Our previous batches

Batch_01

In April of 2019, the very first edition of the CV Labs Accelerator started. Over the course of ten weeks, twelve startups from eight different countries and four continents participated in Batch_01 of the CV Labs Accelerator in Crypto Valley, Zug. Participating in various events, participants had the opportunity to present to over 100 investors and industry experts, which has led to partnerships for some of the startups.

Our previous batches

Batch_02

Because of its previous success, the CV Labs Accelerator took place again in 2020, Batch_02. For the second edition of the program, we evaluated applications of 300+ blockchain startups and ultimately selected nine startups from six different countries. After ten weeks, they successfully passed the graduation at Demo Day.

Our previous batches

Batch_03

The third batch of our CV Labs Accelerator was unlike the editions before, as it took place entirely virtually for the six participating startups. We built an online platform where mentors, experts, and participating startups connected and co-worked. New teaching and learning mediums such as videos from Crypto Valley and global industry experts were published each week, combined with live workshops.

Our previous batches

Batch_04

Batch_04 officially kicked off in May 2022 with an in-person Bootcamp! The seven selected teams were invited to Zug, Switzerland, where a diverse program consisting of pitch training, business fundamentals, and networking opportunities filled the week. After our participants got to know one another, they continued the program online, with a fantastic Demo Day as the big finale.

Our previous batches

Batch_05

What better way is there to start Batch_05 than with a team-building day? The nine selected startups joined us in Zug, Switzerland, for a week of activities such as networking, events, workshops, and lectures.
