There is no fee to participate. However, depending on where you are in the process of incorporation, legal fees may be incured. In this case, the fee will only be charged after the startup received the investment.
Our accelerator program is 100% remote. You are not required to be onsite for the program.
Our program includes one month of preparation to the program and 3 months of hands-on support from The Blox team and partners to bootstrap the projects. During the program, we provide support on Product-market-fit, Go-to-market strategy, Marketing, Community development, UI/UX Design, Tokenomics, Product launch (MVP), Mentor & Investor connections, Key resources and documentations, Live workshops and support. You also get acces to our network of +60 world-class mentors, +1,200 investors (VCs and BAs), and programs' alumni.
Our typical Boot Camp program lasts 3-months. However, we sometimes work with more advanced projects that require to be supported for a longer period of time. In this specific case, we support project during an average period of 6 to 12 months.
The Blox is an international Web3 accelerator based in Paris and Toronto. We have a strong network of partners both in Europe adn North America. However, The Blox is a GAN Accelerator. The GAN Community is the largest accelerator network which includes partners and investors in over +120 cities on six continents. With that kind of leveraging power, we can support market access worldwide.
Our investment tickets vary depending on the program. Please find out about specific program details on the dedicated pages of the website. Grants also vary depending on the program but are usually non-negotiable.
After the accelerator program, you will have the opportunity to pitch your project to an investment committee on Demo Day to get a chance to get funded. Ticket sizes vary depending on the advancement of the project and other criteria.
We invest in pre-seed and seed rounds. This means your project may or may not necessarily have an MVP ready yet.
We cannot provide a definite answer to this question as it very much depends at which stage your startup is and on other metrics we would need to assess to determine its valuation. When a startup joins our program on a predetermined basis (investment thesis) the terms are layed out in the program detail.
We support our startups for the long-term and during their different development stages. We may exit when a liquidity event that makes sense to us occurs. (Later-stage priced rounds, IPO)
Yes, startups can receive investments outside of the accelerator in very specific cases. However, the vast majority of investments that startups receive happen through our accelerator program.
We are looking for early stage founders willing to bootstrap their project and target a seed round. However, we also accompany projects that already closed a seed-round to help them succeed in their Series-A funding round. We consider that projects are too late after closing their Serie-A funding round.
So far, our average acceptance rate revolves around 6%.
If it makes sense for you to apply for a new program, we won't necesserily object. You should double-check the terms of your previous accelerator to ensure that no clause exists to prevent you from joining a new accelerator. Moreover, we ask founders to be fully committed to our accelerator program and wouldn't accept that you participate in two programs simultaneously..
We typically notify applicants within three weeks after the application deadline. Our team will email you whether or not your application has been accepted.
