Empower Your Creativity

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: we are excited to announce that Cohort 2 will not cost members any SBD. Our team has been hard at work preparing a new program that is both sustainable to operate and one that also fosters strong community networks. Instead of fees, Sndboxers will be required to complete 1 assignment article per month (published via @sndbox) and 1 journal article per month (published via @cc-billboard). These monthly article / journal assignments will be a great strategy for Steemians to broadcast their ideas, projects, call for participation and to build new audiences. We believe that this new approach will better engage both incubatees and the projects they are a part of.
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.
