Seed Club Announces SC04: Our Fourth Accelerator Cohort

Seed Club is an incubator for web 3 communities.

The Accelerator program is at our core. It is a place to learn and build alongside like-minded community leaders and some of the best minds in web3.

Since SC01, our projects have gone on to accomplish a 200 ETH raise in 15 minutes (Krause House), onboarding hundreds of brand and marketing execs into a tokenized web3 research community (JUMP) and launching the leading content and insights aggregator on social tokens, DAOs and Web3 (Forefront).

Today we announce our fourth cohort.

We were completely blown away by the quality of projects that applied to be part of this cohort. Thank you to all of the project teams that took the time and care to complete the process.

As the Seed Club DAO transitions to greater community engagement and governance, the project selection process is evolving as well. We will be sharing learnings from this process in the coming weeks, and evaluating and improving it through input from our community members and the Accelerator working group.

Our process:

  1. A trusted selection committee was assembled, made up of accelerator alumni, collaborators, and contributors.
  2. Phase 1: The first round of the process was to filter the candidates based on a specific set of basic criteria: proof of community, proof of communication, proof of execution, proof of leadership, proof of web3 participation, and new web3 models.
  3. Phase 2: Projects that made it through phase 1 had a 1:1 meet up with a committee member. This meeting gave us a chance to get to know each other, to meet the team behind the projects, and get a better understanding of the criteria listed in phase 1.
  4. Phase 3: 35 projects advanced to a token-based selection process for 10 slots, curated by $CLUB holders. As this was our first time involving $CLUB holders in the selection process, we also planned to keep 5-10 remaining spots open for phase 4.
  5. Phase 4: Our selection committee evaluated the remaining projects and ultimately selected 11 projects to include in the cohort. The final selection was based on an additional review of the initial basic criteria, as well as an assessment that projects were at a stage where Seed Club could provide specific value.
