2022 was our formal Year 1 in Web3 Journey to Kickstart decades ahead!
The Web3 Decade ahead
Though our Founders & Team have had a play in this space since 2016, we, as Foundership, created a journey focussing on "Web3" only in 2022.
Let me share more about our ' New-World-Model' detail. But here are the quick numbers to share

The Web3 community loved Foundership's virtual & IRL initiatives plus programs!
Fresh New-World-Model for Web3 Acceleration
It takes a village to grow a child and it's a community of coaches, friends, and well-wishers to help a startup become successful.
Hence, we have developed a model where there is wealth distributed to the coaches by Foundership from the equity/token we receive from startups/projects that join Foundership’s 0xCamp Incubation Program & LaunchCamp Acceleration program.
Foundership’s CoachDAO Philosophy: We coach Startups to succeed and co-create wealth in the process.
You will find more detail about equitable wealth creation with coaches and the community at https://docs.foundershiphq.com/our-model/coach-dao
