Atlanta Blockchain Center’s Immutable Founders program is a uniquely resourceful program designed for projects along all stages of development. Created by blockchain and industry veterans, our goal is to find innovative projects and talent to help develop, execute and scale their ideas.
We are building tomorrow’s leaders through hands-on support, technical assistance, extensive marketing support, education and training, a high-powered investor network, industry partners and resources and a dedicated team ready to kickstart your dreams. Our Immutable Founders program accepts incubation applications from founders based on the Bitcoin timezone – 24x7x365. Applications will only be considered for the next eligible quarter (Q1 or Q3), assessed on a case-by-case basis and placed in one of our four groups according to their stage: Genesis, Mining, Testnet, or Mainnet.

How does it work?
Each group lasts a period of one quarter (3 months) where applicants undergo a series of sessions with peers, industry veterans, and other strategic partners covering areas based on the group level and each project’s unique needs. Applicants going from Genesis to Mainnet can expect to spend up to four quarters (12 months) in the program, while Mainnet applicants only require one quarter before graduation.
Immutable Founders culminates in cohorts delivering 5-minute presentations during a BitAngels pitchfest at our annual Immutable Conference, potential funding to continue BUIDLing, and a Starter Labs Graduate NFT with perpetual access to our network.
Prior to attending the pitchfest, founders will work directly with Tim Dorr at TechStars Atlanta to perfect their pitches.
Applicants accepted into Immutable Founders must attend in-person Lunch-n-Learn sessions twice a week. These are held Tuesdays and Thursdays between 11am – 1pm EST in Q1 and Q3. Lunch will be served.
