A cross-campus initiative to support blockchain-focused education, research, and entrepreneurship at UCLA, UC Santa Barbara, and UC Davis.
MouseBelt has joined forces with entrepreneurial organizations and engineering departments at UCLA, UC Santa Barbara and UC Davis to encourage collaboration and enrich the quality of blockchain projects developed on campus. Together they will provide educational courses, workshops, and advising on best practices to students, and give researchers and early-stage companies the funding and resources needed to build scalable solutions and foster meaningful blockchain adoption.
MouseBelt aims to identify outstanding startup founders and provide a unique educational experience to accelerate early-stage blockchain companies. The accelerator fund will support up to 5 startups with up to $100,000 in funding each. As part of the program, participants will explore best practices for building a blockchain company with technical, academic and business mentors from MouseBelt and our partners. We will take equity for participation in this program.
