The Boston Blockchain Association has launched the “Gateway to Blockchain Entrepreneurship,” an exciting nine-week summer program aimed at undergraduate college students in Greater Boston. This first-ever program lets students see the blockchain industry from a variety of perspectives, learn how they can provide value to the ecosystem today, and understand how to build a career in this exciting new industry.
The program concludes with a FINAL PITCH NIGHT, where students will share their ideas for a new blockchain venture or startup, refined and honed over the nine-week program. You’re invited! We hope you’ll join us to hear the students’ ideas, as well as learn about the success of this pioneering program, which we at the BBA are judging based on our graduates’ future engagement and success in the industry.

Learning about blockchain and DLT is difficult. Overwhelming amounts of unstructured information lies scattered across the web. Plenty of efforts are wasted away in isolated searches for golden nuggets. However, with proper guidance and cooperation, we can hone our skills faster and build a collective body of knowledge.
