Feb. 24, 2023, Zurich, Switzerland — Cointelegraph, the leading blockchain news platform, announces a partnership with Verum Capital, a Switzerland-based Web3 venture studio. The two companies will collaborate to provide new founders and startups with valuable educational resources, mentorship and technology know-how in the Cointelegraph Accelerator, supporting their success in the Web3 space.

The Cointelegraph Accelerator gets Web3 startups to the next level

Since 2022, Cointelegraph Accelerator has leveraged the company’s unique position at the forefront of Web3-focused media and reporting to help founders launch the next generation of Web3 projects. The accelerator offers founders access to Cointelegraph’s creative expertise in marketing, investor and customer networks, and industry partners, improving each startup’s ability to find and build an audience, create an ecosystem around their product, avoid common pitfalls and ship faster.


Industry partners provide a valuable resource for founders

Participants in the Cointelegraph Accelerator have the opportunity to participate in regular workshops with industry experts. These workshops provide direct access to professional expertise on topics such as product-market fit, tokenomics, go-to-market strategy, incentives design, fundraising and regulation. The workshops are also a valuable access point to other founders who can share perspectives and strengthen ties within the community.

Bringing Verum Capital’s expertise to the accelerator

Verum Capital was founded in 2018 to provide professional services for enterprise and institutional clients tackling blockchain-enabled projects. The team was involved with early experiments in the space, including the first regulatory-approved tokenization of a bank, early stablecoin projects with Fortune 100 companies, and pioneering blockchain registries with leading global governments. In the five years since its founding, Verum Capital has evolved into a Web3 venture studio that builds products through internal incubation, co-creation with startup and scale-up teams, and professional services and venture investments.

As an industry expert, Verum brings value to each Cointelegraph Accelerator cohort by providing access to their breadth of experience and perspective. With 90+ engagements, 10+ listed clients, 450+ smart contracts in their libraries and 15 portfolio companies, Verum Capital can offer founders insights and practical experience in almost any focus area.


Verum Capital CEO Matthias Weissl said:

“The startup projects that come through the Cointelegraph Accelerator span established and emerging areas of focus within the Web3 space — from DeFi and analytics to SocialFi and physical consumer experiences. As a venture studio that has maintained its position at the forefront of the space by delivering early and experimental projects, we are eager to support and learn with a new generation of builders.”

Paul Solntsev, head of Cointelegraph Accelerator, said:

“We look forward to further enhancing our mentorship program with the expertise that Verum Capital brings to the table from their years of experience in designing token-enabled ecosystems with a user-centric approach. It’s an invaluable opportunity to apply practical experience to support our founders through different stages of their company growth.”
