X Ventures and Agora are excited to announce the launch of the X Competition, which will provide blockchain entrepreneurs with the opportunity to win up to $2 million in funding, a business strategy workshop with renowned experts in Berlin, and exposure to over 50 VCs at the Agora 9th Edition Global Blockchain Congress, an invitation-only blockchain conference in Dubai on February 21-22, 2022.
One of X Ventures’ four partners, Dehnadi, is “ecstatic to collaborate with Agora to uncover, assist, and celebrate changemakers who dare to question the current quo.” The X Competition, which has a February 7 application deadline, is an online and on-stage pitch event for global blockchain entrepreneurs.
“Within five phases, we hope to identify the most potential teams and train them for future success,” Dehnadi explained. Pitch decks for project teams should be sent to participate@theXCompetition.io. The top ten initiatives will pitch during the online finals for a chance to win one of five VIP team seats to Agora’s Global Blockchain Congress.
The winner will also receive a free ticket to the Congress for the entire team, as well as dozens of one-on-one meetings with venture capitalists. A panel of experts will drill all five teams on stage on the final day of the Congress, and the best three projects will be invited to a three-day workshop in Berlin.
“At this stage, you have garnered the interest of numerous investors, and you probably have a choice of whom to work with,” says Dehnadi. The training is personalized to each project and includes, but is not limited to, topics such as scaling firms, establishing business models and value propositions, customer journey mapping, financing, and pitching.
