Do you have an idea that will take the Ethereum ecosystem to the next level?

Tachyon is an Ethereum focused accelerator program from Consensys Ventures. Tachyon is currently accepting applications for its Spring 2019 Cohort, which will run from April 1, 2019 to May 22, 2019. Each project will receive pre-seed funding and gain access to a strong group of mentors and expertise from ConsenSys.

The program will accelerate early-stage Ethereum/blockchain-agnostic projects to the next stage. The Tachyon program gives participants the opportunity to learn from and to be mentored by members of the ConsenSys Mesh (including MetaMask, Truffle, Infura, Legal, and more), pioneers in the blockchain technology space, and advisors from both the web 2.0 and web 3.0 worlds. At the end of the program, founders will receive a chance to pitch to venture capitalists and angel investors.
