Applications are open for our Blockchain Bootcamp in collaboration with the Stellar Development Foundation. The Blockchain Bootcamp is designed to give early to mid-stage startups in Africa an opportunity to build on Stellar, an open-source blockchain network for financial services and products.
The three-day virtual bootcamp will result in a demo day where companies with the most promising solutions built on Stellar will receive prizes from 5,000 to 20,000 USDC. There will be opportunities for follow-on funding for additional grants, potential investment from SDF’s Enterprise Fund and other investors who will be present at the demo day.
The bootcamp is a three-day design sprint allowing participating companies to answer critical business questions with hands-on technical support and guidance from members of DFS Lab and SDF. Companies that join the sprint will define a problem, storyboard a solution, and develop a rapid prototype of their innovation. The design sprint will be run virtually and Blockchain Bootcamp will be operating from East Africa Time.
Viable use cases that could be explored are:

Companies could also explore new models across asset management, compliance, NFTs, gaming, charity donations, trade finance, liquidity, and more.
