Winners

  • Prize pool of $20k in NIBI tokens
  • Prize pool of $40k in auditing credits from Beosin, Zellic, Zokyo, and Sherlock
  • Up to $20k per project in grants from the Nibiru Builders Grants program (More info here)
  • Fast track to the SpringX Accelerator initiated by Beosin and BuidlerDAO
  • Intro’s to partner VCs for possible investments
  • Acceptance into the Nibiru 0 to 1 Accelerator, where they will get tokenomics, marketing, legal, and biz/ops mentorship and resources.

0 to 1 is a 3-month Accelerator program (July 1 - Sept 30) embedded within the Nibiru ecosystem, catering to a selected group of founders: builders committed to fostering growth within the Nibiru community and crafting novel building blocks unseen before in web3. The Accelerator's primary objective is to equip ambitious, emerging founders with the essential tools to bootstrap the initial phases of their venture autonomously, minimizing the need for external assistance and advisors.

Launching a new venture often poses challenges in navigating foundational aspects such as legal structuring, team building, fundraising, tokenomics design, market positioning, and strategic analysis. Rather than relying heavily on external consultants or early hires across various business functions like product, finance, or legal, 0 to 1 provides comprehensive training and guidance to empower founders with the necessary expertise, thus optimizing both time and resources.

Ultimately, the program is dedicated to mentoring founders and fostering enduring relationships within the Nibiru ecosystem.
