177: What’s the Scenario? | Launchpool Web3 Techstars Accelerator Class of 2022

What a week! Techstars kicked off the Launchpool Web3 Techstars Accelerator this week in Dublin and they’re already moving at a breakneck pace. With that, we’re taking the opportunity to introduce our MoneyNeverSleeps community to the ten amazing founding teams that make up Techstars’ first chain-agnostic blockchain accelerator as well as Techstars’ very first accelerator program in Ireland.

This episode of MoneyNeverSleeps is sponsored by Philip Lee, one of Ireland’s fastest-growing corporate law firms and expert advisors at the heart of the Dublin and London start-up, fintech and crypto communities.

Here are the ten early-stage startups that form the inaugural class of the Launchpool Web3 Techstars Accelerator, all of whom introduce themselves and their vision in this episode recorded on March 16th, 2022, about two weeks before the program kicked off.
