Meet Our Launching Customers

We bring your first customers.

All challenges are formulated and supported by one or more launching customers, aiming to together take your solution to the next level.

Visit the challenge pages for more information on their respective goals.

F.A.Q. INCUBATION

Out of 64 participating teams in the April 2018 Hackathon, 14 have found funding and are in pre-production or production mode, often with their launching customer.

Some of our notable alumni are:

  • Kryha. Won the 2018 Hackathon by combining blockchain and AI to create intelligent drone swarms for search and rescue operations. They were recently invited to speak about GREX, the decentralized hivemind, at the MIT Robotics Symposium.
  • Unchain created a system for tracking and identifying expired or counterfeit drugs in Africa, helping to prevent the annual €33 bln medical fraud and streamlining humanitarian aid operations.
  • Lemon Care uses blockchain to enable the interoperability of medical records and prevent medical data loss. Their project Hospital at Home is supported by University Medical Center Groningen.

You qualify by either winning your challenge or getting selected by a Super Accelerator.

Yes, of course! Last season, we helped a total of 16 non-winners by connecting them to experts, potential clients, and funding.

Nothing. There is no fee or share involved. Together with our partners and the ecosystem, we want you to succeed. That’s why all partners are willing to provide you with this ‘highest-chance-of-success program’.

No. This is a Decentralized Program with an enormous value for your development (we think) but you are not obliged to participate or sign anything when participating.
