Massa signed a partnership with Plaine Images to give birth to ICC³, a call for projects combining Web3 and creative industries in the Hauts-de-France region. The call for projects will be closed on September 25 and a decision will be made by the two partners as to those selected to go further.
What is it about?
Plaine Images is a European hub for creative industries (with Ankama, Cyber Group Studio, Lylo, Wakanim, Bleass, Music Story in its ecosystem), with a vocation for incubation and growth acceleration of young companies in this domain. Massa Labs, launched in 2020, is working on the development of a new blockchain and supports the emergence of innovative projects on its new Layer 1.
Together, through ICC³, the two partners wish to identify project leaders who want to build on Massa — whether they are new projects to be incubated, companies launched in a growth acceleration process and wishing to benefit from support, or established companies looking for new challenges and opportunities.
Adrien Laversanne-Finot, co-founder of Massa Labs and director of scientific research: “We are really enthusiastic. It has been more than a year that we have had the opportunity to exchange in different areas with Plaine Images. It was only natural that we decided to join forces. Innovation is really what defines us, and being able to bring our revolutionary technology to creative companies — as gamers — is a priority for us.”
How to apply?
To apply, nothing could be easier: click on this link (before September 25)! Four factors will be studied to determine the projects that can benefit from the support:
- The match with the cultural and creative industries,
- The motivation to use Massa blockchain,
- The innovative nature of the project,
- The potential of the team to carry out this project (shortlisted projects will then be required to make a pitch in front of the Plaine Images and Massa teams).
The selected projects will then be able to benefit from Plaine Images support, in the Hauts-de-France region (in France), as well as from the supervision and mentorship of the Massa teams for the blockchain part of their project.
Massa is a blockchain designed to be truly decentralized, fast, and scale from launch. The Massa Blockchain Testnet was launched in July 2021, providing an easy way for anyone to test its protocol, and has been continuously improving since then. Massa testnet has now more than 7000 validators.
