Binance Labs, the accelerator and venture capital of Binance, has announced the 12 project teams that will be participating as finalists in the Most Valuable Builder (MVB) Program. The MVB is an accelerator program aimed at developing the BNB Chain ecosystem. The 11-week MVB Accelerator Program Season 6 will commence on April 17th, with the curriculum designed to meet the changing requirements of Web 3.0 founders. The program provides investment and in-depth sessions with industry experts to help emerging projects reach their full potential, as well as technical guidance for onboarding and scaling on the BNB Chain, and developing products that meet product-market fit.

In this season, each project team will receive personalized advice from a dedicated MVB mentor, and Binance Co-Founders will be hosting exclusive masterclasses for MVB VI's cohort. Yi He, Binance Co-Founder and Head of Binance Labs will lead a masterclass on Building Culture, Teams and Marketing, while Co-Founder and CEO of Binance, CZ (Changpeng Zhao) will hold an Off the Record session to wrap up Season 6 masterclasses.

The MVB Accelerator Program received over 1,500 applications this season, with 12 teams admitted after a highly selective process that admitted less than 1% of the total applicant pool.

The 12 MVB Season VI Accelerator teams are building across Infrastructure to Application Layers, and they include:

  • Kinza, a lending protocol built for a reliable DeFi ecosystem that aims to connect demand and supply of liquidity to create the best on-chain money market.
