The Middle East & North Africa region has evolved as a global crypto & web3 innovation center. Over the past few years, many Web3 startups have shifted their base to the MENA region.

Such transitions provided favorable conditions for investors and developers to move to the MENA region for extensive & enhanced development of decentralized technologies.

Such evolution contributed to an inflow of around $566 billion in crypto transactions and investments, according to the reports released for July 2021 to July 2022 by Coindesk.

Over the period of time, MENA has observed a remarkable YoY growth of 48% in Transaction Volume, where the noteworthy contributions are from Turkey, Saudi Arabia & UAE.

Reef Labs' $10M Accelerator Program

Contributing to this ecosystem’s consistent growth, Reef Labs has introduced a $10 Million Accelerator Program to fuel up innovation in the Web3 market in MENA. The objective is to invest in aspiring projects and developers while expanding the Reef Chain.

The Accelerator Program aims to position Reef as the go-to blockchain in the MENA region. The program envisions turning your Web3 vision into reality by introducing crucial offerings that are vital for the growth of every project.

Some of the key offerings of this program include:

  1. Funding support and introductions to VC firms and networks associated with Reef for greater financial opportunities.
  2. Mentorship support from experienced Web3 mentors for tech, marketing, growth, and product iterations and improvements, including valuable insights and updates.

Reef Labs allows you to work alongside industry pioneers and visionaries for which Founders/developers/teams must forge through our application & shortlisting process.

This evaluation process is conducted by the Reef Labs team on several key parameters, including:

  1. Project, which is evaluated for its unique value proposition, relevance in today's market, scalability, and future growth potential.
  2. Team & people behind the project to assess their skills, experience, teamwork, and overall passion for the project.
  3. Litepaper or Whitepaper to examine and gain insight into the project's vision, roadmap, technical architecture, and problem-solving strategies.
  4. Development Stage to gauge how far the project has come and how ready it is for acceleration.
  5. Tokenomics overview to gain insights about token utility and overall value proposition to evaluate the project's potential for sustainability and growth.

And last but not least is your Readiness to Integrate & Accelerate with Reef.

Upon the successful completion of the shortlisting process, projects are notified through a confirmation email.

After this evaluation, the shortlisted projects need to go through a set of Meetings & Sync Up calls with the Reef Labs team. These interactions are crucial for ensuring a seamless alignment between the projects’ objectives and the accelerator program's goals.

Consequently, the Projects are informed about the crucial details of the Acceleration Period or Cohort’s Timeline & Structure involving all sorts of activities, and programs discussed earlier, including Monthly milestones, Community calls, and Demo Day timelines.

These are important events where projects, having achieved their set milestones, are showcased to the community. Allowing teams to refine their project further, aligning with market demands and expectations.

At Reef Labs, we are Pioneering Web3 Revolution in the Middle East to collectively contribute to a brighter future of Web3 with some next-gen Web3 projects through Reef Chain.
