Beacon is a 3 month program that runs twice per year - one Fall cohort and one Summer cohort. Currently, each cohort consists of 10-20 companies.
Our program is designed to be remote-first, allowing us to accept only the best projects from all over the world.
We offer standard investment terms for all companies accepted into Beacon. We invest $250k at an $8m post-money valuation into every project.
Each company works with a dedicated core team member who will be responsible for checking in with their founders on a weekly basis. Mentors will work with their team to set relevant KPIs and measure their progress over the 3-month program.
Founders get access to our internal platform of Beacon founders and investors as well as Slack and Telegram groups specific to their sub-vertical within Web3.
Beacon’s core team hosts group office hours every week, allowing companies facing similar challenges to connect and problem solve collectively.
Our accelerator offers a full suite of web3-specific resources for founders: standardized legal counsel, market making and exchange listing advice, strategic marketing support, among other sources.
Every week, we bring in founders across web3 who have built great companies to talk to our cohorts. Our founder talks are based around case studies where visiting speakers share the greatest challenges they faced in a candid and open environment.
