Tatum and StartupYard Launch Business Acceleration Program for Blockchain Founders

We are inviting all the blockchain founders looking to raise their first round of funding to apply for the Tatum Blockchain Accelerator Powered by StartupYard.

Unlike most crypto accelerators, our program is business-centric, chain-agnostic and has 10 years of experience in accelerating early-stage startups.

Tatum is the world’s fastest way to build, test and run blockchain apps. We offer the most flexible platform for developers to turn their blockchain ideas into reality fast. It simplifies complex blockchain operations into single lines of code, streamlining the entire web3 development process. From common blockchain operations to powerful pre-built smart contracts, gas fee payment solutions, real-time alerts, virtual accounts, out-of-the-box crypto-exchange functions, and an unbreakable key management system, Tatum’s unique features can reduce development time by as much as 90%. More than 70,000 projects and developers are using Tatum on 40+ different blockchains.

StartupYard has been accelerating startups since 2011 by giving them access to new customers, partners and investors. We are the longest running accelerator in CEE and since we started we have invested in 21 countries, our 92 startups have raised over €100m so far, employed more than 1,500 people and reached customers around the globe.

Together StartupYard and Tatum are bringing their business expertise and network to help blockchain founders navigate the hurdles of building a company from scratch.
