Background of Sandeep Nailwal
Sandeep Nailwal is one of the co-founders of Polygon – a popular blockchain that enables cheap and fast transactions. Coming from humble beginnings in Jamna-Paar, Delhi, he experienced financial difficulties throughout his life. He worked hard just to pay bills before eventually finding success in web3. Now, he wants to give back by providing opportunities for others who are facing similar struggles.
The Nailwal Fellowship is an initiative that will invest $50,000 in ten individuals over the course of one year to bring more people into the blockchain industry. In addition to the funds provided, recipients will also receive support from Symbolic Capital in the form of weekly mentorship sessions, access to tools for connecting with top founders and investors, and the ability to raise funding if they start their own venture as a result of this program.
Anyone interested in participating must submit an application detailing their background story or project idea that they would like to build on Polygon’s platform. They must also show how it can benefit web3 overall. Additionally, applicants must demonstrate commitment towards building something special within web3 over six months while receiving support from Nailwal himself as well as other members of his team at Symbolic Capital who will be assigned as mentors during this period.
The Web3 Fellowship Program provides aspiring entrepreneurs with much needed financial support along with guidance from experienced professionals within web3 technology space. Despite coming from difficult circumstances himself, Sandeep Nailwal has made it possible for others struggling financially or otherwise can pursue their dreams without having financial worries standing in their way..
