\u00e6ternity, the next-generation, open-source blockchain, recently announced a coalition with MIC, the Microsoft Innovation Center, in order to fuel the expansion of the blockchain technology across Malta. In the light of this partnership, AE VENTURES, \u00e6ternity\u2019s investment arm, along with Microsoft, is to conduct regular blockchain events across Malta with an aim to foster the country\u2019s involvement in the blockchain businesses.\r\n\r\nBlockchain intrinsically has the potential to disrupt several economies and businesses, aiding the distribution of wealth and enforcing transparency of the power structures.\r\n\r\nIn these circumstances, \u00e6ternity intends to solve scalability, economic, and security issues. It is also known for its user-friendly interface for gaining access to smart contracts over the network.\u00a0 AE Venture, the investment firm offering initial funding as well as advisory backing for prominent blockchain projects runs \u00e6ternity Starfleet, which is an exhaustive global acceleration program focused over seed-stage startups specializing in blockchain.\r\n\r\nMary Downing, Manager of Microsoft Innovation Center, said,\r\nAfter all the hype there has been about blockchain in recent years, now is the time to demystify all the doubts there could still be about this technology. We are very proud to have \u00e6ternity on board as our second Microsoft Innovation Center partners. Having \u00e6ternity promote and nurture blockchain startups from the Microsoft Innovation Center will not only bring a more flexible development of new technology but will also be an opportunity to promote blockchain as a tangible technology that brings real value.\r\nAn intensive training session entrenched across a week is to be conducted by MIS for blockchain startups.\r\n\r\nThe global accelerator program, \u00e6ternity Starfleet, surveyed over 100 startups based on blockchain from all over the world, inviting 15 of them as participants of the program. The program starts on November 4th, 2019.\r\n\r\nThis intensive program training will offer high-quality education, content, lessons, along with workshops headed by smart industry professionals. It is explicitly designed to offer the budding blockchain startups a sea of information and practical knowledge that will be needed to succeed in this business as well as in product development.\r\n\r\nIt also delivers a deeper analysis of \u00e6ternity blockchain, with all its features as well as programming languages explained.\r\n\r\nAfter the Global Starfleet acceleration program, ten participants will be chosen in an extra 5-week long mentorship. It will be summoned with a Demo session where the chosen teams are awarded an investment proposal worth $100,000 USD in the form of AE tokens. It will also be accompanied by an extra 6-month mentorship as well as acceleration training. A huge portfolio of ambassadors, developers, experts, mentors, investors, as well as events of the \u00e6ternity community will be accessible to this startup.\r\n\r\nJarek Bialek of AE Ventures, said,\r\nWe are excited to be partnering with the Microsoft Innovation Center and we see this as the next step in \u00e6ternity\u2019s global policy. Malta is a great place for developing blockchain ideas and bringing them to life, this is why we believe that more Starfleet alumni will choose to incorporate their companies here.
