Polkadot Blockchain Academy and Brinc Host Web3 Pitch Week


Brinc is pleased to announce the upcoming Brinc and Polkadot Blockchain Academy Web3 Pitch Week, set to take place from July 3rd to July 5th, 2024. The demo days will run daily from 12 pm to 1 pm UTC (8 pm to 9 pm HKT). 

Over the course of three days, 24 startups will present their Web3 solutions across DeFi, Consumer, and Infrastructure applications. Each day will feature eight teams pitching their projects, with a five-minute presentation followed by a two to three-minute Q&A session.

Brinc’s Web3 accelerator program, which began in 2021 with the ZK Advancer program in partnership with Animoca Brands, have supported over 60 Web3 businesses spanning diverse sectors such as DeFi, gaming, infrastructure, MedTech, entertainment, and enterprise applications. By combining the robust investor networks of both Polkadot and Brinc, this event aims to maximize exposure for these startups, potentially leading to significant introductions and investments. This is an exceptional opportunity for founders to pitch their products to a large, engaged audience, gather valuable feedback, and refine their presentations.

“The Polkadot Blockchain Academy is the first of its kind — a classroom-based educational program for software developers which teaches the conceptual underpinnings and the hands-on application of blockchain technology, including content focussed on Polkadot and associated technologies,” says Tim Dobie, Director at Polkadot Blockchain Academy. “The Academy team is excited to collaborate with Brinc to showcase some of the projects which have benefitted from, or have spawned from previous academy waves. We have worked with Brinc previously to bring an Alumni project to their accelerator program and we are excited to further our collaboration.”

Investors, entrepreneurs, and anyone passionate about the future of decentralization are encouraged to attend. This is a unique opportunity to engage with promising Web3 startups and witness firsthand innovations that are shaping the future.
