Hello Beacon Community, 

We hope you're well. It's been a month filled with action and progress here at Beacon. Let's dive into what we've been up to!

Meet Our New Mentors

Over the coming months, we’ll be formally introducing Beacon’s Mentors and announcing some exciting new additions to the community. This past June, we were thrilled to welcome five of the brightest minds in web3 to the network of Beacon Mentors:

Web3 Masterclasses

Beacon’s Masterclasses are a series of lessons to web3 founders based on the inspiring stories, learnings, and journeys of successful web3 founders. This month, we published two insightful masterclasses for our community:

  • Focus and Vision with Sota Watanabe: In this masterclass, Sota of Astar Network shared his insights on the importance of aligning a company's culture and vision. Check out the masterclass here.
  • Building a Web3 Community with Sandeep Nailwal: Sandeep, Co-Founder of Polygon, discussed his strategies for community building, offering valuable tips for web3 founders. Dive into the masterclass.

Beacon Cohort S23 Demo Day

Mark your calendars for the Beacon Cohort S23 Demo Day on August 9! This August, our current cohort will be showcasing their innovative projects to  investors. If you’re an investor at a fund actively deploying into web2, you can register for S23's Demo Day here.

Our Demo Days are exclusive, invite-only events attracting the top investors in web3. During our previous Demo Day for Cohort 0, we had 13 incredible crypto startups pitch live and introduce themselves to the world.  Read more about our last showcase here. 

Upcoming Beacon Cohort Applications

Keep an eye out for our next Beacon cohort application opening in mid-August, shortly after Demo Day. More information will be shared soon. To be sure you are notified when formal applications are live, subscribe to future newsletters here.

That's all for now. We are thrilled to continue providing valuable resources and support to our Beacon community, and we thank you for your continued engagement. Stay tuned for future updates!
