About Corda Challenge India
Kickstart your blockchain application development with support from R3
Have an idea or prototype for a blockchain application that solves a business problem? Over the coming months, R3 will host its first ever Corda Challenge: India, an exciting competition where startups will compete to solve key challenges in the Indian market by leveraging Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). Participants will have the chance to accelerate the development of their solution and work directly with a team of industry experts from R3, Federal Bank, ICICI Bank and Microsoft. Winning startups will receive a $20K investment, a one-year Corda Enterprise license to support you in getting your application live, and an opportunity for a commercial pilot with our sponsors.
Over three rounds, participants will be charged with pitching, designing, and developing a unique application built on Corda, R3’s open source blockchain platform, that solves for one of the three use-cases defined by our sponsors.
Entries will be narrowed down to a handful of finalists who will present a full stack prototype of the application to a panel of judges. Successful finalists could win up to USD $20K investment from R3, in addition to continued support from our sponsors to help bring their product to market. What's not to like? Apply now!
