Breakdown of the selection process

All the 50 selected persons, who are expected to have basic skills in development, will go through a series of training, and meetups for 10 weeks to learn about the basics of blockchain as well as wellness, communication skills, and project management.

A Hackathon event will be held at the end of the 10 weeks where one entrepreneur will emerge as the winner.

The winner will attend “an accelerator program”, said the CEO, which will be hosted by Block Dojo in London, for 12 weeks. During this time, the person will be tutored by business leaders on “startup obstacles, and any other skills that are related to building a viable product.”

Following the 12 weeks of training is a funding opportunity where business ideas will be pitched to investors as a means of raising capital.

However, the other 49 persons will continuously have access to the BSV Academy to learn about blockchain and connect with several global organizations building solutions on the network.

Reginald Tumusiime assured the audience that there are plans to make the program three times a year so that there will be three cohorts each year.

Registration is open but will close on the 19th of September, 2022 while the first training starts on the 3rd of October, 2022.
