Do you want to start a new blockchain venture but aren’t sure where to start?

Are you searching for a co-founder but don’t know where to look?

Are you going to various networking events, but can’t find like-minded people?

| Join Serendipia Nest & The DEN and begin building your blockchain startup for social impact!

Startup Saturday – 12-Hour Blockchain Challenge is an event dedicated to helping you to find your technical co-founder, connect with a business co-founder, and create a blockchain prototype. In this event, you bring a previously non-prototyped idea and work with a team of business people and developers to create magic. Along the way, you will get a chance to learn many things about what a startup is, all in one day!

We will provide lunch, all you need is to bring an idea or development skills, that has no prior prototype, so you can validate it. We will form various teams with about three to five members per team. Or we can use the Jigsaw technique to prototype an idea or many ideas.

| Audience

Blockchain enthusiasts, developers, business owners looking for real-world working blockchain solutions, futurists, hackers, fellow cypherpunks as well as all other people interested in developing a social impact with digital transactions through blockchain technology.
