As reported in The Irish Times, Techstars will be launching a blockchain focused incubator in Dublin from March 2022.
The program aims to bring on ten companies per year focused on blockchain or tokenization and put them through an intensive mentoring program to help bring their products or services to market. The incubator had originally been planned for London, but for various reasons Dublin was chosen instead, which is a great boost to the local crypto ecosystem.
The announcement quotes Techstars CEO, Maëlle Gavet as saying “The strong growth of the Irish startup ecosystem in recent years alongside the long-standing presence of the leading global tech firms in Ireland make Dublin an attractive talent hub for Techstars. In 2022, Techstars is expecting to invest in 100+ companies in Europe, representing 20% of our total planned investments through our accelerator programs alone, further reinforcing our commitment to growth in the region”
This incubator isn’t limited to Irish based companies, and is open to companies from across the world. The deadline for applications is 1st December 2021, and you can apply at https://www.f6s.com/launchpool-web3-accelerator-2022/apply
