MSL: Filecoin Accelerator Techstars | by Mint State Labs | March 2022
The virtual office is the mainstay of many blockchain-based businesses. Mint State Labs is no stranger to online meetings while traveling the world’s time zones. With team members from Europe in the United States, the distance between us hasn’t slowed us down. But, for the first time, we have the chance to be under one roof, and there is something great that brings us together.
Techstars is an operational investor with one goal, to help entrepreneurs succeed. In 2007, Techstars hosted its first Accelerator program and has since grown to 47 accelerators in 33 cities around the world. Techstars has partnered with Protocol Labs and Filecoin to offer the Filecoin Techstars Accelerator which focuses on startups using the IPFS/Filecoin blockchain-based storage network.
With less than 1% of applicants accepted into the Techstars Accelerator programs, it is a huge honor to announce that Mint State Labs has been accepted into the Filecoin Techstars Accelerator program. Joining the Filecoin Techstars Seattle 2022 cohort represents a major milestone in the history of Mint State Labs. Accessing the invaluable resources Techstars has to offer, it all starts March 21, 2022.
The next three months have a busy schedule of mentorships, networking events, workshops and masterclasses. To start, we’re moving the majority of our team to Seattle, WA to take full advantage of the dedicated office space Techstars provides. For the first time, most of MSL will be in the same time zone, which will further develop the bonds in our already small team.
Steam is rising and the gears are turning, something is in the air as the team moves away from the virtual office to work side by side. This is a pivotal time for MSL with many exciting partnerships and announcements to come. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter to stay up to date with the latest happenings at Mint State Labs.
