Digital assets breached the stratosphere this summer creating extraordinary hype, disbelief and skepticism. All the while a core group of Vancouver startups, academics, coders and investors continued to build out world class products and services garnering the attention of the Global Blockchain community.

Join us during Vancouver Startup Week when we bring together members of the Vancouver Blockchain community, including investors, entrepreneurs, researchers and experts to learn about how you can get involved in building businesses and investing in blockchain technologies and digital assets.

Presented by BlockTech Lab, British Columbia Blockchain Consortium, and Blockchain at UBC, this event marks the official launch of an initiative by BC’s blockchain community to build a Blockchain Global Center of Excellence ecosystem in Vancouver. We will also be announcing the launch of BC’s first blockchain incubator and presenting how to get involved in this exciting and world changing ecosystem.
