Tatum, the company drastically simplifying blockchain applications development, announced it has partnered with StartupYard to accelerate business success and time-to-market for early-stage fintech and Web 3.0 startups through the Tatum Blockchain Accelerator. The program addresses technology and business factors that often inhibit or impair Web 3.0 and digital finance startups.
“Many innovative and promising Web 3.0 and digital finance companies never make it to market due to a combination of decisive business and technical factors,” said Jiri Kobelka, co-founder and chief executive officer, Tatum. “Tatum has long bridged the difficult technical gap in creating or integrating blockchain to applications, and, now, joining with StartupYard, we address the other common factors that prevent great ideas and interesting companies from success.”

“Blockchain is an essential element for many of today’s digital businesses, but adding it may add considerable expense and lengthen the time it takes to get to market, perhaps undermining a company’s hopes and business plan,” said Cedric Maloux, managing director, StartupYard. “We have an excellent track record of launching great companies, and, by partnering with Tatum, we can help startups avoid sometimes insurmountable blockchain issues.”
Eligibility for the Tatum Blockchain Accelerator requires that a company is developing an application or service in Web 3.0, Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), Digital Wallets, Digital Contracts or other digital business and digital finance. Companies must be working on any blockchain protocol, preferably Ethereum Virtual Machine or compatible protocols. In addition, the first iteration of the application should live on or about to go live on Testnet. Candidate companies are selected jointly by Tatum and StartupYard.
There is no upfront charge for the program. Instead, StartupYard issues a capped convertible note valued at €40,000 for participation in the Tatum Blockchain Accelerator. The cap depends on the stage of the startup, but typically varies between €800,000 and €1.5m with a 20% discount. The convertible note is valid for 18 months.
The Tatum Blockchain Accelerator is backed by top Central European Venture Capital firms including, Credo Ventures, Rockaway Capital, Depo Ventures and Purple Ventures. The program also already includes a number of active angel investors. It is a program designed by tech founders for tech founders.
