The web3 startup scene is buzzing with incubators and accelerators that promise to supercharge your project’s launch, test wild hypotheses, and attract big investments. But hold up, there’s a problem with how things are rollin’! The selection process is flawed, the costs are sky-high, and the chances of success are slimmer than a toothpick. It’s time for a change, my friends!

:rocket: The Challenges We’re Tackling:
Let’s talk numbers, folks. The current accelerator and incubator selection process? It’s a tough nut to crack, with a dismal conversion rate of only 0.3%. Yup, you heard that right—99.7% of projects get left out in the cold without any support or guidance. And the costs? Woah, they’re hefty! We’re talking about 6% equity and 6% of the total token supply, sucking the life out of startups’ tokenomics.

:zap: Our Solution: XFounders to the Rescue!
We’re XFounders, and we’re here to change the game. Our mission? To skyrocket the statistical likelihood of startups making it to incubation, acceleration, and fundraising. No more leaving 99.7% of projects behind, my friends. We believe that by empowering more projects with a deep understanding of web3 dynamics, we can unleash a storm of hypotheses, launch a fleet of kickass products, ditch the weak models, and develop sustainable business models at warp speed!

:muscle: An Inclusive Approach:
We’re not about exclusivity and gatekeeping. Our program is all about inclusivity, accessibility, and building a community of founders, developers, and web3 specialists. We want everyone to have a shot at success, regardless of their background or connections. We’re tearing down those barriers, my friends!

:star2: The Future of Web3 Starts Here:
Together, we’re gonna build something epic. XFounders is more than just a program—it’s a movement. We’re fixin’ what’s broken in web3 accelerators, paving the way for widespread adoption and unleashing a wave of game-changing startups. Are you ready to join us on this incredible journey?

:alarm_clock: It’s time to build the future—together! :muscle::boom:
