Polkastarter is excited to launch its official incubation and investment off-shoot, Polkastarter Labs. The newly created company will complement the Polkastarter offering through direct mentorship, support and investment pre and post-IDO.
Polkastarter Labs works similarly to most startup incubators, focusing on early-stage support more than investment per se. Leveraging the expertise of the Polkastarter team and its partners, Polkastarter Labs can advise startups on proper token economics, listings and market timing to ensure a successful launch. The incubator will also focus on community building and marketing, helping developer-heavy teams find the proper voice in the community. Finally, startups incubated by Polkastarter Labs will have full access to its network of investors, agencies, exchanges, market makers and other key crypto stakeholders.
Following the IDO on Polkastarter itself, Polkastarter Labs will continue to support the projects as they grow. In addition to advice on staking, liquidity mining and other key tech integrations, the incubator will help scale the project and its internal processes to reflect its new status. Thanks to the vast Polkastarter alumni network, mentored projects will also find it easy to establish new partnerships and collaborations. Finally, marketing support will continue just as before.
Polkastarter Labs’ first project and incubation partner is WonderHero, a Play-to-earn NFT-based game for iOS and Android. WonderHero is a turn-based RPG where players collect heroes, fight with them and earn tokens for the battles they enter into (and win). The incubation fits perfectly with Polkastarter Gaming, a recent initiative to introduce more users to the Metaverse.
“When we saw the WonderHero project, it was the right fit with the right kind of potential we were looking for, the timing was perfect to become Polkastarter’s first incubated project,” said Daniel Stockhus, CEO & Co-Founder of Polkastarter Labs. “The background of the team and its vision combined is what convinced us that this project is the right selection. It is aligned with our latest initiative, Polkastarter Gaming and we are so excited to grow this exciting market together”
“This is a pivotal moment in the development of WonderHero and for our team as a whole,” said Ethan Ng, CEO at WonderHero. “WonderHero's rich team background as well as its vision and mission clarity made it a right fit for Polkastarter Labs. Being chosen as the first project to be officially incubated means a lot for us and we can’t wait to roll up our sleeves and get busy in the lab with Polkastarter. Something is telling me this will prove to be one of the best business decisions we’ve made to date and help establish WonderHero as a leader in the blockchain gaming space. We fully trust Polkastarter and are super happy to have them as a partner.”
