Most Valuable Builder (MVB), the accelerator program designed to support builders on BNB Chain, a community-driven and decentralised blockchain – seeks applicants from projects for its sixth cohort, Fit for Flight.
The sixth MVB Accelerator Program aims to empower projects who need support in building cutting-edge web3 infrastructure and dApps. The application window will be open from November 2022 to January 2023. Top-quality projects will be selected to join the official program in February 2023.
MVB is co-led by BNB Chain and Binance Labs to help projects deliver a working product all the way to product-market fit. Projects across all stages with a defined vision, innovation, and business plan are encouraged to apply.
MVB VI will provide funding, in addition to tailored curriculums with industry experts, and networking opportunities with market leaders. Additionally, weekly curriculums will include a wide range of topics such as scaling infrastructure, data tooling and analytics, product design, security, tokenomics, and fundraising. At the end of the program, top-performing projects will be invited to a demo day. There, they will showcase their products and vision, and also receive potential investments from Binance Labs.
Alvin Kan, ecosystem director at BNB Chain said:
“MVB VI is all about helping aspiring developers and entrepreneurs in building a decentralised, secure, and composable internet. MVB seasons have drawn a diverse range of developers from key areas. These include infrastructure, DeFi, GameFi, SocialFi, in addition to the metaverse, NFTs, sustainable tech, etc., fueling innovation in the web3 space.
“We create the perfect atmosphere for entrepreneurs. They can focus on building by providing integrated support on financing, go-to-market, security, and performance.”
Growing the blockchain industry
The BNB Chain ecosystem has more than 1,400 active dApps across multiple categories. These include DeFi, metaverse, as well as blockchain games, NFT, and more. Since its launch in 2020, BNB Chain has processed over three billion transactions.
Tyler Z, investment director at Binance Labs, said: “Binance Labs aims to help grow the wider blockchain industry by empowering entrepreneurs, startups, and communities, through social engagement, technical support, and investment.
“This mission is manifested in MVB. Here, the best and the brightest projects building on the BNB Chain will form a cohort. As a result of the program, they will learn, improve, and grow in developing the next generation of web3 innovations.”
