Frontier Labs serve as our research and pilot platform. They leverage Blockchain and FinTech solutions to solve the world’s biggest problems, by engaging diverse stakeholders to explore, experiment, and adopt solutions.
Current approaches to connecting technology and new sectors and geographies can be difficult, because of limited market exposure and lack of a common language. By working across sectors and traditional silos, our Labs provide the platform for exploration, and development to drive towards testing and implementation. Currently, we focus on themes that span different sectors and bring a variety of stakeholders together to explore Blockchain/DLT solutions.
Our Blockchain Labs
The call for application of our next Global Blockchain and FinTech Acceleration
Frontier Accelerators are intentionally designed to be lean, local, and customizable depending on customer demand. Through partnerships with local incubators and accelerators, We leverage existing local expertise to expose startups to the nuances of local industries and markets. We supplement local partners’ capacity with a toolkit of Blockchain and FinTech applications and training modules, a global mentor network, and a pipeline of potential customers eager to experiment with startups and their early-stage solutions. Each accelerator is focused on one industry and is supported by potential customers – such as governments and corporations – that have a vested interest in integrating new DLT and FinTech innovations into their approach.
