Tribe Accelerator, Singapore’s first government-backed blockchain accelerator, has added another batch of big names to its corporate partners list. 


According to the Straits Times, IBM, Citibank, and Ubisoft have all joined Tribe as corporate partners for the second edition of its four-month program. The three giants, Tribe says, will help participating start-ups gain better access to international markets and resources. 


Since its launch, the program has gained support from various government and corporate partners, including AXA, BMW, Intel, R3, and Temasek. The inaugural cohort – which wrapped up in July this year – helped its participants raise nearly $9 million within three months. 


The second batch of participants come from a wide of industries, with Binance-backed digital identity and password management firm Torus, distributed database service provider Bluzelle, and on-demand telehealth startup WhiteCoat among the chosen few.
