ZILHive is part of Zilliqa's ecosystem growth arm with the aim of supporting projects built on Zilliqa. Other than ZILHive Accelerator, ZILHive runs an incubator program, a grants program, education programs such as student practicums, and ZILHive Ventures.
ZILHive Accelerator is a global virtual 6 months accelerator program that works with startups who are looking to use the Zilliqa protocol to build their blockchain solutions. We support startups through their innovation journey with Masterclasses, Workshops, Mentorship, and others. The program itself is split into three phases, Building (Improving your product), Demo Day & Fundraising, and finally the Introductions phase. More details can be found below.
Upon the conclusion of the accelerator programme, the startups part of our programme will be introduced to our ZILHive Ventures team. If selected, startups can expect to receive up to US$100K of equity funding. Our portfolio companies include Mintable and Xanpool amongst others. ZILHive Ventures also provides follow-on funding of a bigger ticket size for exceptional companies.
The previous ZILHive Accelerator Batch was completed with 8 companies from 7 different countries alongside 25 blockchain mentors. ZILHive 20/21 focused on primarily four key areas: stablecoins, digital identity, DeFi and payments.
