MSL: Filecoin Techstars Accelerator
The virtual office is the mainstay for many blockchain-based companies. Mint State Labs is no stranger to online meetings while meandering the world’s time zones. With team members from Europe to the United States, the distance between us hasn’t slowed us down. But, for the first time we’re getting a chance to be under one roof, and there’s something awesome bringing us together.
Techstars is an operational investor with one goal, to help entrepreneurs succeed. In 2007, Techstars hosted their first Accelerator program and has since expanded to 47 accelerators in 33 cities around the world. Techstars has partnered with Protocol Labs and Filecoin to offer the Filecoin Techstars Accelerator that focuses on startups that use the IPFS/Filecoin blockchain-based storage network.
With fewer than 1% of the applicants accepted to Techstars Accelerator programs, it is an immense honor to announce that Mint State Labs has been accepted into the Filecoin Techstars Accelerator program. Joining the 2022 Filecoin Techstars Seattle cohort signifies a major milestone within the history of Mint State Labs. Gaining access to invaluable resources Techstars has to offer, it all begins on March 21st and concludes June 17th, 2022.
Mint State Labs co-founder Jim Cohan said, “Techstars is all class. Isaac and his Seattle team are professional, considerate, and they’re extremely selective. We are appreciative and truly humbled to have been accepted into their program. We intend to maximize this opportunity and showcase Techstars’ ability to spot winning teams that run exceptional companies.”
The next three months has a jam-packed schedule of mentorships, networking events, workshops, and masterclasses. Kicking things off, we are flying the majority of our team to Seattle, Washington to take full advantage of the dedicated office space provided by Techstars. For the first time, most of MSL will be in the same time zone which will further develop the bonds in our already tight-niched team.
Steam is building and gears are turning, there’s something in the air as the team steps away from the virtual office to work side by side. This is a pivotal time for MSL with many exciting partnerships and announcements coming down the pike. Be sure to join the newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest happenings at Mint State Labs.
