Moonbeam Accelerator’s ecosystem

An acceleration program that relies on three main edges.

Moonbeam Network

Learn the benefits of growing your project on the most innovative parachain based on Polkadot and Ethereum-compatible.

Rokk3r’s Company Building Experience

Builders first. With 10+ years of company building experience, we know what founders need and how to support them.



Do I need to have a product developed on Moonbeam to apply to Moonbeam Accelerator’s program?

The acceleration program is open to any company that either has a product on Moonbeam Network, or is willing to use Moonbeam for its upcoming development.

What level of “maturity” or development stage is required for startups to participate?

We will consider projects in idea stage and early stage (seed to Series A).

  • For teams in idea stage: The acceleration program will teach you how to validate your idea and help you develop your first MVP on Moonbeam Network.
  • For teams that have an off-chain product, that is, that are not currently using any blockchain but plan to do so: This program will help you make the jump from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0.
  • For teams already using a blockchain for their product, though not on the Moonbeam platform: This accelerator will help you transition to Moonbeam and open the doors to its entire ecosystem.

What industries are considered for the acceleration program?

All industries will be considered for selection, as long as there is a clear business case for building the project on Moonbeam’s parachain.

What are the terms of the initial funding?

Each selected company will receive a cash investment from Arrington Capital upon joining the program. The investment will be in exchange for tokens and/or equity – exact terms will be negotiated depending on the stage of maturity of each company.
Additionally, as a courtesy, Rokk3r and its partners will provide selected companies with a package of services and discounts worth 15,000+ USD.

Is the program open to global teams?

We welcome teams from all over the world.

Who is Rokk3r?

Is the Demo Day guaranteed for all companies?

Companies that show they are ready to have conversations with investors will be invited to pitch at the Demo Day.

What is the selection process like?

Inscriptions are open until February 19th, 2023. Shortlisted projects will be contacted for an interview. After a second round of evaluation, selected teams will be invited for a second interview. Finally, we will notify each team about the final results via e-mail.

What will the 10-week accelerator program’s modality be?

The 10-week accelerator program will be 100% online. Educational content wil be pre-recorded and available on-demand. In addition, teams will have live sessions (at 11 AM or 2 PM EST) with instructors, mentors and companies to discuss any questions or doubts. We will record the classes but we want to you to be fully available and be part of the live sessions.

What if English is not my first language?

We count with multiple mentors, from different nationalities. So knowing English may be a requirement considering that:

  • The second interview process is in English.
  • The program is 100% virtual and asynchronous. All classes and live sessions will be in English.
  • For Demo Day, pitches must be presented in English.
