Venture Development

Shortening time to market

At R3, we believe every blockchain application built on Corda—no matter what stage—deserves a trusted partner who is invested in their long-term success. That’s why we have an entire team at R3 committed to accelerating and cultivating CorDapps who sit at the edge of adoption.

We offer a variety of resources and support to blockchain startups and entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey to help shorten their time to market and dramatically increase their odds of long-term success.


Programs + Benefits


For early stage companies using DLT, we can help kick start your business by introducing you to entrepreneurs and founders in R3’s blockchain ecosystem—everyone from angel investors and VCs, to mentors and fellow CorDapp builders. We offer tools to help businesses get off the ground such as start-up playbooks, workshops, invitations to Corda community demo days, meetups, workshops and more.

Incubator and accelerator partner programs

In addition to R3 hosted meetups and events, we also have a growing network of third party incubator and accelerator programs you can leverage. Additionally, we offer mentorship, complimentary Corda Enterprise evaluation license, as well as technical support for program participants to maximize the benefits for your business.

R3 In-Residence

For selected start-ups that qualify as rapid accelerators of Corda adoption and have the potential to revolutionize entire industries, R3 offers a nine-month in-residence program at one of the R3 offices. The in-residence program includes a number of benefits, including close proximity to R3’s Solution Engineers, Strategic Alliances and Direct sales teams to really help jump start your business.
