"The Xcelerator program functioned much like a University course for startups and provided an insightful knowledge base geared specifically towards blockchain tech companies. Speakers for mentorship sessions came from the vast Berkeley network and covered many important startup fundamentals, culminating in a solid framework and mentality for the founders to use when building a new company. The feedback & continual refinement of pitches for Demo Day proved to be invaluable and the people we met along the way has opened many doors."
