Today, Keyrock, a leading digital asset market maker, is announcing the selection of eight web3 and Fintech startups for the 1st edition of its acceleration program in partnership with Tenity, a prominent global accelerator and incubator for fintech.
The first edition of Keyrock’s Accelerator Program will start on the 5th of September in Belgium and conclude with a Demo Day event in December 2023. From nearly 200 applications from 36 countries, Keyrock and Tenity carefully evaluated and selected eight innovative startups from five European countries to be part of the first cohort. The program provides an open environment for Keyrock and the selected startups to work closely together, support and learn from each other, and identify potential opportunities for collaboration.
Kevin de Patoul, CEO and co-founder of Keyrock commented: “We are profoundly grateful to have received applications from almost 200 innovative startups, spanning various sectors from around the globe. The process of narrowing this remarkable pool to the final eight was both challenging and inspiring. The selected projects are particularly resonant with Keyrock's vision and have the potential to play an essential role in the tokenized economy.”
