As we continue our drive to bolster the next wave of blockchain developers, we are excited to be a part of the India Blockchain Accelerator, in association with Lumos Labs, supporting innovative tech startups. 

The India Blockchain Accelerator, launched by the Indian state government of Telangana along with the Indian crypto unicorn, CoinSwitch Kuber, and innovation management platform Lumos Labs, is an exciting program for developers in India, providing them with access to workshops, business experts, mentorships and other useful tools and tips to become a success in the space. With this accelerator, the Government of Telangana aims to further its commitment to making Telangana the ‘Blockchain Capital of the World’. Nervos joins in as Platinum partners for the program and will be helping grow this program alongside major industry players.

This four-month-long accelerator will be open to early-stage Web2 and Web3 startups and blockchain developers with interesting blockchain solutions solving real-world problems across multiple identified tracks.

By helping drive this accelerator program, Nervos will also expose developers and startups to its powerful interoperability solutions, such as the recently launched Force Bridge, and Godwoken. Nervos will be working closely with developers, helping them with these tools, as well as getting better exposure to the Indian blockchain ecosystem. 

Nervos’ director of business development, Ben Morris, will be joining the launch event virtually on December 17 at 11:15 am IST. He will be speaking alongside others from Stellar, NEO, Filecoin, and Microsoft. To find more information, you can click here.
