BIP aims to enhance African developers, front-end, back-end, and full-stack developer skills using BSV blockchain technology. They have chosen BSV Blockchain, for its stability, scalability, security, and safe instant Transaction (SIT). The program will be 10-week learning, networking, and self-space with periodic meetups for the first cohort of 50. The application to join the program started on September 2, 2022, and will close on the 19th of September, 2022.
At the end of the program, the best entrepreneur will represent the cohort next year at the Dojo in London for 12-week Incubator Programme, with extensive training, guidance through start-up obstacles, and provide access to funding rounds. This will enable access to BSV blockchain-powered Companies with access to Jobs on projects, gigs, further learning, and access to finance for their businesses.
The roadmap to this program is to have 3 cohorts per year, fair regional representation (East Africa), bring the Dojo experience to Africa, set up regional capacity to Fund the entrepreneurs, Co-work in space for ecosystem builders and get access to Global BSV Blockchain Conventions.
As Africa is rising, as with its people and technology, the Blockchain Innovation Program with CapitalSavvy will contribute tremendously to Africa's vision of innovation, progress, and success.
