June 5, 2019 - Binance Labs, the venture arm of leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance, today announced the 13 newest projects to graduate from its incubation program. With regional chapters on three continents, the Binance Labs Incubation Program focuses on helping top founders bootstrap and achieve product-market fit in the global blockchain landscape.
“For the Binance Labs Incubation Program, we search all over the world for the strongest founders and projects to invest in,” said Ella Zhang, Head of Binance Labs. “We are proud to have found 13 gems in Season II, and to have spent the past 10 weeks working with the BUIDLers to launch their demos and gained early traction.”
Launched last year, the Binance Labs Incubation Program is an onsite program designed to invest in and help entrepreneurs deliver products with clear product-market fit, as well as tangible solutions that provide sustainable growth of the global blockchain ecosystem. Season 2 of the incubation program began in March 2019 and concludes on June 7, 2019, during BUIDLers Day, an invite-only pitch event where the project teams will meet with investors from the ecosystem.
