Season 1 Binance Labs Incubation Program #BUIDLers Season 1
Binance Labs worked with true #BUIDLers of the ecosystem in the Incubation Program Season 1. Are you a BUIDLer? Apply Now to Season 2!
As CZ shared in his year-end letter, 2018 was a hell of a year — for Binance Labs too. And of course — the year of #BUIDL. Since inception, Binance Labs team has been working under the vision of “Realizing the Full Potential of Blockchain Technologies”.
One of our initiatives was the Binance Labs Incubation Program. While many were frustrated by nothing being built in Blockchain, we were extremely excited to see how BUIDLers can #BUIDL working products and services with Product/ Market Fit in just 10 weeks at Binance Labs Incubation Program.
Binance Labs Incubation Program aims to be the strongest network of BUIDLers in Blockchain. From October to December 2018, we had our first ever Binance Labs Incubation Program launched and run for 10 weeks. 8 amazing BUIDLers gathered up in San Francisco, coding day and night and talking to users every day. During the ten weeks, all teams worked under stealth mode to BUIDL the products they believe are most needed in the ecosystem. Binance Labs and the mentors provided all the necessary support — from startup formation, regulatory/legal advice, recruiting, technical execution, fundraising, to marketing/PR and other.
Learn more about the Incubation Program through the video below.
On December. 14th, Binance Labs Incubation Program held the first event called the #BUIDLers Day gathering up private investors and strategic partners in a small space in San Francisco. All 8 teams enjoyed speaking to these investors, and the investors were amazed to see how BUIDLers could BUIDL beautiful products.
In January, all our BUIDLers were in the stage during the Binance Blockchain Week in Singapore, sharing their ideas to the public for the first time ever.
