incubate About Projects Submissions Community

Incubate Philosophy

Our goal is to achieve widespread adoption of the decentralized web - while staying true to our core principles which include transparency, openness, decentralization, security, and privacy.

These principles act as tools for thinking, communication, and decision-making as we choose like-minded startups to support.

Program Format

Because great projects are submitted throughout the year, we incubate startups on a rolling basis, so we're ready to go when you are.

We review all applications and invite the most promising projects to interview. After the interview process, successful applicants will enter the program, which is tailored to the specific needs of each project.

Our Team

Our team of Status Core Contributors embrace our culture of community and inclusion. Some team members work exclusively on Incubate, while others provide support as mentors. We’re just as passionate about empowering our own team as we are about making sure our projects receive the support that helps them scale.
