Sanctor Capital, a blockchain-focused investment firm that brings together missionary founders and successful entrepreneurs, announced today that it will be hosting its first Demo Day to showcase the inaugural cohort of projects graduating from its custom-tailored mentorship program, Sanctor Turbo. Project teams graduating as Sanctor Turbo’s Alpha Class were hand-selected by domain experts from industry-leading organizations such as Coinbase, Cointelegraph, Solana, The Sandbox, and many more.
At the live-streamed event taking place on Sept. 14 between 2:00pm – 5:00pm Eastern, the founding teams from Koii, Synchrony, and ThorSwap will present their market-ready dApps and platforms, which span the domains of decentralized content ownership, cross-chain DeFi, and on-chain asset management.
“With the mentors we were able to recruit for this class, I have no doubt that the feedback the teams received have made an impact on what they will be showcasing to the world on Demo Day,” said Han Kao, founder of Sanctor Capital. “It has been enormously rewarding to see the transformation of these projects over such a short period of time, and we look forward to seeing their innovations push the industry forward.”
Demo Day presentations will be followed by thematic panel discussions featuring industry leaders on the biggest topics and trends of 2021.
