Announcing the Encode x Tezos Accelerator

About Tezos

Tezos is smart money, redefining what it means to hold and exchange value in a digitally connected world. A self-upgradable and energy-efficient blockchain with a proven track record, Tezos seamlessly adopts tomorrow’s innovations without network disruptions today. Read more here.

Concept

When great projects finish hackathons, they have a lot of potential to keep building but are often not ready for the commitment of going full-time. We wanted to create a programme to help them get to the next stage. We also wanted all teams to build on one platform together so they could enjoy the camaraderie, support and feedback from other teams at the same stage, as well as constant 1–1 support from their mentors at Encode. Hence, the Encode Accelerator was born!

Applying

Applications for the Tezos Accelerator are open now.

You can apply here.

Make sure to apply soon because applications will only stay open Sunday, 26th June!
