The second day is invite only. Three to five pilot projects will be selected to engage in deep dive workshops to help develop the concept and identify potential bridges to further their cause. We are on the hunt for projects/products/initiatives/start-ups that uses or is interested in using blockchain technology to address one or more of the SDGs and are keen on extending their reach beyond the EU. Project themes may include (but are not limited to) impact entrepreneurship, supply chain transparency, behavioural change, tokenisation and governance.

Apart from pioneering entrepreneurs/projects we are also looking for those interested in funding these projects or are eager to collaborate and help with the successful implementation. Selected pilots will be contacted by the first week of March.
