CANnovate – Devless Heroes is an acceleration program aiming to help startups or startups-to-be with community-driven business models to build and run a competitive online service of their own without heavy investment in development.
CANnovate – Devless Heroes is an online 12-week program, open to startups from all over the world.
We invite startups who are pursuing community-driven innovation in various sectors such as:
Community innovation in education
Cooperation of decentralized community
Governance innovation of the traditional organization
Journalism/media innovation using community power
Participative local community
Responsible & conscious consumption
Community-driven innovation for small-medium businesses, etc.
During the 12-week program, 10 selected startups will build their MVPs (Minimum Viable Product) using CAN’s “plug-n-play” tools with tech consultations to launch their beta service and to conduct a market test. The participating teams will have the opportunity to interact with other teams from various fields, share their insights, and learn from each other. Furthermore, selected startups will receive tailored mentorship from experienced mentors who have successfully built their products and services on a global scale.
By the end of the program, the top 5 startups, who best showed their business potentials through their initial beta service, will be selected as Devless Heroes. The Devless Heroes will continuously receive tech support from CAN for additional 12 months to refine their product and prove their business model while getting access to investment opportunities.
