BUILD THROUGH THE BEAR
Feb 02 - Mar 14
About The Event
The next big web3 project is being built now. During Grizzlython, you can go from idea to company in six weeks. The winners will pitch to leading investors at an exclusive demo day.
Grizzlython is a global, online hackathon for the Solana ecosystem and community. If you're interested in dipping your toes into web3, this hackathon is the perfect opportunity to start your crypto journey from anywhere in the world. Register here!
Remember: Solana Hackathons are a little different than a traditional building event — they’re more like marathons than sprints. They are intended for serious builders and entrepreneurs to compete over a 6 week period in order to formulate a business idea, run through development, and have an opportunity to raise seed funding from crypto’s leading investors.
The Solana Grizzlython Hackathon is a competition where projects will be evaluated by judges on their technological merits without consideration of legal viability. Participants in the Hackathon will create software solely for purposes of evaluation by judges as part of a competition and not for commercial deployment or release as part of the Hackathon. All participants must comply with applicable laws and regulations when releasing any software that they develop as part of the Hackathon.
