Axelar Grants Program

Axelar is dedicated to launching Web3 ideas that have the potential to change the world. Our grant program provides up to $25,000 to kickstart idea-stage projects. Mentorship, technical support and our top-tier investor network help teams get to pre-seed and seed funding.

Grants fall within 4 main categories:

  • Open source

  • Infrastructure

  • Research + education

  • Community growth


Accelerator Programs

In 2022, Axelar partnered with LongHashX to accelerate and invest in the next generation of leading projects building chain-agnostic and interoperable dApps. Applications are now closed.

LongHashX has run accelerators for Filecoin, Polkadot and other top-tier projects. Axelar brought in record numbers of applications submitted by projects building multi-chain to ensure their dApps can be better than anything on the centralized Web.

Axelar recently announced its new cohort of LongHashX accelerator and Grant Program participants.

Past Participants

“Axelar is the only interoperability network with a security and scalability model that satisfied us. Their infrastructure-first approach provides an incredibly robust developer experience, it even reminds us of web2 (don't tell anyone).”
