Help with raising capital. We’re hosting Xoogler Demo Day Blockchain on 11/11 (apply here) and Xoogler Demo Day EMEA on 12/9 (apply here). Founders only need to prepare 1 slide, pitch for 2 minutes and join a Q&A networking session that’s held after the pitches to meet investors. Investors, purchase your Demo Day NFT to join the pitches and register here to attend.
Connect with Talent. 465 Xooglers/Googlers have listed themselves to find a co-founder. 500+ have listed themselves to find jobs.
