We aim for you to form long-lasting relationships and valuable connections that can aid your future endeavors.
Focus on Execution
While a great idea is the foundation of any project, its execution holds equal, if not more, importance. We encourage individuals with early-stage ideas to join us, as our collective can help refine these concepts into fundable startup ventures.
Areas of Interest
We provide a nurturing environment for a plethora of tech fields. However, we encourage you to be passionate about your project. Here are some areas of interest that we think might excite you:

- On-chain and dynamic NFTs
- Autonomous Worlds and onchain games
- Mathematical proofs
- Intersection of web3 and AI tooling
Criteria for Selection
We prefer individuals who have a Proof of Concept (PoC) or a tangible demo of their project. This gives us confidence in your commitment and passion for your project. However, don't let this deter you. If you believe in your idea, we encourage you to apply.
How to Apply?
To apply, reach out to us on our Telegram channel. We will soon replace this process with a form for a more streamlined approach.

Looking for Mentors Too!
If you're a respected figure in the tech community and have a background in web3/AI companies or angel investing, we'd love for you to join us as a mentor. We require your Twitter, LinkedIn, Github profiles, and a brief on why you'd like to participate in our SubWork Fellowship program. We can help cover some costs for staying here for week or two.
