Recap on Alpha Incubate
Alpha Incubate is a one-stop station for builders by builders. Our vision for Alpha Incubate is to create a community of builders that focuses on long-term innovation rather than just speculating and pushes the boundaries of Web3 by creating solutions around real world use cases.
If you have not read our blog on Alpha Venture DAO’s incubator arm, see here.
Projects that apply to ‘Alpha Incubate’, our incubation program, will go through a ‘high standard of evaluation process’. This process ensures that the projects incubated by us have a strong product-market fit and bring real value to the Web3 space.
Projects that pass our evaluation process will gain valuable experience by being mentored directly by the Alpha Network, a growing community of top-minds in Web3 that includes Jason Choi, Darryl Wang, John Robert, and many others, as well as receive a variety of benefits such as exclusive technical and infrastructure support from our partners, including Amazon AWS, SlowMist, Terraform Labs, and PeckShield. Today, we'll introduce you to some of Alpha Network's members and partners, and what the Alpha Incubate has to offer.
See full list of Alpha Network and Partners here.
Alpha Network & Our Partners
Alpha Network is a growing community of real value-add networks of stakeholders in Web3 that incubatees can leverage. We vet and curate this network of successful startup founders, operators, company builders, and experienced investors to help advise our incubatees. These members are those who want to contribute their know-how and act as evangelists for our incubatees.
The 8 weeks program that our incubatees will go through consists of weekly masterclasses, mentorship hours, progress review calls, fireside chats, and community events. For more details on how Alpha Network and our partners assist us with this, see here.
Live video sessions taken by Alpha Network & our partners on business fundamentals covering a series of topics such as product, technical, community building, marketing, hiring, tokenomics, fundraising, etc. Incubatees can access the content on Alpha Venture DAO private platform.
Alpha team will pair incubatees with their preferred mentors from Alpha Network and our partners. Incubatees can book mentorship hours every week within the program and even after the program.
Exclusive small group events hosted for incubatees to connect and rub shoulders with industry titans. This is to provide unique access to networking opportunities for incubatees; build relationships between Alpha Venture DAO & eminent people. The topics for the event can be thematic (current industry theme), tactical/strategic (CEO focused), technical (CTO focused).
