“For the Binance Labs Incubation Program, we search all over the world for the strongest founders and projects to invest in.

We are proud to have found 13 gems in Season II, and to have spent the past 10 weeks working with the BUIDLers to launch their demos and gained early traction.

From in-app monetization to cash-to-crypto kiosks in Africa, this batch of projects represents the diversity in blockchain and entrepreneurship globally. We are excited to see firsthand the progress being made in every corner of the world to push blockchain forward.”
