- Super Global – enables impact organisations to develop, fund and build breakthrough technology solutions to the world’s most pressing social and environmental challenges.
- Deputi – helps business grow by making the boring but necessary operational tasks easy; increasing efficiency and reducing costs, time and the anxiety of having to deal with operational stuff.
- Ehab – aims to disrupt the construction sector by building a data and process management tool that ensures sustainable and efficient operation of projects; from inception, to completion and post-lifecycle.
- resonate – Helps businesses capture positive actions across their organisations and calculate their impact, using game design and behavioural science to bring about long-term change and purpose to company culture.
- TokenBlocks – aims to bring fund management into the 21st century with its own transfer agency network, reducing operational costs by up to 30% and managing all fund data across all service providers on a single enterprise-friendly distributed ledger.
- Remixology – pitched as the world’s first marketplace for creating a balanced market offering parity between key stakeholders involved in the art and commerce of remixing music.
- eTEU – documentation process optimisation and digitalisation in the container shipping industry.
These companies will each receive up to £50,000 in the form of an equity-free grant, mentoring by business leaders in the field, as well as one-to-one technical support from blockchain developers to hone their offerings. Taking part in a three-month programme, the cohort will be based at StateZero Lab’s office space in Kings Cross, London.
Tazz Gault, Director and Co-Founder of StateZero Labs, says: “The volume and quality of applications received, and the sheer range of different use cases from our final seven proves that there’s some incredible innovation in this space. Blockchain really can be used for business, and we hope by bridging the gap between humanity and tech, we’ll help to fizzle out the noise.”
