Workshops and Mentors

Every activity and initiative in the Base Camp programs is intended to help founders progress.

Founders got invaluable insights in various fields such as product engineering & UX design, fundraising, token design & tokenomics, marketing & community, and legal from both mentors and Outlier experts.
