The Boston Blockchain Association has launched the “Gateway to Blockchain Entrepreneurship,” an exciting 9-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 9-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.
