Arcana’s focus on ecosystem development centres around helping more startups, founders, and developers adopt blockchain.

We intend to not only help create new projects and ventures in Web 3.0 but bring awareness and offer support to traditional Web 2.0 startups in their adoption of Blockchain. The bridging of knowledge and support between Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 ecosystems is crucial for the blockchain ecosystem to thrive.

Arcana’s partnership with Headstart Network Foundation is our first step in realising this.

As Headstart’s Blockchain Partner, Arcana will help drive Blockchain adoption across 30+ cities and 1000s of entrepreneurs in India

Headstart is one of India’s largest grassroots level organization that supports entrepreneurship and startups with tremendous reach in the startup ecosystem.

Over the last 14 years, they have run 1,800 startup events across 30 plus cities in India, supported over 15,000 ventures, and are impacting 20,000 people every year with over 200 annual meetups. This impact is further spread through partnerships with over 150+ incubators.

Headstart’s efforts have resulted in over 6Bn USD being added to the Indian economy.

Headstart runs various initiatives across meetups, fundraising, hiring, mentoring, and starting up for current and aspiring entrepreneurs and some of today’s largest unicorns have done their first demo at Headstart’s meetups.

This level of commitment and penetration is valuable in driving blockchain adoption.

Goals of the Partnership

With Headstart, Arcana Network will curate specific initiatives to drive awareness and adoption across Developers, Startup Incubators and Accelerators, aspiring and existing startup founders who will then be supported by Arcana through mentorship and support in either building new blockchain projects or adopting blockchain in their existing technology stack.

These initiatives will pan across conferences, webinars, meetups, hackathons, closed-door sessions with partners and incubators, conducted by some of the top founders and investors in the Blockchain ecosystem.

India has one of the largest developer communities in the world with a growing startup ecosystem and its blockchain adoption is not slowing down. We are excited to work with Headstart in truly tapping into India’s potential for being a frontrunner in Web3 adoption.
