Demo Day #2 shortlisting is over! Which project caught your eye?
Since its establishment last year, Moledao has held two global hackathons and one demo day to encourage blockchain developers to build projects in the Web 3.0 space. As time has passed, many of these projects have matured and are now in need of additional capital to develop and expand their products. Furthermore, these projects may also require more resources and support as they begin to enter the market.
To assist these entrepreneurial projects in connecting with investment institutions and to help them build their brand and grow their resource network, Moledao has organized its second Demo Day.
Demo Day is an event where teams present their projects to investors and developers in order to gain exposure and garner potential investment opportunities and partnership with like-minded organisations.
Registration of the second Demo Day was open for a month from 07 Nov 2022 to 05 Dec 2022. During this period, we received 46 valid project submissions, including both mature projects which have working products, as well as projects which are still in infancy.
