Binance Labs, the venture capital and accelerator of Binance, has announced the 13 early-stage projects selected for season 7 of the Most Valuable Builder (MVB) Accelerator Program. The 10-week accelerator program is jointly run by BNB Chain, the community-driven blockchain ecosystem that includes the world’s largest smart contract blockchain, and Binance Labs, in addition to welcoming CMC Labs as a strategic partner for this season. 

For Season 7, there are two tracks: the MVB Startup Track and the MVB Founder Track. The startup track will officially kick off on the 5th of March. The program supports early-stage Web3 builders to grow the BNB Chain ecosystem and will conclude with a Binance Labs investment based on Demo Day pitches and project performance throughout MVB. Founders and core team members from each project will have access to a curriculum covering key topics to address early-stage Web3 project needs. 

The founder track is open and the applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Founders can apply here. 

Yi He, Binance Co-Founder and Head of Binance Labs said: “Binance Labs remains committed to supporting early-stage founders. As part of this commitment, MVB is dedicated to bolstering and advancing projects within BNB Chain to grow the Web3 ecosystem.”

12 projects were incubated in last year’s MVB program with Binance Labs investing in four top-performing projects. These included AltLayer, KiloEx, Kinza, and Sleepless AI who have either become foundational to the BNB Chain ecosystem or have experienced substantial growth within the ecosystem.

MVB continues to be a highly competitive program, with Season 7 receiving over 700 applicants for this latest season’s cohort. A selective process admitted 1.8% of the total applicant pool to welcome the 13 MVB Season 7 Accelerator teams, listed alphabetically by sector:
