Kenyan crypto startup Crypsense Digital Group has been selected to join the 12-week Draper VeChain Web 3 Accelerator Program.
The program gives participating startups access to mentorship and support to enable them to build better, scalable platforms.
Crypsense offers end-to-end institutional adoption of blockchain and digital assets across the continent. The startup leverages capacity building, asset management and custodial solutions, asset financing and an accelerator launch pad to support blockchain and crypto startups in Africa.
The Draper VeChain Web 3 Accelerator Program focuses on high-growth blockchain companies. It is run by Draper University, a leading renowned and established pre-accelerator and incubator in Silicon Valley.
“This is an amazing opportunity to accelerate Web 3 adoption in Africa through the programme and partnerships. We have so much untapped talent and potential within our continent in blockchain and Web 3. I am excited for Africa and I can’t wait to see where this opportunity takes us,” said Alice Anangi, co-founder and CEO of Crypsense Digital Group.
Crypsense Digital Group stemmed from The Africa Blockchain Centre, a startup supported by Nairobi-based Adanian Labs that aims to scale 300 impact-driven startups across Africa.
“We understand the potential that blockchain has in solving some of the challenges that are facing Africa and we believe that we can use our disruptive nature as a continent to create value for ourselves through the adoption of the technology.”
Blockchain is touted as a promising technology that could solve some of the world’s pertinent challenges.
