The new Blockchain Propulsion accelerator program will support startups in the field of blockchain. Startups are often too tech-heavy. This program will now offer them specialist expertise in area such as strategy and marketing as well as in navigating complex regulatory hurdles. Various different partners are on board to provide these services. They include Espeo, Blockchain, ChainSecurity, blockimmo, STX.SWISS and THE RELEVANCE HOUSE. The program is also backed by the Greater Zurich Area (GZA), the cantons of Zug and Uri, the Crypto Valley Association (CVA) and Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE).
The headquarters of Blockchain Propulsion are in Greater Zurich. Through this program, Propulsion Hubs will also be set up in Brazil, China, India, Japan and the United Arab Emirates. Over the course of the year, further hubs will be opening in Japan, Singapore, South Korea and the USA. These hubs will make not only professional support available to selected startups, but also affordable workspaces.
