The program’s goal is to assist Web3’s rising stars in exchange for project tokens so that they may increase their visibility in the media, the size of their communities, and the recognition of their brands.
Rapid expansion and a steady stream of new ventures have driven a surge in funding for Web3 initiatives, an industry that has seen investments reach $30 billion in 2021 and roughly $36 billion in 2022.
This is a difficult field rife with competition and a lack of trust from the general audience, even though many Web3 founders have great ideas and a strong value proposition to bring to the space.
Since its founding in 2013, Cointelegraph has amassed a global readership of over 20 million, making it the undisputed leader among media outlets covering digital assets, the metaverse, and emerging technologies.
This company is excited to introduce its Accelerator program to assist other startups in reaching their full potential by utilizing its strengths as a media and strategic partner in content creation, branding, networking, marketing, investor relations, and more.
What exactly is the Cointelegraph Accelerator program?
Cointelegraph Accelerator will draw on the knowledge of the more than 150 people strong international Cointelegraph team, which produces global media in 11 languages.
Decentralized finance, nonfungible tokens, GameFi, Web3 social, cross-chain and layer 2 solutions, and other areas of the broader Web3 industry are the program’s primary focus. Already, it has accepted more than a dozen businesses into its fold and is accepting applications from the general public.
Cointelegraph is unique among accelerator programs because it doesn’t prioritize advisory services or financial investments. Cointelegraph will provide participants with various media products from its ecosystem, such as advertorials, special bespoke projects, educational resources, native content integrations, and more.
The fact that the program’s commercial arm operates independently of Cointelegraph’s editorial staff is one of its primary differentiating factors. Startups can participate in the program in exchange for unique tokens or equity to their projects. Cointelegraph’s interest in the project’s success and the rise in token value will be aligned with the supported teams in this way.
The duration of the program’s strategic support, which can range from nine to twenty-four months, is determined by the startup’s marketing and strategic objectives, as well as its progress on the program’s designated roadmap milestones. With sustainability in mind, Cointelegraph will draw on its extensive partner network to provide a holistic, all-encompassing marketing strategy to back the program’s portfolio of projects.
The specifics of this assistance are tailored to the requirements of each project. Cointelegraph can assist with advertising, branding, and introductions to potential investors, exchanges, mentors, market makers, technological partners, and offline and online events.
Paul Solntsev, Head of Cointelegraph Accelerator, said: “We are excited to expand our product suite with the Accelerator program, bringing more knowledge and education to our worldwide audience, especially regarding emerging tech startups and evolutions in Web3. We welcome companies with strong convictions and innovative projects to apply for the program and join our partner network to bring long-lasting value to the industry.”
How to Get Involved
Cointelegraph is looking to support projects in their early stages of development that have already designed a product ready for market, usually between the pre-seed and Series A stages. It is also necessary to have a well-detailed road map and project documentation that explains how the token will be used.
