World-Class Mentors — Web3.0, Application Token Engineering, Tech, Decentralized Governance, and more…
The Octopus Accelerator Program is a collection of open and composable courses and seminars available to Substrate developers and Web3.0 teams worldwide. It’s a quarterly program meant to accelerate the realization of promising blockchain projects into the Web3.0 space.
During our first Octopus Accelerator Course in Fall 2021, many Octopus Network Accelerator founders led their companies to achieve outstanding results, and we are honored to be part of these companies’ history.
Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Fall 2021 Accelerator Program participating founders were able to launch testnets, build communities, and raise funding from leading investors.
The top five graduates of Fall 2021 were each awarded the $50,000 Octopus Start Prize. For the Spring 2022 Batch, Huobi Incubator will also be sponsoring a prize.
Octopus Accelerator Star Prizes + Huobi Incubator Prize
Each Accelerator batch of courses culminates in Showcase Day when the startups present their projects to a carefully selected, invite-only audience.
The judges of Showcase Day will select five projects to receive the Octopus Star Prize of $50,000 worth of grants each. Additionally, the Spring 2022 Batch will offer a $12,500 Huobi Prize presented to one selected team.
