Frequently asked questions

How do I get funding?

Our programs are designed such that towards the end of each program, the most promising teams will pitch in front of the BFG investment committee. 

Among the successful teams, BFG will select teams to assist with €100,000 in cash contributions. In return, BFG gets around 3-10% in equity.

Does my country of residence matter?

Not at all. BFG as an organization works completely remotely with team members from across the globe. We liaise with CEOs, project managers, and IT professionals worldwide. Therefore, we do not discriminate based on place of residence and your country of residence does not matter as long as it is planet Earth!

However, our expertise is clearly in Central Europe - with a concentration in D/A/CH countries - and therefore, we will have a slight preference towards this area. BUT! Excellence and great entrepreneurs will always find a solution.

Do I need an idea? What if I don't have a team yet?

Yes. This is a startup accelerator program where we help you build a blockchain startup from pre-MVP stage.

If you don't have a team or no idea, you can also consider joining our incubator program BFG Superstars.

Do I need to have a technical background?

No, you do not need to have a technical background. We form startup teams consisting of one CEO and one CTO. However, everybody needs to understand blockchain at a solid level and have intermediate practical experience. It is very important to understand that BFG Superstars is not there to educate you. We are not a university or research institute. Rather, we want to build companies that are ready to be funded by investors.

We can provide you with all the necessary industry knowledge, an excellent network, and funding. However, you will be the founder whose responsibilities cannot be outsourced to someone else.

When is the official start of the program?

We are looking for the most promising blockchain talents twice a year:

Spring cohort application phase: December - February
Spring cohort program phase: March - June


Fall cohort application phase: June - August
Fall cohort program phase: September - December
