The program aims to help rising Web3 stars build their media presence, community growth, and brand awareness in exchange for Project Tokens.
While many Web3 founders have big ideas and a strong value proposition to bring to the space, this is a tough field riddled with competition and a lack of trust from the wider audience. .
Founded in 2013, Cointelegraph has become a global leader in the digital asset, metaverse and emerging technology media space, with over 20 million readers worldwide.
The company is now looking to help other rising stars reach their full potential and is thrilled to introduce its Acceleration program – a startup booster leveraging the company’s capabilities as a strong media and strategic partner, including content, branding, network, marketing, investor relations and more.
What is the Cointelegraph Accelerator program?
Cointelegraph Accelerator will leverage the expertise of the global Cointelegraph team, which consists of over 150 professionals working and developing global media products in 11 different languages.
The program focuses on decentralized finance, non-fungible tokens, GameFi, Web3 social, cross-chain and Layer 2 solutions, and other segments of the broader Web3 industry. It has already onboarded more than a dozen companies and publicly opened the application process for new applicants.
While many accelerator programs focus on advice, followed by monetary investments, Cointelegraph takes a different route. Participants will be able to receive contributions from Cointelegraph in the form of media products available in our ecosystem, including infomercials, custom special projects, educational materials, native content integrations and more.
One of the key features of the program is that it will be run by a separate business arm, independent from the Cointelegraph editorial team. Startups will be able to participate in the program in exchange for native tokens or equity from their projects, subject to specific conditions. In doing so, Cointelegraph will align its interest in project success and token value growth with the supported teams.
The program’s strategic support will typically last nine to 24 months and will be based on the participating startup’s roadmap milestones, marketing, and strategic goals. With long-term success in mind, Cointelegraph will leverage its extensive network of partners to deliver a comprehensive 360-degree marketing strategy to support the program’s project portfolio.
This support comes in different shapes and forms, depending on the needs of each individual project. Cointelegraph can offer support in marketing, branding and presentations to investors, exchanges, mentors, market makers, technology partners and online and offline events.
Paul Solntsev, Head of Cointelegraph Accelerator, said: “We’re excited to expand our product suite with the Accelerator program, bringing more knowledge and education to our global audience, especially around emerging technology startups and Web3 developments.”
Paul continued: “We invite companies with strong convictions and innovative projects to apply to the program and join our network of partners to bring lasting value to the industry.”
How to participate
Cointelegraph seeks to support projects in their early stages of development that have already designed a market-ready product, typically between pre-seed and Series A stage. A well-defined roadmap and project documentation with a clearly defined utility for the token are also required.
To be part of the Cointelegraph Accelerator program, projects must visit the Accelerator program official website, where they can learn about Cointelegraphs offerings as a recognized media leader and brand building partner. From there they can also apply.
