Crypto Startup Accelerator (CSX) Fall 2024 in New York City: Applications Now Open

Jason Rosenthal

This is the first year that our Crypto Startup Accelerator (CSX) program – which provides expert guidance, capital, and resources for founders of early-stage crypto startups – will have two cohorts, one for Spring and one for Fall. So as we gear up to start the CSX Spring 2024 program in London with 24 companies later this month, we’re also kicking off our search for bold and ambitious crypto founders to join our Fall program taking place in New York City.

I’m happy to announce that applications are now open for CSX Fall 2024 in New York City, and will remain open until March 29th. The ten-week, in-person program will start in September and end with a Demo Day in November. 

This will be our first time hosting CSX in New York, and the fourth overall cohort since we started the program (formerly called Crypto Startup School) in 2020. New York is now a premier global hub for innovative crypto startups and technical talent, and Fall 2024 participants will be plugged into a vibrant network of leading companies and experts. Over the course of the program, they’ll receive hands-on guidance, mentorship, and inspiration from some of the best leaders and operators in crypto today. 

We’re looking for founders that are dead-set on building something transformational, regardless of where they are based, so encourage startups from across the world to apply. a16z crypto invests in each participating company, with standard terms of $500,000 for 7% equity and other standard rights.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to host CSX in New York later this year. Submit your application to join us there!
