Join the Sndbox Incubator - Applications Now Open for Cohort 2 [Launch of our Animated Introduction]
Empower Your Creativity
Hello everyone! Today our team is very excited to officially open applications for Cohort 2 of the Sndbox Incubator. We’ve made some big changes to our program and hope you enjoy our new introductory video, below. With Sndbox, we’re not just a fun community of crypto-curious artists, we’re a diverse team of innovators dedicated to building better blockchain resources and tools to equip creatives for the 21st century.
More About Sndbox
We are an incubator powered by the Steem blockchain. Our community is a global and diverse network of artists, writers, designers, musicians and non-profit institutions. Sndbox helps members learn about and earn cryptocurrency to empower innovative projects and creative ideas. We use the Steem blockchain as an avenue for fundraising and as a forum to share research across the whole of the blockchain ecosystem.
Sndbox hosts two cohorts (classes of 50 - 100) per year. Each cohort lasts for 4 months. There is an optional Alumni Program available if Cohort graduates would like to seek continued support and to support future members. The 4-month program consists of a rigorous schedule and requires weekly participation. Members will be tasked with weekly (individual) and monthly (group) assignments in addition to independent project development.
|Educate : We introduce and integrate blockchain resources with your work. Our incubator on-boards super talented individuals and organizations who represent a mix of new and experienced within the blockchain universe.|
|Coach : Our team provides weekly feedback and ongoing consultation. Members are guided with a custom curriculum to effectively learn about new cryptocurrencies and the opportunities surrounding them.|
|Empower : The incubator provides a network that creatives can harness to empower their craft both professionally and financially. We strongly believe that open-source practice paired with emerging technology can revolutionize the creative and entrepreneurial world.|
Membership Fee = 40 SBD (Steem Dollars) per month. This fee is only owed if a member is able to earn it over the course of each individual month. We will never charge an incubator member more than they were able to accrue. Fees are due at the end of each month and reflect membership for the month prior. Learn more about our current membership, here.
New Programming + New Upcoming Syllabus
We’ve learned a lot from our first Cohort (January 1st - June 1st). Through the constructive feedback of our alumni we’re excited to introduce a new and improved 4-month program complete with weekly assignments and community challenges. Each Cohort member will be tasked with collaborating alongside their peers, alumni and the broader cryptocurrency public. Cohort 1 gave us an opportunity to explore what programming worked, and what needed improvement. Looking ahead we’ve created an action-packed syllabus full of cryptocurrency lessons, resources, and industry-wide blockchain discussions with experts and newbies alike.
Please be patient as our team reviews all proposals. You should expect to hear a response (via email) no later than July 30th.
