Accelerator Open Web Collective is announcing today a combined $650,000 USD funding offer for web3 startups. 

The organization facilitates connections between founders, investors, and industry experts to help web3 and blockchain startups develop and grow. Its goal is to change the way the online world is monetized with each funding cohort they launch into the tech stratosphere, which is done by 15 companies at a time through its accelerator program. 

Thus far the organization has helped 28 startups raise over $300M USD in cumulative funding. 

In a company statement the accelerator’s founder Mildred Idada said, “The Open Web Collective team’s aim is to partner with innovative startups and investors, support the Web3 sector, and help to uncover the next unicorns. 2022 will be filled with launches, fresh batches, and new projects. This quarter is just a sneak peak of what’s to come this year, and we are excited to give our community a front row seat.”
