Polygon x Base Camp Accelerator Launched By Outlier Ventures

Outlier Ventures is growing the Web3 industry’s biggest multi-chain ecosystem of startups, investors, and experts. To follow up on the success of the Polkadot (DOT/USD) and Filecoin (FIL/USD) Base Camp accelerators, Outlier is currently accepting applications for its third ecosystem cohort: the Polygon x Base Camp Accelerator. In 2021, the Polygon (MATIC/USD) ecosystem arose as a central node for scaling Ethereum-based applications (ETH/USD). The ecosystem has a value of over $10 billion.

The initiative seeks to assist creators with the creation and deployment of new tokens, fundraising efforts, community expansion, governance, and new business model development. The accelerator will also provide a toolbox of user-centered design options based on the concept of data, identity, and finance sovereignty to entrepreneurs building their products inside the Open Metaverse thesis of Outlier Ventures.

Founder and CEO of Outlier Ventures, Jamie Burke, had this to say about the partnership: “Polygon has helped us take the Web3 ecosystem to the next level, making completely new use cases conceivable that demand ultra-low-cost and high throughput transactions.”

Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal chimed in with the following comment: “It’s critical to support and promote Polygon’s development as the network becomes more and more important as the Web 3 grows. As the leading Ethereum scalability and infrastructure development solution. Polygon’s inclusion in Outlier’s newest Accelerator program makes us very happy. Our expectations are high, based on the past accelerators’ achievements, that this program will uncover Polygon’s greatest assets for promoting developer engagement and accelerating ecosystem development.”

The intensive program will begin in the following year; It will allow up to eight teams.
