BNB Chain and Binance Labs officially announced the launch of the BNB Incubation Alliance (BIA). This initiative aims to support the growth of early-stage blockchain projects by collaborating with top venture capitalists (VCs), incubators, and developer communities. The BIA will fast-track Web3 innovations through a series of global events.

Program Highlights
A notable feature of the BNB Incubation Alliance is the opportunity for winning projects to be fast-tracked into the prestigious Most Valuable Builder (MVB) program. Additionally, successful projects can receive BNB Chain grants, access to the Launch-as-a-Service (LaaS) package, and potential investment opportunities from Binance Labs.

How the BNB Incubation Alliance Works
The BNB Incubation Alliance will host primarily offline events globally. These events will focus on early-stage projects, selected by BNB Chain, Binance Labs, and their partners which include top VCs and incubators.
- Selection Criteria: Projects should be in the incubation stage, characterized by metrics such as pre-product launch or shortly post-launch, limited team size, or historical fundraising valuation. Applications for the BNB Incubation events can be submitted [here](#).
- Judging and Awards: A panel of judges from the co-hosts and co-organizers will evaluate and score the projects. The awards include:
 - 1st Award: Direct admission to MVB, LaaS package, potential Binance Labs investment opportunities, and BNB Chain grants.*
 - 2nd Award: Priority consideration for MVB admission, BNB Chain grants,* and LaaS package.
 - 3rd Award: Priority consideration for MVB admission and LaaS package.
