Working in tandem with various partners, the EcoBoost program provides full lifecycle support for high-potential projects.
First announced at Consesus 2019, EcoBoost is a US $100 million initiative designed to grow the Neo ecosystem.
Operated by the Neo Global Development EcoGrowth department, the program works by building up a partner network to provide assistance to Neo-based projects.
