MetaPod (previously Meta-X-lerator) is a hybrid accelerator program, started by the creators of MCON, to onboard and accelerate new DAOs, communities, projects and contributors into the Ethereum ecosystem.
Leveraging IRL local meetups, the MetaPod program educates and onboards Web2 projects and communities into the world of Web3 & DAOs, while simultaneously incubating new Web3 startups and ideas.
Promising teams will be shortlisted for the 6-week MetaPod Accelerator Program, where they will start, run and grow their DAOs/communities. Throughout the 6 weeks, they will receive advisory, coaching and connections to grant providers, service guilds, investor DAOs and more.

2500 DAI = Larva level
