Founded by Sandeep Nailwal, co-founder of Polygon and Symbolic Capital, the Nailwal Fellowship is a program providing capital to the brightest minds in web3. Each Nailwal Fellow will receive $50k in grant money as well as access to Symbolic Capital’s resources and internal directory in order to spend six months entirely focused on trying new ideas and building in web3.
The program is open to founders from all walks of life, regardless of age or geography. We have a focus on backing individuals with technical backgrounds who are are able to get their hands dirty building tangible products and dapps during their six month fellowship.
Our mission is to bring the brightest minds into web3. The Nailwal Fellowship is designed to provide founders with the financial security and resources to pursue exciting and bold ideas in web3. We know that taking the leap of faith to pursue entrepreneurship is scary, so we want to give you the support you need to commit to building.
We plan to run one cohort every year from August through January. Applications are open from May into June and interviews will be conducted from late June into July to select the 10 fellows in each cohort.
