate your startup when you are selected for the accelerator.

  • Get 60 hours worth of quality mentorship for your accelerator program from industry experts.
  • In addition to these 60 hours, we offer another 4 weeks of online personalized mentoring sessions.
  • Get state-of-the-art marketing support with advisory sessions, assistance in getting media exposure and access to blockchain events.
  • Once you are ready, we will give you access to the æternity ecosystem which will open doors to global partnerships, investors, and the ælumini network.
  • Get an additional 6 months of support from the æternity Starfleet team with respect to the progress made on the project and advisory.
  • Funding of up to $100k to the selected teams.

We have a roadmap that begins with the Genesis Week — a 7-day boot camp that is planned for 2–8th of March 2020. Next is a 4-week mentoring one-on-one session with selected startups. At the beginning of April, the startups will display their progress and the polished ideas in their investment pitch on the final Demo Day. This event will be live-streamed worldwide, so make sure you stay in the loop and don't miss it!

How to sign up?

  • The more complete and to-the-point your application, the better your chances of making the shortlist for the Genesis Week.
  • All the mandatory fields have to be filled. However, if you do not have the content to support this, you can mark it as NA for the moment. But please take note of this: we do need this information to help us shortlist you for the Genesis Week.

You can refer to this video for a better idea of how to fill the form up.

The deadline for the application is February 9, 2020

We’re looking forward to meeting you!
