Statement from Gwendolyn Regina, Director at BSC Accelerator Fund
The Director at the BSC Accelerator Fund, Gwendolyn Regina, stated out that, “Nascent projects deserve support in terms of funding and mentoring to grow and scale. With development focused and technology driven initiatives, the BSC ecosystem is now an ocean of opportunities for developers and entrepreneurs to leverage. By providing acceleration, bug bounties and incubation opportunities, we’re setting a runway for BSC projects to take off.”
The BSC’s Acclerator Fund initiative will establish interactive discourses with the founders, builders, investors as well as industrial experts for the open network base Projects will be coordinated with mentors on the basis of specific hurdles confronted. Post considering the background, expertise and knowledge mentors will be elected according to the project’s necessities.
“Builders are the lifeblood of this industry, and a little mentoring and education can make the difference to empower them to build a better, fairer, more decentralized world”–Patrick Collins, Chainlink Labs.
This incubation drive will be also divided into structured multiple segments that will aid the projects for seeking on the industrial expertise, one-on-one mentoring, community aids and fundraising.
After thorough due diligence BSC will support projects with a multitude of programs and events including MVBIII Monthly Stars Workshop, BSC Project Spotlight articles, AMAs, Airdrops, Demo Day on Binance Live, and more.
With projects being fixated on structuring the sustainable business models and unit economics, many do not have the resources and means to fetch funds with different priorities at hand; BSC will connect eminent venture capitalists and investment firms with the projects for potential funding.
The fundraising can also comprise off the seed fundings upto $1M under the $100M fund set-up to boost the BSC ecosystem.
