Base Camp Accelerator Programme is created by Outlier Ventures, Europe’s first venture firm dedicated to blockchain technology. During 2 previous editions of this program 11 of the best early-stage Web 3 projects from around the world had the opportunity to work on refining their pitches, positioning, and developing traction in their product to be in the best possible shape to secure their first token sale or seed round of funding.
How it all started
We applied to Outlier Ventures’ Base Camp accelerator after Hackathon during Diffusion 19 in October 2019. It was a two-day event focusing on the practical application of open-source distributed ledger technology, smart contracts, machine learning, and programmable tokens, to create a new data layer. Over five coders programmers in 10 tracks competed against each other.
Rexs.io team has been awarded the first prize in 2 tracks: Web 2.5: onboarding the rest of the world to decentralized technology and Sharing in Consortia Networks: permissioned, tokenized data sharing with T-Labs, as well as Bronze Runner-Up prize in the general classification.
It took our team 36h to build an award-winning application. The goal was to create an intuitive, low-cost, non-intrusive demonstrator capable of efficiently tackling high velocity, high volume video and data stream, and storage inefficiency of the Ethereum Network.
One year ago during this event our start-up was born. Fast forward one year and in 2020 we once again participate in Diffusion, but this time in a different role. Our CEO, Krzysztof Radecki is a speaker in the “Trust in The New Normal” panel.
Together with 9 other teams from Canada, Brazil, Australia, Finland, Russia and the Philippines we were selected from over 270 applications from all over the world to join the third edition of Base Camp Accelerator. We took part in a 5-month remote program, which is a foundational product development accelerator for decentralised technology.
Thanks to participation in the program, we have a chance to gain business contacts and present ourselves to investors.
Outlier Ventures’ BaseCamp is arguably one of the best DLT/Web3-centric accelerators out there. Not only have they an amazing network of contacts among major VCs and in the media, but they also have the talent to pick out teams that are making headlines within months, like DIA, Weaver Labs, or Biconomy. Applying there was a no-brainer and when we were selected, we were thrilled to be recognized by industry leaders. – Krzysztof Radecki, CEO
