The Blockchain Stream is suited to visionary, coachable founders building technologies across the blockchain technology stack. This stream is tailored towards early-stage companies (early venture or growth) or even projects (pre-incorporation); however, startups at all levels of maturity will be considered.
The list above is not exhaustive.
The CDL Blockchain Stream admits one cohort annually at CDL-Toronto. For more information or to schedule an introductory meeting with the CDL team, email contact email@example.com
CDL mentors include accomplished entrepreneurs, experienced operators, and active angel and venture capital investors. Mentors meet every eight weeks to help founders set objectives over the program’s 10-month duration.
Startups accepted to the CDL Blockchain Stream benefit from advising sessions with economists who are experts in market-design and crypto-economics. These experts help to evaluate approaches to building technology, suggest improvements, and to explore formal advising engagements.
