International competitions are also planned in #Belgrade, #London and #Tbilisi. Young start-ups can apply from the idea phase to one year after their founding.
The best start-ups will pitch to a jury of experts. The jury members include well-known experts from the blockchain and start-up scene, such as Michael Dorner, CEO of VariusSystems digital solutions, who realised the crypto stamp 3.0 for Österreichische Post AG and #CryptoRobby 🦋 (yes me, happy! 🥳)
The new Block and Start initiative fills a gap: projects on NFTs and #blockchain technology are hardly supported by governments and if so, only with a lot of paperwork. We offer straightforward start-up funding for ideas on #Web3, #NFTs and #metaverse and promote talents, committed teams and convincing stories.
Programme coordinator Enea Alena Kiefer of Validvent: "First-Money-In is a #gamechanger for early stage start-ups and is designed to enable the competition winners to turn their ideas into reality. We also support them with our network and financial and Web3 know-how."
