dLab, a blockchain accelerator program launched last October, from Cardano blockchain R&D firm EMURGO, and SOSV, a tech accelerator, has announced their first investments. In addition to the four companies which will be participating in the first dLab cohort, the program also announced supporting several Cardano fellowship projects, which will be revealed over the next few weeks.
The development process will see both SOSV and EMURGO spending the next 14 weeks working hand in hand with the selected founders to accelerate their companies’ technology, business models, and positioning. In addition to investment, the program will be providing them with staff support, network access, and opportunities to work closely with a large, diverse mentorship pool.

After hours of interviews and internal discussions, these four companies proved to us that they have what it takes to become great.”[/perfectpullquote]
