1000 Black Voices Accelerator powered by SingularityNet

Empowered to succeed

Black AI and blockchain startup founders to benefit from technical advice, mentorship and the opportunity to run for DEEP funding allocation to be voted on by the community, thanks to the partnership between 1000 Black Voices and SingularityNet.

A 12-week accelerator launching late June is now open to applicants, with up to 10 positions available to Black AI and blockchain startup founders and specialists anywhere in the world 

Funding from SingularityNET’s DEEP Funding pool, a token-fund worth $1M+ in the accelerator’s first month alone, will be made available to startups participating in the program. The final allocation of the fund and who will get it, will be subject to a democratic vote by the SingularityNET Community. 

The program will run for 12 weeks. It is made up of two phases (the first dedicated to technology and the second to business development) with a four week break in the middle for founders to put learnings into practice and develop their ideas. 

The  SingularityNet and 1000 Black Voices Accelerator is open to Founders:
