Who can apply for Web3 Bootcamp?
Web3.0 startups from any field. However, there are two key requirements: the product must be at least at the stage of full-fledged MVP and production. One of the founders must be a Ukrainian. The bootcamp is designed with a focus on the challenges and difficulties that already launched projects with established teams go through. In this case, you will be able to get the most value out of your participation.
If I don't have an MVP and my team is only at the formation stage, can I apply?
Regrettably, no. This bootcamp was designed specifically for later-stage startups. SET University is actively working on other programs for projects of different levels.
For the Web3 Bootcamp, we are looking for already-formed teams, and the minimum requirement for the product is to have a demo version or MVP close to production.
What is the workload within Web3 Bootcamp?
For two weeks, about 5 hours a day within the bootcamp itself and another 4 hours to complete tasks and find solutions. The workload is high, and SET University asks you to take this into account when applying for the bootcamp. Participants must commit to attending classes without missing a class and in accordance with the schedule.
What is the format of the Bootcamp?
Web3 Bootcamp is based on the principles of Service Design and active interaction of participants within and between teams. The first part of the program will be devoted to finding solutions with minimal involvement of mentors in the format of short consultations, facilitation, and validation of team developments.
The second part will consist of lectures and the final pitching in the metaverse. All activities will take place online.
Will you invest in my startup?
No, we will not invest in the businesses. However, we will work to bring investors and other funds (from Ukraine and internationally) to evaluate businesses for investment.
How do you select startups?
The selection is based on open competition. Each team/project/etc. fills out an application form, and based on this information, a team of Ukrainian and international experts makes a decision on the project’s admission.
We encourage you to fill out the application form in accordance with all the requirements and provide comprehensive information.
