Event Description

Join us for a special weekend of hacking hosted in partnership with NEAR Horizon! Build on NEAR and the Blockchain Operating System (BOS) to bring your Web3 ideas to life. Winning teams will get an exclusive invitation to participate in our inaugural 3-month Web3 Fellowship Incubator program and access to $20K in NEAR Horizon Credits to turn their hackathon project from prototype to product!

The Web3 Fellowship Incubator will run from July 10th - September 29th. The incubator will include monthly sprints, demo days, mentorship, and more to support the development of your project. Partners in the Web3 ecosystem will provide additional weekly product and technical mentorship as well as disburse project grants.

At the conclusion of the Web3 Fellowship Incubator, graduating teams will have the opportunity to showcase their project at a pitch and demo day to the NEAR team and other investors.

Join the hackathon discord server to participate.
