A month ago we closed our first call for proposals. Blockchers received 70 proposals from 18 different countries in Europe. Only 12 will be invited to access our Inmersion stage beginning in September. This represents around a 17% of success rate for our first attempt to engage with top blockchain companies in Europe. The countries among those proposals have been, in alphabetical order, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland and United Kingdom.
We are really happy with the response achieved. Winners will be informed in the coming days. Blockchers first call got an interesting amount of proposals which presented use cases of blockchain technologies across different domains, rather than the traditional sector. Here’s a snapshot of the distribution across domains:
Call for proposals
Blockchers is now finalising the evaluation process and will be informing the applicants in the coming days. Selected companies will be made public after all legal details are sorted out during the summer period. Up to 12 companies will be invited to join our Inmersion stage of the programme, which will consist of several trainings and a major event in Budapest during the 9th and 10th of October. During the event we will re-evaluate the companies after a technical assessment of their solutions but also their business and pitching skills to help scaling their products based in blockchain solutions.
Given the impressive response, we will also be offering free services to additional partners. Those services will be offered directly by the consortium (trainings, discounts in events…) but also by or partners network. We invite you all to check the closed partnerships with companies like Amazon Web Services, Publicize.co, Jelurida, Agora Chain, etc.
If you did not have the chance to apply to our first open call, be aware we will be opening a new call during the first quarter of 2020. Stay tuned and join our Telegram channel.
