BlockStart is a pan-European DLT/blockchain acceleration and partnership programme. Its main objective is to facilitate goal-oriented, business-focused, and mutually beneficial partnerships between DLT/blockchain solution providers and end-user SMEs, thus fostering blockchain adoption. BlockStart will support 60 tech startups and 60 end-user SMEs with mentoring, networking, and a total of €795,000 in equity free grants.
In its 2nd Open Call, 10 early stage DLT/blockchain startups from all over the EU and H2020 Associated Countries have been selected to a 6-month immersive acceleration programme. From those, 5 have made it to the Pilot stage of the programme and were given the change to test, validate and implement their blockchain-based solutions in the areas of ICT, retail and fintech by partnering with end-user SMEs, willing to adopt their technology.
On the 30th of June at 3pm CET (Brussels Time), the top 5 startups from BlockStart’s second acceleration programme will present their Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) and the pilots they have implemented in end-user SMEs over the past 6 months.
In addition to the pitch presentations, participants will get the opportunity to learn from the personal experience of a Venture Capital (VC) investing in blockchain projects, that will share tips on getting VC funding, key highlights on funding, maturity, product use cases and success stories in the B2B Blockchain ecosystem.
The Demo Day is free of charge, but registration is mandatory and participants should register here.

BlockStart is run by a team of 3 partners: Bright Pixel, an early-stage VC investor, CIVITTA, a leading innovation management consultancy in the Eastern and Central Europe, and F6S, a global tech founders’ community. This project has received funding from EU’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement no. 828853.
