Details of EkoLance Partnership with Blockchain Founders Group

EkoLance's partnership with Blockchain Founders Group represents a significant step forward in EkoLance's mission to support the next generation of blockchain entrepreneurs. 

The collaboration entails identifying and supporting talented entrepreneurs and innovative projects for their respective programs.

Members of the BFG community who are not yet ready for BFG’s accelerator programs can now participate in hackathons hosted on the techFiesta platform. These hackathons offer a unique opportunity for participants to practice, refine their projects, and secure their first grants. By participating in these events, they gain valuable hands-on experience and prepare their projects for the next level by applying for BFG's accelerator programs.

BFG's accelerator programs are designed to support early-stage startups in the MVP phase, providing masterclasses, mentoring, industry connections, and financial support of up to €120,000 per project. 

"Blockchain Founders Group is proud to join forces with EkoLance, leveraging our combined efforts to turn visionary ideas into viable projects. This partnership not only provides aspiring entrepreneurs with hands-on experience but also creates a pipeline of innovative projects ready for our accelerator programs." — Jona Hauch, Business Developer, Blockchain Founders Group

To enhance the impact of these hackathons, BFG will conduct a series of continuous workshops aimed at turning promising projects into successful startups. These workshops will cover crucial topics such as idea validation, business plan development, securing funding, and navigating common obstacles. The inaugural session will take place on May 16, with future workshops to be announced via EkoLance’s social media platforms.
