Seeks Approval for Ecosystem ETFs
PRNewswireFebruary 20, 20246 min

Zetrix, a leading layer-1 public blockchain platform by MY E.G. Services Berhad (“MYEG“), and Web3Labs¬†Hong Kong, a Web3 development and investment powerhouse, launched the Zetrix Global Accelerator Programme to incubate and nurture promising Web3 startups from all over the world with ecosystem support from¬†Hong Kong’s¬†progressive Virtual Asset (VA) ecosystem. The programme will open for applications in early¬†March 2024, and successful applicants will be announced during the 2024 Hong Kong Web3 Festival, scheduled for¬†6-9 April, 2024.

With the objective of identifying the most promising ventures, the programme aims to admit up to 10 startups. These chosen projects will have the opportunity to leverage the Zetrix platform and be matched with government or enterprise stakeholders to build and deploy their innovative applications.

The six-month accelerator seeks projects that demonstrate evidence of product-market maturity and possess an innovative and clearly defined development pipeline that ideally can supplement¬†Hong Kong’s¬†virtual asset roadmap. Industries beckoning blockchain-based innovation in the city state include real-world asset (RWA) tokenisation, security token offerings and¬†stablecoin¬†innovation. The programme aims to introduce use cases in RWA, Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), and blockchain-based finance to enterprises, financial institutions, as well as government organisations. The partners of the programme, namely Zetrix, Web3Labs, and Summer Capital, will also work towards securing regulatory approval for exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that are partially backed by tokens issued by participants in this programme.

The launch of this accelerator follows an announcement in January that Zetrix, Web3Labs, and venture capital firm Summer Capital would form a strategic collaboration to establish Zetrix as the preferred blockchain infrastructure for¬†Hong Kong¬†government-aligned applications. As part of this initiative, a dedicated Global Accelerator Programme will incubate and nurture promising startups building applications on the Zetrix platform. This programme will provide mentorship, technical support, and access to funding opportunities to promising entrepreneurs who will contribute to¬†Hong Kong’s¬†Web3 landscape and benefit users from all around the world.

Benefiting from a partnership with Web3Labs, the programme leverages Web3Labs’ robust ecosystem network to facilitate connections with investment institutions, corporate partners, and industry experts. Overall, it opens up a world of business opportunities for the community within its network. With Web3Labs’ support in obtaining the necessary collaborations, whether they involve business partnerships, investment, or government support, startup teams can expect to establish development blueprints more quickly and directly.

Johnny Ng, member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), Legislative Council member of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and advisor of Web3Labs commends the launch of this programme, stating that it further cements¬†Hong Kong’s¬†position as a progressive international financial centre that embraces Web3 developments.
