Why an Accelerator DAO?

The Web2 era accelerators are not designed to accommodate the needs of Web3 startups.
This is why we built a different system.
Via the alignment of incentives and the sharing of resources, we will have more active and motivated actors in our ecosystem.
HyperNest aims to accelerate more than 500 Web3 startups in the next four years!
To achieve this vast goal, HyperNest needs an exceptionally open structure.

For this reason, our DAO organization distributes:




HyperNest Ethos


To provide DeFi pioneers with the best support for building the protocols that would empower individual sovereignty.


To support the creation of a new system where each individual has the possibility to express their full potential free of constraints, limitations, and impositions.
