OnePiece Labs, the leading startup incubator for Web3 companies, and Uplandme, Inc, the Metaverse super app, made an announcement about joining forces to integrate the developer ecosystem into the Web3 Metaverse. With this strategic partnership, OnePiece Labs, an industry leader in the funding of potential decentralized initiatives, and Upland, a company with extensive experience in developing and growing Web3 technology for the Metaverse industry, will combine their respective areas of competence.
Talking about this latest development, Murray Newlands, Partner at OnePiece Labs, said: “The OnePiece Labs and Uplandme, Inc. partnership will provide promising Web3 startups with the necessary resources, mentorship, and support to launch innovative technologies in the Metaverse. We believe this strategic alliance is the new model for bringing these Web3 startups opportunities to scale globally.”
Bringing Web2 Developers to Web3 Opportunities
OnePiece Labs will begin hosting an incubation program for talented startup teams on March 7. This program will provide these teams with mentorship, resources, and support to assist them in building, launching, and scaling their products. Uplandme, Inc. will offer incentives and helpful feedback to participating entrepreneurs as a part of the partnership. The overarching objective of the alliance is to add value to the participating firms and strengthen their network.
The successful teams will be invited to become members of the Upland Developer Community, where they will obtain discoverability, a connection to the global Upland user community, monetization options, and the technological foundations necessary to build a Web3 experience. Upland is the only platform that enables developers to generate blockchain-based digital assets, such as NFTs and smart contracts, with very little or no prior knowledge of blockchain technology.
Upland Co-Founder Dirk Lueth said: “The partnership between OnePiece Labs and Uplandme, Inc. is the new model for bringing traditionally Web2 developers to Web3 opportunities and will scale globally. Upland’s vision is to create the most comprehensive, innovative, and immersive ecosystem for all Uplanders. The new projects from the incubation program will help Upland expand its Metaverse to include more interactive functions, such as virtual parties, events on a cruise, virtual galleries and malls, and more.”
Upland has recently partnered with FIFA and the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, and they will also be supporting the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™ later on in the summer. Via its open Metaverse platform, Upland brings together gamers, collectors, and fans from all over the world and provides them with a variety of gamified experiences. Players are given the ability to engage with a vast range of digital FIFA football items, such as teams, mascots, gameplay videos, historical moments, and the official Upland market.
