Watch BlockStart’s Q&A Webinar to learn more about the project and how to apply to our Open Call #3

In this Webinar, Nadine Teles and João Fernandes, part of the team behind BlockStart, presented BlockStart’s Acceleration Programme and the guidelines and procedures when applying for its Open Call #3, the final one. They showed the steps future applicants should take to apply and tips to choose the right track, based on lessons learned from Open Call #1 and #2.

Former alumni from BlockStart’s 1st Pilot stage – Datarella, startup developer, and Go Limpets, SME adopter of blockchain technology – were also invited to provide their testimonials of what is like to be part of the teams selected and how their companies have grown with the programme. Philipp Kothe, Blockchain Architect at  Datarella, spoke about Datarella’s blockchain solution development in BlockStart and how they were able to achieve all technology and business goals and KPIs during their acceleration process. Vitor Vieira, Co-founder of Go Limpets, also provided a very interesting feedback on their experience in the programme as an SME adopter and very insightful tips on how we should look at the power of data and data trust nowadays.

At the end of the Webinar, there was time for Q&A, and several future applicants’ questions were answered. As this will be BlockStart’s last Open Call, preparation is key when applying to our Acceleration Programme, as this will be blockchain startups and end-user SMEs willing to implement blockchain last chance to apply!
