This dedicated accelerator program will help a select cohort of startups focused on building in Web3 to deliver solutions that improve the global retail and commerce experience. The chosen teams will focus on building across areas that include decentralized infrastructure, data and growth solutions, immersive experiences and the metaverse, and the intersection of AI and blockchain technology.

Thomas Kang, Vice President, Store Nº8, said: “Decentralized commerce has the potential to unlock new value in the global commerce ecosystem, so we are excited to partner with Outlier Ventures to support and engage with entrepreneurs building at the forefront of this technology on their path to scale.”
The chosen teams will receive support from industry-leading mentors in areas like building and refining their product roadmap, community building, token economy and launches, fundraising and pitching, governance and more.
Jamie Burke, CEO and Founder, Outlier Ventures, said: “We think dCommerce represents a huge opportunity to unbundle ecommerce into its constituent parts, and into a more decentralized and composable stack of protocols to create a more efficient, equitable and improved experience for retailers and consumers from CRM to last-mile delivery. There is clearly no better partner than Store Nº8, as Walmart’s incubation arm, so we are thrilled to launch this accelerator program together.”
