Startups & Onboarding for Students

Guiding Questions

How can we support student blockchain startups through Catalyst? And how can I increase the number of student Catalyst proposers and blockchain engineers?


Student entrepreneurs lack the resources needed to startup. And Cardano ecosystem also requires young Catalyst proposers and engineers.

What does success look like?

Reduce the competition rate by limiting the proposers to students. And set a budget cap and distribute opportunities to many proposers.

Key Metrics to measure

  • Number of proposals for this category
  • Number of applause and comments from the community
  • Number of collaborations with other proposers
  • Number of proposals that participated in the next fund
