Draper University, a premier pre-acceleration institution in Silicon Valley, has teamed with Neo, a community-driven blockchain platform. The collaboration will include a five-week virtual curriculum that will run from July 18th through August 21st, 2022. Participation in this program by Neo members will give them first-hand exposure to Silicon Valley knowledge.
What the Draper University partnership aims to achieve
Draper University is well-known for its collaborations with start-ups from around the globe. Through this partnership, Neo will continue to encourage entrepreneurship and growth inside and outside the Neo N3 ecosystem. Also, for Neo ecosystem projects, Neo expects the partnership to create more investment and exposure options for VCs.
Neo isn’t a stranger to Silicon Valley and the world of traditional technology. A continuous package of support is available to Neo ecosystem projects. One of those components is a partnership with Draper University. Also, EcoBoost is one of many Neo Global Development-funded programs that have received support totalling more than $200 million.
Seeing the value in traditional tech talents, Neo wants to bring them into the world of cryptocurrency. It fosters enterprises and leading developers who wish to build applications on Neo N3, gives ready-to-use programming tools and supports coding in five languages. As part of its cooperation with Draper University, Neo extended an invitation to certain ongoing and upcoming Neo N3 ecosystem initiatives to submit an application for participation in this program.
This year, the program accepted a total of 15 different projects. These projects include Meta Island, Hacash.Diamond, Rentfuse, Humswap, Bowerbird, GhostMarket, and Supernova. Others include Blockchain Cuties, Ilex, Greenfinch, Neo Dao, Bamboo, Neo Artistic, and ForTheWin. Finally, the cooperation between Draper University and the Neo ecosystem will assist entrepreneurs in improving their knowledge of both traditional and crypto-related technologies. The goal is to help them establish a holistic approach to web3 and ecosystem creation.
