ICP Launching Accelerator in Portugal

Lisbon, Portugal, June 21st, 2024, Chainwire


Internet Computer Protocol (ICP) is set to launch the ICP Hub Accelerator Program 2024, designed to assist early-stage blockchain projects in transforming their concepts into market-ready solutions. This initiative aims to build a robust ecosystem of blockchain innovators, fostering technological advancements within the ICP community.

This program is more than just an accelerator; it supports successful applicants through every stage, from the initial idea to a fully realised solution on the Internet Computer. The ICP team aims to build a vibrant ecosystem of blockchain innovators ready to drive change and push the boundaries of technological possibilities.

Waves3 Accelerator Program 2024: Program Overview

The Waves3 Accelerator Program 2024 offers a structured path for blockchain projects, guiding participants through technology development and scaling. This comprehensive, two-phase program provides a roadmap from ideation to market entry, tailored to meet the specific needs of each project.

ICP Hub Portugal Accelerator Program 2024 Structure

The program starts with Phase 1, which focuses on turning the user's idea into a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). This phase is self-paced, allowing applicants to absorb foundational knowledge and apply it to their project in a way that works best for them. Over the course of 90 days, participants will engage in a series of educational sessions, workshops, and mentorship opportunities aimed at refining their ideas and kickstarting the development process.

Phase 1 of the launch will be kickstarted by a hackathon which is organised in partnership with Open Internet Summer. Teams from around the world will participate in bringing their ideas to life, to gain visibility, find blockchain developer talent and potentially funding in the form of grants from DFINITY or investors such as Lunar Capital.

Weekly feedback reviews will provide valuable feedback from peers and mentors, helping to hone the concept and strategy of each project. Additionally, each project will be asked to document its journey through weekly progress blogs or vlogs, enhancing visibility and community engagement. To ensure builders are incentivized to grow, teams that show progress through weekly check-ins receive hands-on, including introduction to needle-moving players and growth opportunities.

Successful completion of Phase 1 opens the door to Phase 2, where the focus shifts to scaling the project and preparing for market entry. This phase combines online and offline activities, offering advanced business development support, market positioning strategies, and preparation for a token launch.

Furthermore, in-depth workshops will cover crucial topics like tokenomics, compliance, marketing strategies, and user experience design, equipping attendees with the knowledge to take their projects to the next level. Community engagement will play an important role as projects receive feedback and support from the ICP community, culminating in final presentations and proposals for token launches on the Service Nervous System (SNS).

One of the standout features of the ICP Hub Accelerator Program 2024 is its flexibility. Recognising that participants come from diverse backgrounds and stages of development, the program allows Phase 1 and Phase 2 to run concurrently. This means that while newcomers are getting up to speed, more mature projects can dive straight into the advanced activities of Phase 2. This parallel structure ensures that every participant receives the personalised support they need to succeed.

Post-Graduation Support

Upon graduating from Phase 2, successful projects will be integrated into the ICP ecosystem and will receive ongoing support and visibility from ICP Hub Portugal. This includes access to a network of investors, strategic partnerships, and continuous community engagement. Funding support is also a key component, with milestone-based disbursements ensuring accountability and steady progress.

The ICP Hub Portugal Accelerator Program 2024 is more than just a stepping stone; it's a launchpad for outstanding blockchain projects. With a commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion, the program actively seeks applications from a broad range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. The goal is to create a rich environment where different viewpoints converge to drive development in the blockchain space.
