Twice a year, we bring together a highly selective group of founders for an intense 12-week sprint to hone their value proposition, test their assumptions with real customers, and prepare for the next phase of investment and growth. Together with our global network of experts and advisors, our experience building pillars of the core blockchain development suite, and a wide array of industry partners, we help guide founders in building validated, market-ready Web 3.0 businesses.
Tachyon III is a full-time, on-location program bringing 8-12 teams together in New York City from November 2019 through February 2020. Teams will be provided funding, office space, one on one mentorship, and programming around business and blockchain specific issues, culminating in an investor day and post-program fundraising support.
We believe the most substantial impact for Web 3.0 and blockchain technology will be in redefining the relationships between people and our financial systems. While still in its early stages, the Open Financial stack powers trust-minimized financial products for a global set of users. Tachyon III will bring together founders working in this space to build decentralized financial networks and programmable, composable assets and services that will fundamentally reshape the global financial economy.
