Giving Education to Fintech and Blockchain start-ups
Token Economy Association is pleased to announce their partnership with Tribe Accelerator. Both parties will look to drive education of both FinTech and Blockchainprogrammes for start-ups, as well as act as another key catalyst for the mass adoption of blockchain in Singapore.
Tribe Accelerator is the First Blockchain Accelerator Supported by a Singapore Government Agency. Tribe Accelerator is a product development focused blockchain accelerator that aims to provide promising startups a hyperconnected platform to develop and implement their solutions through our network of partners worldwide.
Token Economy Association Singapore is a non-profit and cross-industry platform to support the growth of the digital assets industry, by increasing trust through enhancing standards on transparency, education and accountability in the blockchain-based token economy.
Educating the startups
The partnership will see Tribe Accelerator share their expertise on venture capitalism as part of the programmes. As part of the partnership, members of Tribe Accelerator will serve as mentors, and sit on the judging panel for assessment projects, as well as for the hackathon, which marks the culmination of the FinTech Fundamentals Programme. Promising projects from the hackathon will get an opportunity to advance on to the Tribe Accelerator, Singapore’s first government backed blockchain accelerator.
“TEA Singapore is pleased to be able to bring Tribe Accelerator onboard as one of the key contributors towards the two training programmes. As Singapore’s first government-backed blockchain accelerator, the expertise that they bring to the programme will be very beneficial to developing the knowledge and expertise of our students, and towards the education of the blockchain, and FinTech industry in Singapore, and the region,” said Chia Hock Lai, Chairman of TEA Singapore.
“Tribe Accelerator is focused on grooming the next generation of start-ups, and partnering with TEA Singapore will provide us with another channel to ensure that we continue to empower young entrepreneurs through education, networking and mentorship,” said Ryan Chew, Managing Partner of Tribe Accelerator.
